Then again, now that they're dropping the two anomaly SLRs (5DII and T3 as soon as the B is out), they only have one SLR in the whole range that isn't 18MP. That looks to me like a lack of creativity.Ehm, 5D3 and 6D? that's two if I count correctly? But, on the other hand I do agree that Canon needs more diversity in their lower end bodies. is it 8 or 9 bodies now with 18 mp? 7D, 60D, SL1, 700D, 650D, 600D, 550D, 1DX (yes it is 18mp, hehe)...did I miss anyone?
Not quite, as you're only considering resolution. If you've ever played with a RAW file from the 1DX in Lightroom, you'd quickly realize that the resolution doesn't matter at all with that camera.
No, resolution is exactly and specifically what I'm talking about. A "range" of cameras should have a range of resolutions, but Canon seems to think 18MP is the one-size-fits-all resolution. Seasoned photojournalists and complete newbies alike, everyone gets one resolution. Like Henry Ford: "Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it's black."
