and with the grip, the 6fps make it passable for action too, 6fps is a HUGE difference from the 3.9fps of the 5D2 and a big step from even 5fps. So it has tons of detail for the studio people, the landscape people who want a ton of detail, it has a lot of reach for wildlife and sports, apparently Nikon's best metering and AF effort and can get up to a usable, if not yet ideal, fps for action.
Supposedly they have also radically upped video quality.
I wonder if it uses the column ADC and will have the far better...Show more →
Yep, blame marketing for everything...engineering can do no wrong...not even the 1d3 misfocus debacle. That was all marketings fault.
If engineering had it's way all the time, they would blow their entire load all at once and have nothing new for the future. Product strategy is key to product success, and that is were good marketing comes to play. The Dumbed down 5d2 was a HUGE success for Canon even though we arm chair quarterbacks like to poke holes in it.
