18MP again?. Boring.

I know!

Back in the day, every year was one 35mm camera after another.

BUT when that 37mm camera came out -- WOOOO excitement beyond belief!

I like my 7D, and it is a way better camera than I am a photographer. Yes, it gets noisy by ISO 1600 and especially beyond that, but it is still an excellent camera.

I will get the 5D3 if it ever becomes available before I die. But that doesn't make the 7D a bad camera, especially given that it's 2.5 years old. In that context, it's excellent.

The 7D is not a bad camera.  I  don't like the nature of the images it takes.

My 40D was "ok" but first started a trend that carried into my 50D and then the 7D. 

The main difference across these generations was more pixels, same space.

To me, pixel size impacts the quality of the image generated.

1st one to offer a "D4 junior", or "1DX junior"  gets my money.

...Honestly I don't see how they could be THAT out of touch, they have to know that D700 successor would solve the missing MP and video issues and that they can't just sit around and give us some minor little increment.

Canon has a history of not producing cameras that will 'eat their lunch'. they let others do that because, so far and until recently,  others have only been nibbling.

Which makes it a company culture almost.

...Hopefully there really is not some deeper reason behind the President of Canon just having resigned...

Canon is not a camera company.  don't anyone forget.   they are a flipping huge conglomerate with many markets to satisfy and a whole lot of internal politics as well.

Canon can do a $2000 FF DSLR if they want to

Canon is already SELLING a sub-$2000 FF DSLR. The 5D Mark II is available NEW for CAD$1999:

Future Shop sold a few @ 1850, I do not recall the details, check red flag deals forums for scanned invoices.

why the heartburn over file sizes, folks?

I gotta agree with this, all you people who want a slower car go buy a slower car, but stop telling the manufacturer not to make fast cars, because some of us have races to win....

Since we're going with silly analogies --

When your primary goal is to make the fastest car, you make tradeoffs for that car - safety.  cargo capacity, passenger capacity; affordability; comfort

I don't have a race to win, but I do want consistent, quality, focused images that don't need a main frame to process or fiber optics to get images out of the camera.

TODAY. Right Now.  the % of people NEEDING (life depends on it) 35+ megapixel images is a corner case.  if you want one, then you are a part of that corner.  it just so happens its is easy for Canon to address the needs of this corner case and THEN , improve on DR, noise characteristics (note: NOT quantity), improving ISO quality over entire range.

some are asking Canon to slow down the drive for megapixel supremacy  and put the SAME energy into the other aspects of exposure that a camera creates
