Wait, where's the option for "I have an arbitrary bias and will threaten to move to Nikon, but, in reality I'm either not currently with Canon or would never buy/shoot in this price/spec range"?
Or was that "Laughable. On aggregate, these specs are a day late and a dollar short compared to what Canon's competitors are offering."
I voted 'what I was expecting' but I wanted to get a read of the most incendiary alpha-fanboys and DXO believers vs. the most dyed-in-the-wool Canon believers.
You know, people complained about the 60D . . . then complained that the 5D mk 2 took too much time to replace, but honestly, though they didn't have 'it all', they were good cameras.
Now we've got a 70D (which is a true successor to a 50D, even from the complainers), the 7Dmk2, 5Dmk3, and 1Dx . . . the only tradeoffs are price. Big Fat Hairy Deal. I got my 5Dmk3 for around $2600 with an aftermarket warranty . . .
Assuming Nikon's stuff is about as good as Canons (or better if you believe some), we've got the best choice of cameras with the fewest drawbacks ever . . . I think people just like to complain.
