Perhaps because they offer similar performance and the excitement of 4 years of patience made some sour.
I understand that. But it is better than the mkii in MP, horizontal banding, High iso noise quality/structure. They obviously didn't focus on the sensor as much as they did the other features of the camera. Every other aspect of the camera is better and much improved over the mkii which made it worth the upgrade. Esp. for the ones who needed those upgrades.
Canon will do the minimum amount of R&D into a new camera that's needed for customers to buy it. No more, and some times alot less.
Its funny because nikon did the opposite, Don't change much on the d700 but add a new sensor. Bam, d800.
I will agree with all of that. Is there any company nowadays that will produce something great and give their all?
And the D700 to D800 = 5D to 5DmkII?
