I don't know who was expecting these cameras, but I was not. I was and am hoping that they will be released soon.
However, if these camera don't bring anything significant in terms of low noise at high ISO and dynamic range, I am not going to pay 3000 USD for a body that is just another iteration (having a mere 1.3 stops less noise, in RAW, is not going to cut it).
I don't need megapixels, I don't need 50 focus points, or tank-like build, but I do need the flexibility to do photography in the most demanding natural lighting conditions (= not controlled), which means autofocus speed and accuracy, low noise at high ISO (preferably in low light), banding free noise, high dynamic range, proper auto ISO, limit intervals for autoexposure settings, exposing to the right (instead of for neutral gray, so I can actually benefit from all that tonal range), dual storage (for reliability), ... you know, the things that allow me to take photos instead of changing settings to correct the exposure for the existing lighting conditions, and get the best technical quality possible in all natural lighting conditions.
I don't pay thousands of dollars to take lucky shots, I pay that to consistently take good shots.
So I prefer they take the time to make the cameras worth the money. For this i will wait till next year, spring (or summer for Sony's full frame).
