"No focus motor Won't autofocus with all lenses"

This is irrelevant for Canon, since they never made a camera with the focusing motor in the body of the camera. They will auto focus with all lenses that are EOS compatible. Obviously lenses that are not autofocus will not autofocus. Lenses from other makers that require a drive motor in the camera body will not fit on this camera. If you use an adapter to force a lens from other makers onto a Canon, all bets are off - they might not work at all.



Also when comparing size and weight of an EOS1 to any other EOS you should mention that its battery grip is built in and accepts a much larger battery. A PRO for the EOS1 could be that there is no need to buy a separate grip. A CON for the 5D could be the need for an additional grip. And vice versa... if one does not like the bulk of a grip, it becomes a CON for the EOS1 and a PRO for the 5D.
