Odds are they will run their older production lines as soon as they can sell these sensors.that statement makes no sense.
I admire the skillfull argumentation on your side. Would you care to elaborate further?
If you'd be the Canon CEO, you'd close down every older production line as soon as a new tech is available that cannot be implemented as an in-place upgrade? Well, you're company wouldn't be in business for long :-)
Btw: Is it just me, or are fewer and fewer people actually attempting to have a civilized conversation around here? If it continues this way, I hope Canon won't release anything new for the next years as any new release seems to legitimize rudeness.
7D2 is a prosumer camera, like the 5D3 and tells us Canon release cycles are increasing, both for economical and technological reasons.
But forget the 7D and revise your math on the 5D. if the 5D2 was 3 years and 5D4 was 3.5 years, the 5D4 will be?
Exactly: 4 years (rounded down from 4.1). So that would be March 2016. But we will not be so lucky.
You have fallacy in your logic to believe on two data points that a release cycle is linear.
I highly doubt the 5DMKIV will be released 4.1 years after the 5DMKIII and the D5V 4.9 years after that.
If anything, seems to me that the 5D MK III might have been a tad late.
More importantly, Canon will likely release its upgrades when it feels there is a demand as well as have a product they think meets that demand
It's far too early for a 5DMk4, Canon is not Nikon.
you know, a quick google would have told you how silly your post is. 5D was replaced in 3 years, 5dII in 3.5 years...
sept 2015 (next year) would be .. what? 3.5 years.
