I'm very happy with my 1D X - I'd rather Canon deliver something really solid in a year then rush something sooner
Do you mean, don't follow Nikon's lead to release new bodies/lenses with only incremental improvements
Advantage of Nikon's approach is you get more upgrades ($ for Nikon, cost for the photographer) but they spend more $ on small improvements.
Glad Canon waits until something big can be introduce and then makes sure it is solid. I think that they learned a lesson from the problems (real or imaginary) with AF on the 1D M3.
