Canon is forcing people who want pro/semipro camera to upgrade to the more expensive 7D. Meanwhile ...
It's just embarrassing...
Canon is forcing people to upgrade to a Nikon D7000.
Canon is making many poor choices in the products that they develop. Making a 70-300 L that no-one asked for, but not making a 50 f1.4, that has needed replacement for a long time, that people have been wanting for.
I've used Canon for a long time, and have three bodies. But I'm switching to Nikon. As good as the D7000 is, I can hardly wait to see the D300s replacement and the D700 replacement. This year Nikon has been releasing some awesome lenses, like the 24 f1.4 and the NEW 35 f1.4, plus the supersharp 16-35 f4. Lenses I need, but Canon just keeps on making expensive Big Whites that I rarely use (I've rented 400mm lenses three time in the last 5 years).
Always use the right tool for the job, and Canon has stopped being the right tool. YMMV
