I'm always amused by the artistic purists that fail to understand that Canon is a business that supports our creativity. The ability for Canon to market glass to photo & video means everyone gets better glass and we get better support from a leading brand. Many of the technical issues can be satisfied for the majority of the market's needs -maybe not those here- but that IS a good thing for everyone... even the artistic purists.
Like many here, it's easy to see that Canon management needs to better collaborate within their product groups to ensure continued success. I hope they get it together for everyone's sake!
I'm with "eyeone"... they should be embarrassed that Sony beat them to this launch. Their cam & lens businesses are HUGE. IMO, this is a clear indication that management is "siloed" into parallel universes. What a shame!
