Yop.... But I have to try the 600 I just got, I have the feeling that one is a bit off.....
I think I understand what the op means. It means we paid 100 bucks for a shoddy/lazy software port.
It's always best to have code run natively- it will just be a better, smoother app, period. Witt that said, having two distinct code bases is a pain in the arse for devs. Someone's going to get the short end of the stick here, and sadly it's us Mac folk.
However to the op- chances are most n the forum are only tech guys as far as camera goes so eh don't really have a clue to what the negatives could be. So in this forum, the argument is a wash, unfortunately.
IP is priceless, and Canon like anyone else can sell it at any price they want. Software companies have been doing this for decades.
I sincerely hope the usual Canon bashers here don't rant in this thread cause Canon is selling the same hardware for double the price. As I always say, if you can't afford it, don't buy it. Just because you can't afford it doesn't mean you should rant about it - if you're so pissed go invent one yourself and I dare you to sell it at the price you're thinking of.
