One of my first cameras, the F-1, was a camera that I used for more than one decade. Until the early 70ies this system was my companion. My first air-to-air shots, birth of my children, and a lot more milestones in my life have been held by photography. I liked Canon, it was worth the price you paid for it, cheaper than Nikon. So, one Canon body and lens followed another.
I earlier times (if someone remembers that we used 35mm film), the body and the lens by itself were important tools. The film the other technical variable. The variables have benne merged in the last years. Now the www, electronics,... speed up our lifes. Five years of renewal cylcle were normal, today unthinkable.
I like the lCanon enses and the user-philosophy, also the performance.
But our consumer expectations got bigger and bigger too. And Canon is not meeting our high expectations like we want that Canon does. Some other brands are cheaper and more innovative, have better particular solutions.
So, Canon gets another chance to bring out some successors and I will wait onother year for an good mirrorless camera and an successor for the 5DIII. If this successor is "out of range", Sony or another mirrorless camera will get their chance.
