So, here it guys! The rumours were true after all! And it paid off waking up early.

Also a 24/1.4 II, like rumoured:

I must, personally, say, that I’m quite disappointed with the specs. 3.9 fps, 9 focus points, and grip, for example, doesn’t look more interesting than the BG-E4 at all.

Time will tell how it’ll perform though!

Check out the Direct Print Button! I love it!

Only dissapointment is the AF. Why not a 19 point AF? Great job Canon, I'll be getting one for sure, especially if its at $3k.

Megapixel rich, feature poor. No surprise, except for the HD video maybe.

There's definitely no built-in flash on this camera.

Interesting that they decided to go with a new battery system. Not a deal breaker by any means, but I liked the idea of using the same batteries as a backup XXD body.

Hmm...according to Canon, the 5D II is compatible with all Canon EF/EF-S lenses

EF-S?

Sounds very intruiging.

Curious if it can auto-focus while shooting video in HD?

Obviously won't be using phase detection, but seems like contrast-based AF could be used.

Update: Thanks to aero145 who points out RobG's more detailed notes (versus DPR) that does confirm that contrast-based AF can be used while shooting video.

Looks like the EF & EF-S lens question will have to be answered later, as on the actual "spec" sheet by Canon it states EF only....
