This is incredibly disappointing. I've been looking forward to an IS 50mm being released. Even if the new STM has improved optics (which is not guaranteed).

Also should I maybe consider some sort of bracket that attaches to hotshoe or something to place the flash slightly off to the side of the camera? Would that help the quality of the light at all? Or maybe (less ideally) a cord from camera to flash to hold it off center? But that would then disable TTL metering with the flash right?
The question is can pros and serious enthusiasts provide sufficient market for the level of development we have come to expect? It used to be the pro bodies were updated on a ten year cycle and lenses even longer. We are likely headed in that direction again.I guess that explains why the 7D Mark II took 5 years before it got updated. Most folks thought it'll follow a 3 year cycle.
Thanks for your interest, and advice.
Film Cameras I know, Digital, basically nothing helpful.
She has an inherited OM-10 (mint condition), and uses my Pentax 645 (non-mint) from time to time. A friend of her's has a powershot sx40, and she is really liking the way it fits into her hand. Thats why I mentioned the sx60.
From what I have seen here, the 5D3 is 'best in breed ', and the 70D and SL1 seem to be well respected. But it still comes back to the $'s.
I really want to help her as much as I can, she has that 'X-factor' natural ability. Pains me to admit it, but she can out-shoot me. She does awesome Street Candids, something I have never mastered.
Maybe the T3/T5 is the better option, for now.
So nobody has faith in the PowerShot series ?
Thanks again for the opinions, etc.
......The T5/T3i would be a step backwards from her film camera....And an SX60 is not a bigger step back?
What is she currently shooting? I'm prepared to be impressed.
"This is bold prediction, but it’s clear to me that over the next several years, the standalone still camera will disappear from the hands of everyone – with the exception of a few high end professionals."
I'm more than satisfied with my MP-E 65.
Think I'd rather Canon looked at a mark II of the MT-24EX.
Registered an account on this forum just to agree with you 100% -the current Mt-24EX is in desperate need of a refresh!
I think 'desperate' is a tad reaching. I'd love to read your proposed list of updates and fixes to the flash.
The answers are correct from the camera perspective they are the same, the N just last longer. On chargers it more complicated you need a new charger to charge the LP E6N, which will also charge the older batteries. I have a 7D mark II, which works fine with all the batteries. Its simply about how frequently you need change batteries
I found that my non canon LP-E6 batteries became damaged and unchargeable after switching charger. Both worked fine up until the moment the EP-6N charger broke them. They are dot photo. I imagine its the higher charging rate from the charger and brand as opposed to higher spec originals, but had to replace them with genuine canon LP-E6N's replacements as the after market hasn't caught up yet.
Sorry - still can't support the Chinese ripping off of technology.
It just baffles me how it can be so widely supported in camera gear, yet so controversial in many other aspects of goods...
