90% isn't perfect.
Eh, polling is an inexact science. It's within the margin or error.   ;D

Nothing wrong with the gear only with me and my lack of skill!  :P

But yeah who doesn't want perfection? We all do but the difference it really makes is minimal.

What we can do now with our cameras compared to 15 - 20 years ago is phenomenal! Didn't even think I would have been able to afford a DSLR when I was in Uni but now they seem quite affordable and everyone has one! But what are they doing with them?? (Complaining??)

My only problem with Canon is their pricing.   :'(  I don't have that much problem with Nikon/Sony's superior sensor.  I find Canon's already acceptable (comparable) as against  the views of some pixel peepers, and of course I love Canon colors.  Even some of my friends with their "superior" Nikons are quite taken with Canon colors that most of them wants to shift to Canon.

Pixel peepers aside, I think most love Canon.

Canon USA thru CPS keeps the equipment exposing, and that's money in the bank. While my specific needs are unique and some new products pose challenges adapting them into my work flow, we muddle forward!

... if I should rate them: 85/100.

They make good things, some with the potencial to be improved but in general I use Canon cameras, lenses and accessories and will do so in the future. I didn't find a better system for my requirements so far.

Until now I did not have problems with my canon gear. I am very happy to have it. I think the pricing is just out of control. But that is something you see on other products as well. I don't understand why in Europe we pay for example 2300 euro for an item that cost in the US 2300 dollar. That is an incorrect exchange rate. Anyway, I see the quality is good and that will give me lenses for years to use. And my 5D MKIII is just awesome.

I "love" my trusty 40Ds and the "medium class" lenses I have - well crafted, reliable: Tools!

with focal lengths from 16 ... 4000 mm with equipment which is accessible for mortals.

Are you using the video zoom?  If so, how does it hold up?  I've never tried it tbh.

I got camera wobble with a 600mm lens (100mm equiv) how does 4000mm cope!?

As example of a video still I can offer the following:
http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=15877.msg291715#msg291715
(perhaps you have to scroll down to the photo of the moon)

Equipment:
600D + 3x Video Zoom (1920x1080, 24p) + 2x TC mk i + EF 5.6/400mm
(1.6 x 3 x 2) x 400 ~ (10) x 400 = 4000 (!)

I think the quality is more than acceptable and the non-uniform sharpness due to atmospheric effects shows that in vacuum the IQ still would be better - just I still prefer an earth WITH the current atmosphere ... ;)

Another example: the 70-200 4.0 mutates to a 110-320 + 330-920      @4.0 - VERY versatile. The 3x zoom function setting which uses a 1920x1080 region was the unique decision factor for the 600D and makes the 70D (has it too) a possible candidate to raeplace the 2 x 40D + 600D by 2 x 70D.

The first time I took a real picture (i.e. not one in the Canon showroom) with the 1D X, I thought to myself "Oh, ***t". It is so good, I wondered what excuse I will be able to use if I do not get the required shots! So yes, I am pretty happy, and CPS where I am are truly excellent, plenty or things going on, pro-active and always helpful, plus they're open 7 days per week. Yay. Thanks, Canon.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

This poll made me think in a bit wider perspective than just looking at this and that feature and the related $s / Euros / Kroner ....

Since I went from analog cameras (that I hardly used apart from various vacation-photos) to digital in 2004, I have been in the Canon-camp.
At first it was perhaps a bit by chance, when I chose my at that time 'advanced compact', the Canon G5. At that time I considered candidates from many other manufacturers.
It turned my interest in photography around and I started to learn much more about photography in general and about the many advantages of digital. That was a wow-experience.
In 2008 I was ready to move up to DSLR, and the Rebel / 450D was another wow-experience, that offered new capabilities, investments in additional gear and not least new learning-opportunities.
The latest step was taken this spring, where the full-frame 6D again offered a great wow-experience.

Looking back on this progression I am very happy that I started out with Canon. Many other manufacturers now look as if they would have been dead ends, had I chosen one of them.
And almost daily my Canon-tools have given me photographer's joy - as well as owner's joy.

Looking forward I feel confident, that Canon still has more to offer in terms of additional progress:
 - For me as a keen amateur: I have far from exploited the current product-line's advanced capabilities
 - And for the future: I expect Canon to be able to provide much of the new technology in this field in a well-planned and long-term oriented fashion, and at the same time protecting my investment in kit as well as in my own knowledge.

Being an engineer I tend to always see the missing details, clumsy features, etc.
So 'almost 100%' rarely come out as my reply.
However based on above wider perspective: This poll is one of those rare cases.

I am very pleased and pretty close to being a fanboy but am actively resisting it.  Since my wallet limits what I can get I have lust in my heart for some lenses but accept my equipment for the limits my wallet puts on my purchases.  I think their QC is good by my experience I do know of companies that are much worse.
