I am not satisfied by the rate of Canon's sensor improvement. The way I see it the 70D II was a year late. The 7D II is two years late. A high MP camera is 3 years late.
Every year my expectations for what a camera should do increase. And every year Canon falls further and further behind.
Couldn't have said it better. Me already considers a Sony 7s as well :-((((
The baby steps someone already mentioned here in comparison to others are really easily ignored. I guess the next 1Dx will give:
* - 120 all cross points AF
* - 3 double crossed in the center
* - A third generation of DUAL AF
* - finally 400k ISO
* - probably 4K @ 30 FPS just because it's their flagship DSLR
* - probably 28 MP or 24... who knows... :-(
* - Dual 6+ DIGICs + could be with another 5+ regular for focusing...
Make some shortened/crippled version of the above. and just swap the MPs for some 40 (and above) MPs. Put all that in another FASHION/STUDIO oriented body. And there you go... Again flagship divided in two bodies... :-(
Now having in mind that NIKON is ALSO falling down with no other but the same baby steps recently. I don't expect anything big.
What both can do is to come out with some MF body in 1 or 2 years.
Actually what I really believe is that the new CANON rumored mount is either:
1/ improved EF for video AF servo
2/ MF mount!!!
I am pretty sure since in the last year all the time there are rumors about a big MP, that it should come before September 2015. However is this good enough among such strong competition?
Now since in high PRO we have even most probably SONY any time soon (they are the only one missing from the whole MF DSLR story, aside from NIKON and CANON). Having in mind that they are the FIRST VENDOR of MF CMOS - they sold it quite well to almost everyone pushing aside CANON and NIKON from the leadership.
And I know that John (Jrista) will explain how they are the current leaders we have to face the fact that it is only due to the totaly amatuer segment of the market.
And as long as it is profitable their status quo would be eminent. However here comes the MILC age.... what then?
Here it is: THE CAT IS OUT!
According to latest rumors Canon is expected to announce a High Resolution DSLR in October 2015, so there are two possibility
#1. Canon may also do a development announcement of new product in October or
#2. If a new product is announced then it won’t ship for a long while, however Canon fans are now tired of waiting for Canon Megapixel Monster and as per unconfirmed reports a huge number of Canon crowed already moved to purchase Sony A7R and Nikon D8XX series….Stay with us more coming
This pathetic whining is really getting boring..Yep and your comments aren't any fun either ;-)
I am awaiting a NEW body that deserves my money aimed for an upgrade
