I guess they want to stem the flow to Sony by this development announcement.

The specs really address the major issues with the original R for still nature photographers - low frame rate and hopefully eliminate the staccato evf issues. Will see about the AF capabilities - but hopeful. Can't wait to use this camera with my great EF lenses and accessories. Not all that interested in the video side.

I imagine 8K video will be extremely crippled. Such as maybe no AF and low bit rate, otherwise you have a 30fps camera at 33MegaPixels or so. Already the stills specs equal the 1DxIII on speed, so the AF must be insuperior (as DPixel AF already is over PDAF, certainly for speed). I imagine rolling shutter will be an issue that renders 20fps shooting pointless, for anything but snails ;) but at least we have 2 card slots (1 of which must be CFExpress to handle 8k 30fps or 4k 120fps). Could be a very interesting camera.

On the other hand I am not quite sure about lenses that top out at f7.1, just becasue the sensor can focus at small apertures does not mean the lens should follow suit.

Live view focussing on the 1DxIII looks pretty awesome however... :o I think the example I saw was a "FroKnows" video.
