Hilarious stuff, I love Canon Rumours, great way to finish off the day down here in Asia Land, having a good laugh. it would be even more Hilarious to find out that the chap that started this Post, uses a D800 or a D4, or a Box Brownie.
No such luck ... I shoot Canon
The first thing your 'casual observer' would notice is the 2x higher price of the 1D X, and then assume (correctly) that the 1D X is the superior camera. But how relevant is that? Is your average 'casual observer' going to plunk down $7K, or even $3K, on a camera? Generally, such a decision involves some research. Such research might turn up a list like this:Quote from: TDP
I think what's hard to grasp is why the 5D&6D have a bigger sensor than a 1DX; and the 7D is faster than a 5D; and the 6D has more connectivity features than a 5D or 1DX.
Maybe its just my quirky way of thinking ... but it would make more sense to me if the 7D was as it is today; the 6D (yes FPS too) was the 7D + FF sensor and connectivity; the 5D was the 6D + better/bigger sensor and low light; 1DX was the 5D + grip, processors, better sensor, FPS etc.
And of course those aren't all the bells and whistles that you could improve from one to the next, but you get the idea. You start with a model and each model gets all the features of the prior + better stuff.
Thats what I meant by casual observer ... because to me you just sorta expect a natural flow. I'm certain that isn't unique to Canon or really camera's at all and lots of brands dont exactly stair step up the line.
