ASP-C Canon body advancement - stuck/abandoned ?
« on: April 10, 2013, 05:43:42 AM »
I am very confused - as I see that canon has been re-packaging the 550d for the past few years ? Call it a 60d, call it a 650d, call it a 7d, call it a 700d ? Why are we not seeing a significant jump in asp-c sensors and performance?

All the other companies Nikon and the like - seem to be leaping ahead ?

Did canon get stuck or something ?

Ahhh, good to know that you're one of those people who think the sensor is the sum total of a camera.  I bet that DxOMark T-shirt looks great on you!  ::)

I understand there are many other important components to a body - but I still dont see any great "leap" from a say 550d to the 60d ?

Do you see any great leap in sensor from the Nikon D3200 to the D7100?  Oh wait ... I forgot the D5200 ;D.

Yeah, you're right.  The pentaprism vs. pentamirror VF, ~40% faster frame rate, much better AF (9 crosses with a dual cross vs. only one cross), one stop faster max shutter speed, bigger battery for more than double the number of shots on a charge, better build with some weather sealing, better ergonomics (top LCD, etc.), all that's irrelevant.

I understand there are many other important components to a body......I still dont see any great "leap"
Since you understand there are other important components to a body beside the sensor, and you still don't see a difference between the 550D and the 60D, what 'leap' are you expecting? It's one level up...you expect Ferrari power and handling if you get the Accord instead of the Civic?

Oh, I get it...you must one of those people who expects a 1-series body for $1000.  That Entitlement T-shirt must look even better than the DxOMark T-shirt!  ::)

Sorry, but I really don't see the point of your post.

And on top of that: the OP is factual untrue. The 7d (2009) was released before the 550d (2010). Therefore the 7d can hardly be a repacked 550d ...
