Now that would be awesome.

I'm not certain I can agree that the EOS system is stronger because of Canon's decision to orphan all their previous owners. Since they felt the need to start with a (mostly) clean slate, they could have chosen the flange distance such that a high quality adapter for the FD mount lenses would have been reasonable (and profitable). They took a calculated risk that they wouldn't drive all their customers to Nikon (and remember they did hedge their bet by make a very special adapter for those few customers who had invested in the really expensive telephoto lenses), and it paid off.
They tested the waters (unsuccessfully) with their autofocus FD lenses, analyzed the market trajectory, made some strategic decisions, and were eventually proven to have chosen correctly.
But we'll never know what might have been if they had made the decision to make their new design adaptable to their old lenses. Perhaps they might have been even stronger. (although then Ed Mika wouldn't be in business)
But given their demonstrated lack of loyalty to the installed base, one has to wonder what 10 years will bring.

Are you saying there's no difference between HDMI 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4? 1.3 has been around since 2005 or 2006.
From what I can tell, the only way to watch 4k video content in the home, is via Sony's pre-loaded, dedicated hard drive, on their 4k sets. Sharp and Samsung have something similar, but Sony owns the rights to a lot of movies, so their drive comes with like 20 movies on it. Whether or not the majority of those movies was remastered at the 4k resolution, rather than just upsampled to it, I can't say. Whether or not I would want to watch any of those 20 movies more than twice, I can say...the answer is NO.
Either way, I can agree that unless there starts being a lot of 4k content, then TV's with that resolution will not sell well.
I don't even know why I'm asking this here, but we will see if anyone knows the answer.
Do you really need a 4K TV to view 4K?
I mean, I view a lot of online stuff, and my monitor's resolution is only 1280X1024.
We all know the difference between 480p and 1080p, and you can see the difference even between 720p and 1080p. And, this is all through youtube. Anyway, I've been watching plenty of 2.5K videos on vimeo... the video is so pristine... and thats on my 1280X1024 monitor...
Similarly, there is a huge difference between a blu-ray movie that is 1080p and a dvd movie that is 1080p.
You must not be watching closely enough
Not all of the lenses are a good deal (like some of the low end lenses, kit lenses, etc), but there are some incredible deals on L glass if you can catch them in stock during a 15-20% off sale.
I purchased a refurb lens from Canon on 11/12 with the 125 back. That lens just went on 15% sale...The long and short of it is that I would have saved about $150 if I had waited for this sale to purchase it.
These guys are LIARS. Ordered this camera, shipped quickly, and then I was told that I MUST be home to sign for the delivery… and they do not deliver on Saturday of course. For years, I have NO problem picking up my deliveries at UPS. I show up with a Driver's License and it's all set.
They put all kinds of restrictions on the delivery… could not have it delivered to a neighbor's house. Could not have it held at UPS for pickup. I HAVE to be home and sign personally.
I bought the A03 version a few month back and I love it! It has a bit of edge bleed in a perfectly black screen, but in normal use is awesome. If you calibrate it and use a 10-bit pipeline, the colors are amazing.
