But don't be too surprised if your non camera geek (NCG) friends and potential muggers are not aware white means expensive. (I think of mine as cream colored) In my experience most NCGs will be impressed with big lenses, but the white will not be a factor, or will just confuse them.
They might not be aware that white means expensive, but they would probably be aware that big is expensive.
This article was obviously written by an ignoramus (word of the day)
Quotecanon said it will not abandon the APS-H sensor format.
I'd like to see that statement. All I am aware of are some vague statements about keeping their options open and similar non-denial denials.
Here's the thing: Canon only made one model with APS-H. Canon never spent a penny on designing a single lens for APS-H. No other manufacturer offers APS-H.
The one thing Canon was very clear about was that the 1Dx would replace both the 1D and 1Ds. The 1D was their newest high-end body at the time and they had no reason to announce it's demise if they had any thought of retaining the format. But they made a conscious choice to declare the 1Dx as the replacement for both bodies.
APS-H is the Betamax of sensors. The technology may be superior, but the market didn't support it.
I think Canon was only too glad to come up with an excuse to abandon it. And, of course, they aren't going to alienate APS-H fans by an outright declaration that it's dead and they probably are truly keeping their options open. I would put the chances of a new APS-H camera just slightly greater than the chance of finding Bigfoot riding a unicorn.
