I'd love to see an AE-1 styled digital body with at least the specs below:
Who else is interested in this sort of Camera?
I'm not at all interested in AE-1 style. It wasn't that attractive back then, even less so now. However, I'm very, very interested in AE-1 size & weight for a full frame camera.
There is an interesting recent interview with Canon designer Yoshiaki Sugiyama in which he says: "I believe that the optimum size among Canon cameras is the AL-1.” What's notable about that is that the AL-1 was made in 1982 and it was small. So he feels that Canon achieved their optimal camera size 32 years ago!
At the end of the interview he says "I previously said that I believe the optimum size among Canon cameras is the AL-1. I believe that the trend towards compact, lightweight equipment is a certainty among categories encompassed by advanced amateurs, and even professional equipment, [so] the entire [EOS] system will move toward a more lightweight form."
So I'm looking forward to smaller & lighter EOS cameras!
