What does it hurt or cost Canon to send out an update for a premier camera that has been very popular and is still for sale as new product? It is very good PR IMO.

The 5d3 is a great camera, you keep complaining about sharpness, Canon came right out and said " we intentionally have made the files soft to allow the user to sharpen as much as they like" I use CS5 and have had great results in both noise and sharpness. I tried uploading the canon disc to my mac laptop and it wouldnt take, it would though on the newer imac, both units are Intel, go figure.
I recently shot a night job at 5000 asa, all action, car chases at night on the Vegas strip using the 24-105 and 16-35, sometimes with a pola and some without. My biggest complaint.... The Live View button. Its in the worst possible place. I am shooting action with a sport finder, so I've removed the plastic eye piece, while shooting I quickly change from vertical to horizontal, with and without the sport finder, when shooting while looking thru the finder my face was constantly pushing against the Live View button, I didn't know what was happening, the camera was freezing up, the screen went black, I was losing valuable shots, until I realized what was happening.... This was very annoying to say the least, aside from the focus points I couldn't see, at least on the 5d2 I always knew my point of focus was, other than this we got a great little camera for a fraction of the 1d mk4, and the X to come.
this is quite an old thread my first copy was faulty and i returned it and got a new one the new one
is completely different to the first copy and so far is awesome even without any AFMA on any of my lenses
His "knighthood" was announced today. Threy just might use him to light the Olympic Flame in the Olympic Stadium.
For some reason, I imagined them literally using him to light the torch, like a giant flame.
What do you guys think? I am on to something promising?
You could complain to the television networks about the overloaded network time for the Olympics and accuse Canon of product placement with all those white lens at the torch ceremony.
