I think Canon has been quite conservative lately and the criticism is not entirely of base. The dynamic range conversation is stupid, but I acknowledge Canon lags behind in that department.
I'm a little annoyed at the number of bodies they put the 18mp sensor in, t2i, t3i, t4i, t5i, t5, sl1, 60d, 7d, and the mirror less... seriously... if you do portrait or landscape, there hasn't been a rebel worth upgrading to because it is all the same camera... unless you rely on auto focus.
Other than a few video/live view break through, it is hard to say they are revolutionizing the industry... also, after today I will have 4k video in my phone, but not in my $3000 slr. I don't want Canon handicapping gear because it will eat into the sales of other high end gear.
Having said all that, I'm more than happy with my 5d mkiii. I love the 600ex rt system, and their lenses are a work of art... so I'm happy... though I understand why others might not be.
