if the 5D3 were capable of 75 megapixels I would soon start choosing my resolution based on my anticipated use for the photo.

Thus, having 75 megapixels available would provide another variable that I could control, just as I control WB, f-stop and shutter speed.


Agree. A dedicated on-body control for MP would be neat.

Every time a camera co. raises the game on pixel count, we get the same boring whining about PC speed and storage. So old, so lame....

Mirrorless with 4Mp tilting EVF and better-than-III AF and near-silent shooting

Focus peaking

Same size as 6D

Darn, my Canon film camera predates EOS -- I don't qualify.  :'(

I don't even have a 5D, but I already know my answer to this one. NOTHING would make me upgrade, because I keep my bodies for 2 generations between upgrades.

I consider it absurd to be desperately chasing the next model when I already have the current model.

Notice they say "due to current market conditions". This can mean a lot of things, but to a large company like Canon just having an item out for support and sales means it costs money - a lot of it. The service centers have to be trained and keep parts inventory - just for starters. This costs $$.

My guess is they see NA sales low enough that it's not worth supporting, they mostly just sold them to the Photo sites and rental places. Perhaps this is why they dumped stocks in NA.

Now with the however many new EOS-M's running in the wild in NA it might be a different story - in a year! Big companies run slowly.

How can volumes be uneconomical for USA when volumes are sufficient for Canada and Australia?

Is there a speed booster that brings an EF lens (not EF-S) back to full circle on a canon crop body? I might be interested in such an item if optics are good.

I find it interesting that this lens being made specifically for the M is still marketed with a FF focal length.  This lens cant be used on any other camera so why did they decide to spec 22mm f/2?  This is not really what you get with the camera in use.

Sounds like maybe grounds for a class action law suit.  I got 100 bucks back from John Deere because they underspec'd the engine on my lawn tractor!

What *are* you talking about? It is a lens with a 22mm focal length, and a maximum aperture of f/2. They couldn't be more honest and accurate.

B&H photo lists the 7d for $1299 after a $200 instant savings. ...i am wondering how many might consider the 7d over the 70d if there is not much difference in price.

I asked this question in reply #85. Love my 7D

If a discounted 7D is not much more expensive than the new 70D, which would you choose?

I'd much rather have AMFA than a magnesium body. I haven't heard of anyone having a problem with the body on the 60D- not sure why people are so insistent on that as a feature.

The heft and feel of the 7D body is just ... wonderful. You need to live with one to appreciate it.

BUT, I agree with you, MA over MAG.  ;D

The only thing it is lacking is weather sealing and copy variance.

That's code for quality control:-\

100D for performance, M for mini-ness and cheap. Simple choice.  ::)
