Congrats! It's great to see progress, but I don't have the nerve to risk my 5DIII until there's at least a beta version, and the boot flag can be reset.

There wouldn't be such a drop in lens shipments if some of they lenses didn't cost as much as a car. Sorry, but $12k for the 200-400 is way out of my budget at this time. Same with Canon "adjusting their prices to match the market" So the 400 just became history unless I pick one up used.
Exactly. Can we get something that's more than $300 but less than $10,000?
What happened is that the size/weight issue of DSLRs is overrated.
Cameras just can't go more portable than cell phones.
And mirrorless is the wrong solution to the problem of DSLRs being too large and heavy. It turns out that users of DSLRs do not mind DSLRs being large and heavy, as long as there is a mature lens system, and the manufacturer being able to reduce the weight just a little bit.
Fimmakers shoot with film cameras, videographers shoot with video cameras. The C100 is a video camera, not a film camera.
Reuters Full Focus best of 2013 was even more lopsided to Canon: A collection of the years's best 93 pictures.
80% of the pictures within the collection were taken with Canon cameras. The Canon 5D Mk3 and the Canon 1DX were the most popular each with 27 photos in the top 93. (29% each, 58% together) The Canon 1DMkIV had 11. What totally blew me away was that Nikon as a camera was only used for 11 pictures in the collection of the top 93.
Here is the full list by camera manufacturer and model:
1. Canon 5D Mark III 27 pictures
2. Canon EOS 1DX 27 pictures
3. Canon EOS 1D Mark IV 11 pictures.
4. Canon 5D Mark II 7 pictures
5. Canon EOS 1D Mark IIII 3 pictures
6. Camera with two photos in the collection:
a. Canon 7D
b. Nikon D3s
c. Nikon D4
d. Nikon D300S
e. Nikon D3
7 . Cameras with one photo in the collection:
Canon EOS 1D Mark II.
Canon EOS 1D Mark II N
Canon EOS rebel T3
GoPro Hero II
Thanks for sharing. The image with the mother giving birth is the one that will stay with me for days.
I don't care much which camera model they are using. What's interesting is the dominant number of images shot with a 70-200 and 16-35. I expected the 70-200 but I was surprised with how many images there are either shot with 16-35 or 24mm prime. If the 16-35 lens is popular with press photographers as well as landscape photographer one would think that a 14-24 lens would be one of Canon's top priorities. Or am I looking at it the wrong way, is it because it's so popular that they don't think it needs a replacement?
Interesting ... people are getting excited over stats from less than 60 camera users and coming to the conclusion that one camera is better than an another?
