The video shot with the 15mm fisheye looks like some sort of IMAX filming!

Mentally I have been pooh-poohing all the convergence hype, but the sample videos are beginning to get me excited.

The landscape photo is interesting.  It only took about 30 minutes to download.  I can't get the portrait to download.

Hopefully zooming will not be disabled in video mode.  I cannot find any reference to that; but the manufacturers seem to do that often.

If zoom is not disabled in this 5D Mark II, RED may need not bother with their rumored convergence model offering.

How on earth can zooming be disabled in a camera where zooming is accomplished my manually shifting the lens elements with a mechanical zoom ring (i.e. all current dSLRs)?

Excellent point.  Having video in a DSLR is so new to me that I am probably confusing it with P&S technology.

Hmm, not certain about that, as DPReview says:

Can anyone find any availability statement?

Canon USA lists availability of the new lens as October, but I do not see the Mark II availability.
