(playing a bit of devil's advocate to show what these implicit "Canon promises" are about)
i guess that was a reply to my post?
so you'd be fine if Canon stopped selling any cameras at all, new or old models?
well i would be suprised at least.. as suprised as when we had no sunrise tomorrow.
or maybe you bought your lenses under the implicit promise that Canon would continue to sell bodies with which you can use them, and that those bodies would be close to the best that other makers are offering at any given time?
well i take that serious the day canon makes such an announcement or the lenses i have will not work any longer.
as long as amateur photographer have no better things to do then being upset about some RUMORS are not being true.... yawn.
DSLR cameras are so good these days. print A3 and you will hardy see a difference to a 30000$ hasselblad.
compacts.. i can understand that people want better IQ in compact cameras.
their tiny sensors really suck.
but what do you expect from a new DSLR?
more features and gimmicks.. sure!
the only features i really miss in current canon DSLR cameras are a build in radio trigger for flash (and speedlite models triggered by radio signals) and GPS
pocket wizards are fine but a build-in full ETTL radio trigger is better.
better image quality?
mhm... better dynamic range would be good but i donÂ´t expect a huge improvement in IQ.
i do understand that people are eager to see new camera models.
but some behave as if they need a new camera to make great pictures.
i also wonder how many, who complain that there is no new 1 series camera yet, will buy a 5000-7000$ camera in the end.
pros talking about their photos 80% of the time.. amateurs talking about gear 80% of the time.
so if you want to improve your photographic skills... take photos.
