Canon General / Re: Odds & Ends
« on: June 10, 2011, 03:02:21 PM »
My guess is that the 7D will be next year's big upgrade product, mostly because at the moment it's still holding its weight, and maybe more importantly its user base does not yet feel it's getting long in the tooth. The 5D and 1Ds on the other hand do and from a marketing point of view that's the time to replace them. In my opinion, barring actual development issues, they will probably be released not too far apart from each other with the 1Ds being first. Canon hopefully learned from their mistake and will differentiate the cameras enough for the 5D not to cannibalize its big brother. My hope is that they'll do this by bumping the hell out of the 1Ds and not by holding the 5D back.

EOS Bodies / Re: Different camera numbers internationally - why?

The trademark explanation seems very plausible although disputes over the use of letters and numbers have reached the courts before. A few examples that come to my currently alcohol induced fuzzy memory are Nissan suing BMW over the letter "Z" and Audi for the letter "Q". More recently Ford got their collective panties in a bunch and threatened Ferrari for naming their latest F1 race car, "F150".
