    As long as it comes to the 1Dx mkII, I'm fine with paid upgrade. Would prefer re-badging to a red 'C' in that case too since it would clearly separate the camera and increase value.
    I'd be perfectly happy with a paid upgrade to C-Log with drop-off at a Canon service center. Those that don't need it, don't have to pay for it.

    I've been waiting off on buying a new DSLR since selling my 1DC and this might help me make my decision. I'm just hoping that they don't end up diverging the 5D into two separate firmware upgrade lines and have the "5DC" require all future firmware upgrades be sent in to Canon. That was a real pain in the ass with the 1DC and ultimately led to fewer features and upgrades than were available on the 1DX.

    I am a big fan of the Ursa Mini 4.6k. Image quality wise, my 1DC (b-cam) doesn't touch it, and I don't believe a 1DX II w/ clog would touch it. And it's a real video camera with mounting points, XLRs, pro codecs, peaking/luts/zebras/etc. However, I do about 70% photo and 30% video, so just having 1D bodies for both photo and video (1DX II & a 1DC) really appealed to me rather than my current situation (1DX & 1DC & Ursa Mini 4.6k). The ursa mini is a beast on a gimbal as well, and the 1DX II w/ it's DPAF would be a no brainer.
