Just because an upgraded model is significantly better in many/most respects doesn't mean the model it replaces suddenly stops taking the same pictures it's been taking all along.
If you don't want to do the job enough to do it well, do something else.
As for shot per battery.
I understand that cell phones have sensors too, but do you need 50MP or higher in a cell phone?
Also, if it was just sensors, I was talking about... may be I should've been more specific... a7,a7r,a7s,a7II, a9 - what is the point if its a shrinking market? (hence, the question of abandoning ship)
Also, if it is all about the sensor, why not keep it at just sensors (no cameras or lenses, just sensors) and sell to other companies?
I don´t believe you'll find very many real Canon bashers on this forum, but you´ll find quite a few who are getting a bit impatient, having waited for a new high resolution, improved DR, improved low ISO noise sensor for a bit too long.
Yeah, my favorite from this thread was the expectation that a pro renting some gear should not have to calibrate it.
What will happen if such a professional photographer rents (or borrows) a lens at the last moment, but must now spend an hour first to calibrate the combination?
I guess rental houses are supposed to have the same calibration gear Canon should have, then have all rentals hand-delivered by white-glove couriers lest a careless UPS handler drop a box.
Oh, and they should do all that without passing the costs along to the customer.
Ok, that's actually my second favorite. Top honors go to lower crime rates leading to zero insurance premiums.
Sella is unrealistic in his expectations ...
... and lacks perspective on design and manufacturing of high precision equipment.
AFMA allows Canon users to account for differences in their older gear as wear, or even minor dings or knocks that shift parts. ... AFMA gives us a simple, painless way to account for that.
I'm sure Neuro can talk long about calibration of scopes and scanning equipment....even multi-million dollar machines.
Calibration is not indication of inherent lack of quality.
... did Canon release any camera's in 2014 in time to be evaluated for this article that fit into any of the categories?
I am a big fan of job-creation.
Most companies are not big fans of increased labor costs. Those costs are passed on to the consumer. So, I guess you're also a big fan of higher prices.
Funny, I am seeing quite a lot fulltime wedding, portrait and landscape photographers in my vincity, who use 5D mk2 bodies with 17-40, 24-70 mk1 and 70-200 mk1 lenses, while making a living and creating spectacular images. I guess somebody should tell them the wrong of their ways
I don't know what the scope is for automating this process, would it require quite a high human interaction to mount and dismount each item, thinking lens release button?
I would imagine that each machine would be costly, plus use a lot of floor space, thinking test an 800mm lens, plus there would be a requirement for more than one of each, routine calibration etc, I still see the price climbing, though possibly by a much smaller margin.
And in the world of photography.
If you jump ship today... sell off all your Canon or Nikon gear and then 2 or 3 years down the line Sony BetaMaxes/Vaios/XBRs the Alphas and sticks to making sensors and other devices for other manufacturers... what happens to your gear? Will you take a huge price hit trying to get back into Nikon / Canon or who ever is now the market? Or do you just say how great your camera was back in the day and try and justify that you don't need the latest.
