this is a good sign that the 7dII is coming right?

Good news for DxO users - they will have the profile for what looks like all or nearly all Canon bodies next month:
damn you guys just gave me GAS, here comes a 16-35mm F4
i like doing landscapes so far i have been using the 24-105mm will i like this lens? is the IQ going to be noticeably better?
I think if you're happy with 24mm, it won't. You'll only buy this lens if you want something wider than 24mm.
i just toss mine in the backpack i thought this is one of the reasons they are build with that magnesium alloy body. When i had the 550d then i was more careful that thing felt very weak all plastic.
Agree -- the 5D3 body will 95% likely be fine, but there are other features to consider. I've had a lot of lens caps fall off when I just throw it in a bag with other contents, once resulting in a scratched filter (thankfully not the lens' front element). Also, multipurpose bags like backpacks and messenger bags often carry 'other' cargo that can leave junk, crumbs, dirt, dust, etc. which can scratch an LCD or do a number on the grippy bits.
For me, I don't like loose items clawing at any part of the camera when it's in a bag, so I usually use the previously linked Tenba photo insert. I'm not arguing my way is better -- it's entirely personal preference.
However, when I'm in a hurry or if I need a mixed payload of camera + 'other' in the bag (clothes, work items, pens, etc.), I sometimes just wrap the 5D3 + lens with a winter hat and call it good. I've had zero issues with that thus far, but I do admit I baby the bag a bit more in that arrangement.
Wonder if we'll see a product advisory from Canon with the white rubber turning black...
Apple have thousands of patents awarded each year (the system in the US is different to Europe where it is harder to get a unique patent) but that still didnt stop the stock market marking Apple down recently. Sony also have thousands of patents every year likely as many as Canon.
Apple had less than 2,000 US patents issued in 2013, around 1,200 in 2012, and just over 800 in 2011. Apple has ~7700 patents total. Canon has averaged over 2,000 patents per year for the past 15 years (meaning they've had more patents granted in the past 4 years than Apple has had since the Steves founded the company). Canon has been in the top 5 worldwide for issued US patents each year for >20 years. In other words, they have a long history of innovation.
Apple is trading recently much closer to its 52-week high than to its 52-week low.
Regardless, the point is that you seem to be implying that Canon is not innovating, and that's simply not the case.
