OK, how do things work at Canon?
By all accounts, Canon is a well managed corporation with a very good understanding of their market.
The whole idea of splitting the 5D into separate stills and video models is just silly.
It's a wet dream from someone who bought a 5DII instead of a RED - and quickly realized the shortcomings of a DSLR for film/video.
If Canon is to ever target the RED market, they will have a proper RED competitor, not a 5DII clone.
The catch is, this will not be a $2,500 model as the wet-dreamer hopes. Try $10,000 or maybe even $20,000.
Such a model will also come from the video division and will have an adapter for EF lenses.
That's how things work at well managed corporations with a very good understanding of their market.
