Can you name a revolutionary move or two, by Canon or others, just for comparison? I think the last 'revolutionary' releases were the Contax N Digital and the 1Ds, the very first full frame CCD and CMOS dSLRs. Pretty much everything since then has been 'just plain ordinary' and 'market driven' incremental improvements. A few more MP. More AF points. More cross-type AF points. A couple more fps. More metering zones. Etc.
Uhmm .. D800.
a truckload more MP and DR to match, lots of AF ability, raw video, plenty of features, etc.
Yes, those are the exact sort of incremental improvements I was talking about. Or, if you prefer, the 5D Mark II was just as revolutionary, or at least, as revolutionary as 20D with a FF sensor can be.
