Without mentioning anyone specific I just wanted to say that writing an essay requires good grammar, which also requires knowledge.  ;D  :P

@Ankorwat. - Please don't waste everybody's time by writing what everybody here already knows:  Nikon (Sony) sensors have more dynamic range right now. 

I don't think that old bit information is going to cause any Canon users reading this forum to jump ship.  Lets all go take some pictures and let this topic die!
Bodies:  6D, EOS-M
EF Lenses: 35mm f/2.0 IS, 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro, 135mm f/2.0L, 16-35mm f/4L IS, 24-70mm f/2.8L II, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II; EF-M Lenses: 22 f/2, 18-55
Speedlites: ST-E3-RT, 600EX-RT (x3)

One more before it dies. I am now convinced that I should buy a nikon sensor and install it on my 5dmkii. I can only imagine how much better the images will be. By the way, does anyone know how to do this? ;D

  But if Canon gave me all of that today, what would they sell me in a couple of years? 

Well, the flip side is: if they do not give you what you want, what would they sell you today? In my case, nothing. I did not upgrade because I was not excited enough.

Touche. 
That is the delicate balance Canon (and I suppose all manufacturers do this dance) has to juggle.  If the update is too great, everyone buys it but then the next model will have nothing to beat it with.  If the update is too small, there is something left for the next but Canon risks no one buying this one in numbers that are profitable.
