Yes, it has been a long time coming, and is still not here. I still have my old faithful EOS3 and film that come out to air from time to time. I also have my just as faithful but not so old 40D and have been waiting for a suitable upgrade.
Yes, there are worlds of difference between them, but there are some similarities also.
They both have rock solid bodies.
Both have the "essential" picture taking features.
Both have the optional battery grip.
Both can take EF or EF-S lenses.
Both have a decent FPS rate.
In summary, they are both great, solid performers with no bells and whistles. They don't make cups of coffee in the morning but do provide the essential features for photography without having to play too much with menu's etc.
Yes, one is full frame and one APS-C.
Here is my question:
If we were able to put the recently released sensor, processors, weather proofing and articulated screenand focusing capability from the 70D into a solid body, (Metal type), for a reasonable price, what other feature
(Please note the singular) could a person want?
A cost suggestion please from those interested. I imagine about $2,000.
The idea is to get a solid camera, with basic but ESSENTIAL still (NOT MOVIE) photograph taking capabilities without breaking the bank.
Only one extra feature per person please, just so we don't clutter it up. After all, how many of us use 100% of the features on the existing cameras frequently?
