Thanks for sharing your opinion, canonman. I'm recommending others take a large grain of Salt-with-a-capital-S to go along with your Truth-with-a-capital-T. I agree with kubelik that Canon includes this feature for a reason. Just to name one, lots of people rent lenses - would you recommend they rent them for a couple of extra weeks, each time, so they can send them into Canon for adjustment? Something else to consider is that many people who've sent their cameras into Canon to let 'the experts' clean the sensor have reported getting the camera back with more sensor dust than when it was sent in - what makes it certain that 'the same experts' will do a better job at focus adjustment?
Concerning "PowerShot The usual upgrades can be expected to start in late January. Iâ€™ve received nothing out of the ordinary."
I'm thinking of buying the Powershot S95. Should I hold off for a while?
a question that's been bouncing around in my mind is, are we going to get to some critical point where traditional digital update cycles have a paradigm shift and move into longer replacement timelines, maybe 4-5 years instead of 2-3?
in the first decade of digital camera technology, we saw huge jumps in capability every two years, which warranted tight refresh cycles to stay ahead of the competition. things appear to be leveling out for all the major manufacturers right now, however -- I know none of the cameras on market can be described as "perfect" but there definitely seems to be diminishing returns with every cycle of updates.
more AF points, more FPS, more or less pixels, weathersealing, viewfinders ... all of these sort of have a max-out point and we seem to be getting pretty close to it.
i'm thinking about buying a 5dII - do you think i should wait for the 5d Mark III? (i wouldn't have a problem to wait 3 months.. but if it's going to be more like a year i would probably go with the mark II for now ) any thoughts?
