Who cares? Just give us ONE camera
You should care: mirrorless is the future of Canon's camera business; more to the point, it's the future profit of Canon's camera business. Success of mirrorless mean more ¥¥, which means happy executives; and happy executives means (at least in Japan) more R&D ¥¥ for the full camera line. Canon cannot succeed financially by producing just the camera equipment you want at a price you are willing to pay. You should cheer every successful Rebel and PowerShot if you want more R&D for DSRL-type equipment.
The irony of it is that these DSLR bodies are highly resilient to physical abuse, but an impact can shift the position of the AF module enough to cause problems.
I once dropped my 5DII from waist level to the pavement. Not even a cosmetic scuff on the camera, and it functioned fine afterwords except that all of my AFMA values shifted by ~10 units.
I have a big milestone birthday coming up on May 31 and my wife wants to buy me a special present.Mmmmmmm zero. But I would suggest a 5DMkIII
Wonder what my chances are it will be a 7D MKII?
Unfortunately, some people can see things differently than others. Its not clear cut as to the definition of a design flaw. If a product does not work forever, is it because of a design flaw?
Strange that we suddenly have quite a few first time posters asking the documents to be published or claiming that they've had problems with their gear.
Yet another pasionate debate without the facts.... sigh!
I travel on a lot of and have always wondered why Canon did not make a one battery charger (even if only to buy as an accessory). I use more than one battery a day quite frequently, but would be more than happy with a one battery charger if they made one. As it is now, I just travel with the original.
No third party charger is ever going anywhere near my Canon batteries.
