I really doubt Canon won't take the advantage of a firmware update to try to market it as an AF improvement and then leave it as an unquantifiable statement about improved AF.
It is funny how many people knew this would be a stinker before it saw the inside of a showroom. 1st gen is not an excuse - I would have fired the people who let a subpar product see light of day. We are too kind to these people and show way too much loyalty.
I have been on the sidelines with my Rebel Xsi because I am a casual photographer and don't need this equipment to earn my living. I will continue to wait one more cycle to see if Canon can fix AF issues with the Rebel, M series or the 6D and not keep making silly mistakes (one point AF on 6D) - if the next product does not deliver then I guess Sony or Nikon will be getting my money.
Windows Vista? (contrast win7pro)
Pretty much any 1st gen system or serious overhaul to a previous system.
All had serious flaws that is caused by 1st gen syndrome, compare 2nd gen products to these and its obvious of they're flaws. I never adopt 1st gen products.
Would you consider Sony RX1 is 1st gen of FF in compact body? Took over 1k photos with RX1, I didn't see any issues yet? including AF speed
You said "I never adopt 1st gen products", I thought you had 5D C before 5D III? and what about your all time fav 135L?
Well yes. DPreview even agrees the RX1 has its flaws and so have other indie reviews. Like the the first IPhone, its ludicrously over priced.
I never adopted the 5Dc at release, I bought it well into the mk2 era. The 135L had its optical base in the FD 135mm, and improved on that design. Great product.
Also I own a d30 but why does that matter?
