DB lol an optimist skeptic. Canon has been solving the puzzle pretty good for a while now. The 7D just happens to be the first legit poor mans sports camera. They made a poor mans 1dsm3 in the 5D. Now the 5DM3 is kinda the poor mans 1dx but it doesn't legitimately fill the sports action category so It really is up to another camera to do that right. On the other hand the 1dx isn't really the 5dm3 big brother in my opinion. We still need a studio version 1d something of the 5dm3 and a small version of the 1dx unless Canon is changing its lineup process. These are thoughts on the matter, i claim no superior knowledge. In fact I a dumb sometimes lol.
Pakosouthpark swivel screens aren't upgrades for the heavy shooters they compromise weather proofing and increase repair needs as more things can break. I personally don't care about wifi or GPS but believe it should be in all cameras however the 6d has it because the body is plastic. Magnesium alloy has been the body chassis for the better canon bodies for quite some time now and i can vouch for its durability on my 1d series camera hitting concrete and not missing a beat. I do believe we have had specialized plastics for some time that rival and surpass metal, it only a matter of time before we see some manufacturer switching out their foundries for plastics and making them fully plastic. Lenses are being made now that are plastic like the 100 F2.8 macro for example. You could drop it and you wouldn't have a permanent dent rendering a locked focus, it potentially could be able to take a drop with a bounce instead. Maybe the 6D is the beginning of a new frontier of body making processes because it is bordering on pro more than any xxd or xxxd camera yet. Maybe carbon fiber is an option for internals to make the 1d series much lighter. I believe a camera body design revolution needs to happen in the near future but it may take a company like Sony to push that envelope of innovation to get Canon off its comfortable A**. Lightness of a pro product has yet to be dealt with. Each 1D they have claimed how they are lighter than the previous but that was more thanks to their battery technology and size. They have yet to really solve that. It will have to really be sold as more durable to the 1 series owners for it to launch out into the wild.
Ok, i got on a tanget a bit there.
