Its not the screen size that is below average, it is the dots.

Looks like we made a mistake, I am sorry about that. Thanks for letting us know we will fix that up soon.

you state not self cleaning sensor, but on other review sites it states self cleaning sensor??

Are you sure? According to Canon's website it is weather sealed, that is not to say it is waterproof but it should protect against moisture and dust.

Sorry, but you're way off on the 1D3 not being weather sealed. You've got it backasswards: it's the 5D2 that isn't sealed. If you're going to post up info, get it right.
