Canon is going to keep being Canon. While features always move downward when new models come out, that does not mean a model is moving up scale.
Certainly, the rebels will get new features, but they will not change in price, when compared to the introductory price of the model replaced.
The price of new models will be held down by the market and in the USA, the strong dollar is pushing prices of imports down. Canon is forced to drop prices due to the low cost of gray market cameras. In Europe, the Euro is not going up in value, so prices will be more stable.
Yep, and really, if this is nothing other than Canon answering Nikon, the models align pretty well
5dr = D810
5dIV = D750
6d = D610
7dII = ?
Kind of amazing to consider the turnaround...I think a year ago most Canon users were probably frustrated...and now, well, they would seem to have among the most versatile of DSLR options
