Unfortunately Canon as the market leader is to be blamed partially for the state of the affairs. They were on the right track with the classic 5D and than something unthinkable happened! They went the opposite way of the logic, basically catalyzing demise of DSLR for enthusiasts, amateurs and even in some cases prosumers. In the age of hard reality of surviving in the incredible hard competition from EASY and wonderful not to mention cheap technology, Canon started to cater only to low level professionals like small event photographers (wedding) or extremely high end and exclusive video market, this is laughable business move. They speed up the the process and give the momentum to the alternative technology. I know, I am here forever, reading those silly post, those strange people encouraging Canon to price them self out of the market and demanding futures that nobody really needs instead what everybody is looking for, statements like: just give me 12 fps and high ISO and I buy two of them, or yeah for that I will pay easy $5000-$6000 dollars LOL!!! It really may be to late to reverse this especially seeing all those new cameras coming full of unwanted gimmicks that failed to prove being desired so many times already, but than again if somebody on the position of a leader with such a leverage is unable to really lead than it deserve to sell security cameras and printers only, well maybe for some the dream will come true, and they will be able to own Canon cameras purely professional like the cinema models now, worth a medium size house and feel like a big shots pros... Unquestionable support for Canon of this forum as fascinating as it is, in the end is nothing more than a house of cards build by many eloquent Canon proponents using many clever tricks also including rather harsh elbowing and humiliation.
