<ironic>I think everyone can beat the OTUS or Sigma lenses with a Canon Lense, even the 50mm f1.8. Just patch your lense, today. It's soooooo easy</ironic>

Not necessarily, once you've dumped the mirror, there's a lot of room inside a legacy mount body where you could put lens elements. I suspect that this is what Canon and Nikon are thinking; why throw away your biggest advantage over your competitors by changing your lens mount? Sony has nothing to lose, the Alpha mount was a distant third place also-ran.
I spoke to Fujifilm recently, and I was told by a senior marketing executive that if Canon and Nikon made serious mirrorless cameras, this would help the format to gain traction. Do you agree?
Well that’s his view! We’ll keep on communicating the benefits of mirrorless but Canon and Nikon dominate the interchangeable lens camera market and if they did come out with serious, reliable mirrorless cameras, I agree that yes - it might stimulate the market and boost sales of our cameras. Maybe it’s intentional that they haven’t launched enthusiast-focused mirrorless cameras, because they’re dominant. They’ve been maturing their systems for years. Maybe it’s strategic that they’re staying away.
- small size with native lenses, for when we want to "go small" and
-"regular size" with "regular lenses" when small size is not needed
Except for the fact that the price of the old 24-70 2.8L went up when the new version was announced!!!
New technologies - are what makes the production cheaper and allows to produce better products FOR THE SAME MONEY.
I don't particularly care about the color, but the 200 F/2.8L that no one ever talks about is black, whereas the 200 F/2L IS (and its predecessor 200 F/1.8 IS) is white. So it seems that 200mm is the 'gray' inflection point for primes.
This is nothing but a shameless marketing of Canon to take extra money from those who strongly waited for a new product on start of sales ). This applies to all company products regardless of how well they are on sale.
I looked at the graphs, and why in the heck would you post graphs of the 1D3 instead of the 1Ds3?
