Now that the 7D Mark II has been announced and we know all the specs and pricing, do any of you look back on the countless threads and posts that you read and/or wrote as time wasted?
What could YOU have done with the cumulative minutes, hours, days, or even WEEKS you spent over the last few years reading/writing about what the 7D Mark II was supposed to be, what you thought it should or shouldn't be, what a "serious photographer" (absolute DUMBEST term ever) would require of it, what would cause Canon, Inc to implode immediately if it were, what would cause you to sell all of your gear, swear off photography, and move to Namibia if it were?
Yes, I am fully aware of the irony of this post - no need to point it out. The purpose of this post is to help us all to remember that whatever we say, whatever we think, whatever we want, shout about, get enraged over, etc., doesn't actually matter. Companies are going to do what they're going to do without our input and ESPECIALLY without our knowledge. Let's be honest, if our input mattered, we wouldn't be on this forum - we'd be hanging out with Canon R&D. So, don't take things so seriously. Just lighten up and enjoy PHOTOGRAPHY and leave the speculation and bickering to those with nothing better to do.
