I personally think they missed the boat by not including a vari-angle tilt/swivel screen on this camera.
Second with Canon mentioning reduced moire, I wonder if they strengthened the low pass filter, good for video, bad for hi res stills.
Finally, the price is a bit high all things considered, I thought $3500 would be the kit lens package price not body only!
I totally agree with your pint. Recently I have bought this camera and I really find the absence of these features. Moreover the images are coming blur and there is some noise in the pictures. I don't know it's setting problem or anything else.
