Would just like to add that if Steve says the next FCS release is "great," then I personally would be expecting big things and not the rather silly limitation the rumour market would have us believe.

PS. FCS already supports Blu-Ray. Just one example of where you appear to have been misled on some points.

PPS. You're correct that FW800 isn't as fast as eSATA, but I've edited 1080p in real-time using FW800 without issues, so just because something may be faster doesn't necessarily mean its better. USB2 has a "theoretical" faster speed than FW400 but I've yet to see a situation where USB2 beats FW400. Just sayin'.

The point is that video data moves at a particular speed. As long as the transfer method can handle that speed, it's perfectly good for video data. Just because something comes along that does 3x better doesn't really affect results unless you're working on something that requires MORE speed than FW800 can handle. I personally haven't run across that situation yet.
