So it's somehow wrong to convince buyers to spend more money for more features? Wrong to offer a diverse product line with products at different price levels? Then we photographers should follow the same rules: never offer clients a way to spend more to get more. Never offer any extra product for any extra money. Offer just one product at one price, one size fits all? Or, offer various products but all at the same price, no matter what it costs to make and service them? In what galaxy does business work that way?
well you think like the typical brainwashed consumer slave and i can´t blame you for that.
but maybe you should think again before wasting so much time asking rhetorical questions.
i think it´s pretty clear why AFMA should be in any camera.
i don´t want all the 1D X features in all the cheaper bodys.
AFMA fixes a FLAW.... i could also ask for body and lenses that focus correct from the start.
It's pretty clear that AFMA should be in your camera. It isn't clear that it should be in this camera. Photographers don't all have the same needs as you.
This cameras will focus correctly from the start for the vast majority of users, even without AFMA. The review on
indicates that the autofocus is "really good".
AFMA recognizes that autofocus isn't perfect for more demanding users in certain situations. It is a brilliant solution to customizing each individual camera to each individual lens. But Canon knows well that AFMA is also laborious to implement. The typical buyer of this camera will not know what it is and will not want to do it. There is such a thing as "feature bloat" where there are just too many unfamiliar settings on the menus, making a camera less attractive to many buyers.
No that shows that that one particular SL1 with that one lens happens to focus really well.
For most pairings it is constantly sending to Canon for adjustments.
