I think that the point Neuroanatomist is trying to make is that Canon did not release any "pro" cameras in 2014, they couldn't be on a list limited to "2014 releases." Had Canon released the 5DMkIV in 2014 and not made the list then it might be considered a bad sign. Not reading Norwegian (heck, still working on my native English) I don't know what the categories were but did Canon release any camera's in 2014 in time to be evaluated for this article that fit into any of the categories?
No, it is not useless, because it is a reference for people thinking of buying into a camera system. And the advice they are getting does not include Canon. Whether you or I agree with their recommendations, is absolutely irrelevant. Ruling these lists in the past has been one of the main contributors to Canon´s previous success and now they´re gone.
It is in Norwegian though. It only list 2014 releases. Best pro camera is Nikon D810 ("the amateur´s dream, the pro´s choice"). Link attached:
Well, that makes the 'recommendations' completely useless as far as high-end cameras. But thanks for sharing.
I, personally, feel that the 7D, when introduced, and the 7DII are both marginally "pro" cameras (and I own one of each). And the release date was late enough that I didn't think it had time to be evaluated for this particular article (reason I said: in time to be evaluated). Also, because of my ignorance of Norwegian, I don't know what the criteria were.
BTW, when I read where you still drag around a wooden canoe and camera equipment I had to think to myself, "He is sure tougher than this old man."
