It´s kind of funny that on the day Canon releases the 7DII, this thread starts.
These threads tend to derail every time. We should have one common goal and that is to make sure Canon spend all their R&D money on the equipment we want. And instead we end up describing each other as DRones, Nikonites, Canonasses or what have you.
Yes, Canon´s cameras are probably better cameras than Nikon, but the sensor in a Nikon camera is better for most of our use, than Canons sensors are. Yes, Canons lens lineup is better than anybody else's, but I still want to be able to buy Zeiss lenses. Yes, Canons CPS is probably the best service in the business and I want that. But I also want at least the same quality sensor in my Canon camera as I could get in a Nikon camera. This is very very simple and it has nothing to do with being a Canonmonkey or a Nikonass. And please don´t reply with the crap statements about sales volumes etc. It´s a waste of CR space. The majority of those buying a DSLR does not even know that there is something called DR. And if they do, they believe it stands for Doctor!
Some of us wants a 24MP camera with splendid DR and high ISO performance. I wish you could get it. I want a 40MP body with splendid DR at lower ISO. Someone wants 4k video. I could´t care less, but I hope you´re gonna get it.
Some of the more agitated Canon sensor defenders here starts to sound like an antique arguing the slide ruler´s advantage over a calculator.
I am still able to live a happy life with my 1DX and 5DIII. But I was very disappointed when I realized that there was no 5DIV or 1DXs coming to Photokina, with a Nikon/Sony busting sensor in it ...
