    Canon has made some great cameras, but lately they seem to be always a day late and a dollar short. Finally they may include a VF on a line of cameras that should have had VF from the start. And “it is unknown whether it will be capable of shooting 4K videos or not” – knowing Canon, they won’t include 4K, even though all the competition does.
    There’s also Canon’s inexplicable aversion to burst shooting; to Canon “burst” usually means maybe 3fps, and buffer depth might be 6-9 frames if they’re feeling generous.
    It’s really a shame – great IQ and very reliable, but lacking in so many of the key features that make photography (and videography) interesting and enjoyable.
    I made the switch to Panasonic MFT a few years ago and never looked back. I would prefer APS-C mirrorless, but they always either lack the long zoom selection, or the great Panasonic video control, or sufficient programmable function buttons, or all of the above.
