I 2nd the Wasabi batteries in fact, the latest versions have been bypassing the Canon warning screen with properly reversed engineered circuitry.

Canon's bread and butter for bodies are 1.6 variants. The sales fund R&D for better cameras of all varieties. I personally use only FF but why in the world would I have anything against what someone else uses? It would be very juvenile.

How often does someone  give a technical/gear related gift to a person in a field they know little about and that giving experience turns out well?

I would much rather be given a hand written note and a gift card expressing the sentiment and let me do the choosing.

Let me tell you as a former owner of the 2.8 and the 17-40 I am happier than ever with the new 16-35 f/4. Unless shooting wide in low light is a priority I seriously think anyone should consider this latest lens. Corners are better, coma, is better, static subject handholdibility is fantastic. Very happy.

Plus it's way cheaper!

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.

Furthermore it seems more and more non Canon users are frequenting the site. It's their prerogative to do so but just to stir the pot? Please. There are other vacant bridges.

You're blatantly ignoring the considered opinion of a lot of Canon experts: If you cannot make do with what Canon currently offers, there's something wrong with you and/or your photography.


Well said Marsu

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

I agree with that statement. What happens when the date has elapsed? Does the next round of whining begin? Are their calendars marked?
Furthermore when multiple facilities suffer physical and radiation damage it is a given that production cycles are effected.

PEOPLE!
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.

I guess time has just been flying by as I have enjoyed my Mk3. Plus I don't get body gas only glass gas so they can put out a Mk4 with all the bells and whistles you guys complain you can't live without, haha and I'll spend my money elsewhere.
