Great question, can some one comment. If this is achievable, many will jump to buy Canon 6D
How could they improve the performance with firmware?
I'm not an engineer, but as far as I know the sensor is a physical device. With only a single f5.6 cross point sensor in the middle (and additional f2.8 vertical sensitive sensor), and 10 other f5.6 horizontal sensitive sensors, that's all she wrote! I don't know what Canon could possibly do to improve the AF performance at least significantly - perhaps they could improve the sensitivity but that would be about it.
On paper it stinks (almost drove me to Nikon ), in practice it's pretty darned good. But, I have absolutely run across times when I swear everything is wrong for the outlying sensors.
For AI, I've found directly approaching or leaving objects tough to track. And, the fps is pretty sad too - I'd say much worse than my 60D. Still, I love the camera and what it does right is pretty sweet.
