Ok first off, no one promised you a 70D today, so your negative feelings have nothing to do with Canon and everything to do with your expectations.

if you want to shoot video on a large-sensor camera, you have to learn how to focus manually.  The motion picture industry has been doing it this way since it's inception and continues to do so.  We are very far away from having AF for video on a DSLR, with as many lenses as there are it would be extremely difficult to make them all work perfectly.  I mean do you really want to trust a camera to pull focus for you at the right time and to the right place?  Instead of complaining about technology that probably isn't available just make do with what you have. 

Everyone else making videos with DSLR's and any other cinema camera do it this way, why can't you?  If you think the lack of this feature is what's holding you back from making great videos then you should go ahead and find a different gig.

And about switching to Nikon, I don't think switching is going to make the slightest bit of difference.  It seems like you want to blame the gear, a feature (or missing feature), and that could go on forever.  So like I said, try and make do with what you have, plenty of other people have made great stuff with the same gear.

Is this another troll?  ???

Really - you sign up to to post that you are saying goodbye?

Think you need to get a life or a perspective - oh and good luck with the Nikon crowd. I followed that forum for a while out of interest - damn they're savage, if their lenses were as sharp as some of the comments i've read on that forum - well, Canon would be out of business  ;D

And just to revise your thoughts on shooting video - a media college in the UK uses 60D's to teach students with, because they're considerably less expensive than 'pro' gear but still functional for teaching how to shoot video correctly.

Waiting 8 years, bailing for a couple of weeks?  Sounds a bit impulsive to me.  What else is behind this.

I'm just frustated and i want canon to know!
I mean i love the 60d, but no real video af. I want a seald dslr
with a big viewfinder -and a good video af. Maybe even a gps since i do make most of my photos outdoor on many different locations...again, frustrated.
Yes, that'll show them!  After being ten years in the #1 spot globally, you saying goodbye to Canon is surely going to rock their boat!

So, are you selling all your old gear and lenses?  Someone here may be interested...

umm... you predict what will be changed in canon 70d in the last 8 years?  smart though... and much more smarter when switching to nikon  8)

meh... i am okae with what i am having now and will not switch to nikon.  anyways, i bet that if you want to sell your canon gears, put them on here... people are willing to buy it back from you as long as called prices make sense to them...  that would help me getting more budget to acquire new nikon gear...

You have to make them feel, by selling your now useless gear for really really cheap for example.
If that ain't the most awesome way to tell them the truth then I don't know what would be...

...well, maybe you could send your lenses to Canon to get them refurbished just before selling them for really really cheap. That'd be totally "in your face".

On one hand, I actually agree that "making waves" on the internet can change the course of big business in some cases. If the whole world universally asks for one thing, sometimes the message can get through and encourage businesses to do something that they would not have otherwise done.

The problem here is that the message is something that Canon already knows, and is undoubtedly already planning on fulfilling. The prevailing issue is one of time, "right now" vs. "later". No amount of begging can make Canon move it's release schedule up, that's like asking a Chef to hurry up and serve you a meal before it's cooked, they won't do it. No matter how much you say you want a soggy mess the Chef is not going to sell you an incomplete product just so you can taste it and then turn around and complain that the meal isn't finished.

So funny, someone takes the time to join a Canon forum to say he is going to buy a Nikon. I wonder which rumoured Nikon he wants to buy, because of course none of the existing line up will be good enough!

Yawn.....
