Been thinking about this for awhile and decided I'd act on it.
If you are unhappy with Canon's perceived failure to offer (choose any of the following) high megapixel body, mirrorless full frame camera, more dynamic range, shadow detail) I propose the following:
Send me a check or Pay Pal me $2,000 as a deposit, telling me what feature you want improved.
I will deposit it in a special savings account and will not spend the money, except under the conditions I will list below.
After you and 50,000 of your like-minded friends have sent me these checks, I will forward the money to Canon as a deposit for them to use in developing the camera feature you want. It is no guarantee they will comply, but I suspect the fact that 50,000 people have demonstrated a willingness to place a $2,000 down payment on the camera of their choice, will indeed get Canon's attention.
Now, there is one condition I am placing on this offer. Anyone who starts or participates in a thread whining about how Canon isn't paying attention to them or is about to go bankrupt because their personal needs are not being attended to, I will deduct 10% of your deposit as an trolling tax.
Basically, you must put your money where your mouth is. This has the added advantage of demonstrating whether or not there is a demand for the features you find so significant.
I am willing to add accounts for other features, in case I'm missing any. By the way, it is 50,000 x $2,000 for each feature. As some of these features are contradictory, you cannot ask for more than one for each deposit.
If, after two years, any account has not reached the threshhold of 50,000 participants, I will refund the money minus a small handling fee.
