Additional technological advancements include an Intelligent Viewfinder, Canon's advanced iFCL metering system, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Multiple Exposure mode.

A newly-designed 61-Point High-Density Reticular AF system is said to be Canon's most sophisticated AF to date, featuring multi-zonewide-area AF for better tracking. A new dedicated AF menu tab saves users from digging through menu functions. A new Multi-layer iFCL (intelligent Focus Color Luminance) metering system takes color and luminosity surrounding chosen AF points into account, whichCanon says will provide new levels of accuracy in fast-changing, tricky light.

I hear/read that the autofocus tracking on this guy is just amazing! I know that the Mark II was lacking a bit in this respect.
