I would buy if it had a crop mode so I didn't have to download horrendously huge files.
I don't think that's a sensible strategy. I sold my canon gear and moved to Fuji, as I didn't want to wait for years for Canon to make a move, and Fuji have rewarded my leap of faith with great cameras like the XT1 and lenses like the 56mm 1.2. Many others are jumping ship now and if Canon leave it too long, it might be too late for them to join the party. Just look what happened to Kodak!
Event-only photographers are a niche market?
I'm holding out for the 85mm f/1.0 L, myself. More light, not less. IMO, the notion that sensor improvements negate the value of fast lenses is just silly. Sensor improvements make fast lenses more capable.
Yes. I want to be able use my aperture as much for creative decisions as just technical(exposure). It's baffled me for years hearing the excuse thrown around from manufactures and other photographers alike that we no longer need fast glass because cameras are now capable of ISO speeds in the realm of science fiction when all you had was film or even just 5-10 years ago with digital. Hell, because we have cameras that can shoot in the 100K+ and 200k+ ISO realms, should manufactures just start making all lenses starting at f/8?
I was browsing at YouTube and saw this interesting video on 7D2... the interesting part is not the 7D2:
it really should have been a EF-22/2.0 STM pancake. Not EF-S. Not 24mm. Not f/2.8.
I agree with your point of view and I would even go further.
It would have been nice for low light purpose (use in a church for example) to have EF 20mm f/1.8 STM. It would be interesting for both APS-C and FF
If Sella wanted to compare tech he should have said so, but he used the term "full frame;" by definition, that is a sensor with dimensions equal to a frame of 35mm film. That is the defining characteristic of "full-frame."
You're suggesting that if I crop an APS-C FoV from a shot with my 1D X, that the IQ of the resulting 7 MP image will be the same as the IQ an uncropped image (assuming I adjusted the framing with a zoom lens or changing the distance). Sorry, that's simply not true.
