Canon is listening to customers, they're just not listening to the vocal minority ???

+1

The thing is, the people on the forum are not, generally speaking, Canon's major target audience.

Why do I feel they should be?  :o

One notable flaw these Nikon D3xxx and 5xxx bodies have - I assume this one does too - is that the cameras lack focus motors; so a fair number of Nikon lenses are manual-focus only on these cameras.  If I were interested in a Nikon crop-sensor DSLR (I'm not, really; having been seduced by FF it's hard to go back) that would rule them out - though I dare say most people don't care.  It will be interesting to see what they come up with for a successor to the D7000, which doesn't have that flaw.

wow that will kill the rebel sales, sounds like a very nice dslr, especially for video with 1080/60
People have been making comments like this for many years now.  The vast majority of Rebel buyers walk into Best Buy or other big box store and go for the cheapest camera that looks professional. 95% of them have no clue as to what the specifications mean.
Canon has been pulling away from Nikon in DSLR sales.
Its kinda like the Sony Betamax versus VHS.  Salesmanship and lower price trumps technical capability every time. 
Canon will drop another new model with a couple of minor new features next Spring, and people will rush to buy it because its the latest model.

Nikon coming up with a better specced product and a great price is always a good thing for Canon users (in about 6-12 months   :)  )

That's becoming less and less relevant these days. Just about every major focal length is covered by an AF-S lens that doesn't require an in-body motor, and the customer in the market for one of these cameras wouldn't consider old lenses that are no longer widely available anyway. The only gaping hole I see in the current lens lineup is a cheap full-frame 35mm; the fantastic 35/1.8G crop lens makes me jealous whenever I use my girlfriend's D5100.

I must sayin was impressed seriously with the 5d3, the only thing I didn't like because the 5d2 was better was IQ.. people needed to really try to say the 5d3 had better IQ! But it has marginal better color, and less sharp, same res, same noise under 1600 and less DR. I'mpI'm pretty sure everybody expected and iq upgrade like the one from 5dc to 5d2...

Granted that the improvement in IQ of the 5D2 over the 5DC was greater than between the 5D3 and 5D2, it still wasn't that dramatic. According the DxO, the 5D2 has 0.8 extra stop of DR, and 0.8 additional bits of color depth. Even DxO states that  "differences below 1 bit are barely noticeable." That said, there was a huge jump in resolution between the 5DC and MK2, but not many people were saying they needed more resolution out of the MK3.

Sensors aside, IMHO the improvement in the overall camera is much greater between the 5D3 and 5D2 than it is between the 5D2 and 5DC. Compared to the 5DC, the 5D2 was basically a slightly improved sensor in the same POS body with the same POS ergonomics, POS build quality, and POS AF system. Yeah, I wouldn't mind an extra stop or two of DR, but the 5D3 is such a huge improvement - as on overall package - over the 5D2 that I'm a happy camper. Its world-class AF system and very respectable burst rate combined with its low-light performance make it so much easier for me to make money with it ;D

Or years! I am willing to wait. Willing to be a vulture. So what do you wanna do?

That's because Canon was doing right and has bigger brand name.  However, I can tell you it's changing.  50 people in my office and about 10 DSLR camera users.  2 were Nikon users and 8 were Canon users in the past few years.  This year one switched to Nikon and another one is going to get D600 soon.  I know losing two users for Canon is not a big thing.  However, for me that's 25% market share losing for Canon and 100% market share gaining for Nikon.
I have to point out one important thing.  The one switched to Nikon and the one is going to switch Nikon have no any EF mount lens.  That's why they can switch to Nikon easily.  Canon must be happy for that many people have EF lenses that makes them stay with Canon.

Two people in my office just bought 5DIII's.  Since only one person in your office has actually switched, Canon is up by a net of one user and a few more yen as well.  These small sample sizes are so informativeā€¦.   ::)
