Yeah, but I don't think so... If take a 7D going FF you have a 5D (or even more). And I wouldn't call a 7D "entry level" at the current pricing.
I can't understand why canon is spreading the line so much. If I were Canon I would reduce the number of product lines instead of increasing it.
Indeed! There's definitly missing a cheaper FF camera, but imo there is not that much room for a new line.
I dont understand why they can't take the 60D as we have it today and stick the FF sensor of the 5D2 in there.
That could make the xxD series the entry FF cameras and differentiate them from the xxxD line better.
They really need to either drop or merge a few lines so they can refine their products to particular markets more.
1D m4 (1D + 1Ds lines merged full frame PRO photo camera)
5D m3 (high end video rich DSLR)
7D (high end APS-c line)
60D m2 (budget FF line)
600D (basic APS-c line)
1100D (beginners DSLR line)
That way the xD series are the pro cameras, the xxD are the semi pros or advanced amateurs, xxxD is where the money is with the bulk of retail sales and hobbyists, xxxxD my first DSLR people (also in funky colours to sell to younger generations).
