It would be better if the mainstream media stopped feeding Canon's ego.. They're just encouraging them to continue their practice of purposefully limiting the cameras they release, and therefore making the consumer pay the price. (1DC/1DX being identical, and the 5DMIII RAW hack is evidence for this, and lets not forget about the absence of a headphone jack on 70D...) I am extremely disappointed that they have been releasing just incremental updates as of lately. Here's praying that the 7DMII breaks the streak..
On internet forums the glass is always half empty. People are always "extremely disappointed" no matter what Canon does. I've been extremely pleased with exactly those incremental updates. Nearly every item of Canon gear that I use is a refined & improved version of some prior Canon gear that I was already quite happy with (cameras, lenses, flashes, etc.). I frankly don't understand praying for a rumored, possibly non-existent camera when the marketplace currently offers real and awesome cameras any day of the week.
