What Canon is doing is WRONG!
800D, 77D, SL2, 85mm IS, making the stuff that is perfect for selling to the lesser informed people.
Those 77D/M5 are price tagged like the 80D, yet miss all the stuff that really matters, 2nd sync curtain, shutter speed up to 8000's, missing C modes on the 77D. I bet the new SL2 will have electronic shutter curtains as well.
A new 1400D with Digi 7 processor for noice cleaning is the only upgrade that should be done in the entry section.
Now Nikon wants to focus at the higher end, Canon thinks they have the chance throwing up all new entry bodys on the market.
But in the long haul, canon is way better of designing an M model with dual card slots, 1/8000S shutter speed, no compromises on sync speed, integrating the Lp 6N batteries in an Eos M model,
Spending resources in Eos M lenses,
Spending resources on a new 7Dm3,
Spending resources on developing a Mirrorless Full frame,
Spending resources in a new G5X with better raw buffer and DPAF that can compete vs Fuji x100 and Sony RX100,
What the point of a 85MM IS?, stabilization will be obsolete within 2-5 years when ISO performance will improve, (something that the D500 and A6500 now have).
I could not care less about new portraiture L lenses, what ever Canon/Nikon/Fuji/Sony/Pentax/Sigma makes, it gets beaten by Zeiss lenses. Canon knows that for sure, hence the few lens updates.
Every camera company now has a 2000$ crop body that is awesome, now it is canons turn!
There is plenty enough in the 1DXm2 that could migrate to a new 7Dm3, buffer, fps, new AF system, video stabilization, etc...
But I guess there is still a lot of $$$ in it to sell crap to the lesser informed people in Asia.
1st statement and 2nd paragraph are your own subjective opinion.
Nikon is most likely leaving the entry level for the near future as it knows Canon has almost completely dominated that market. They will come back to the entry market when they have produced a matured high end pro ecosystem that can compete with Canon toe to toe. In the end, you still need entry bodies to introduce new buyers into your ecosystem. (Reason why Canon won the race atm.)
Regarding the M, you have misunderstood the intended methodology of the M series.
...... M lenses, you sure Canon is not spending resources?
...... 7D3, R&D is not a 6-month garage project. R&D takes years and I don't want a 7D3 with incremental improvements.
...... FF ML, you're not an occasional reader of CR for the past few months, aren't you?
...... G5X, why chose that specific camera as competitor of the Fuji or Sony? Why not the G1X?
...... 85mm IS, seriously? IS will be irrelevant? You make me question who is the less informed one.
Canon shouldn't make any new L lenses? Comparing Canon/Sigma/Nikon/Sony to ZEISS? Seriously? Again?
Hey, I rather have newer features in my new 7D3 than just adopting those from the 1DX2.
Yes, Canon will earn a lot from the rebels and XXDs, but they are not crap, and people in Asia are not less informed. Fyi, almost all camera brands are in Asia ffs. And saying the rebels are crap is like admitting that you are an excrement from a canine compared to the best photographers in the world.
