Remember folks... what is the medium of photography?  It isn't the camera... it is light.  So stop making the medium and your entire focus about the camera... all it was intended to be was a capturing/recording device.

You seem to read the thoughts of my heart. I am currently using an EOS 30D as a happy amateur. And whenever I miss something it is light....And yes, to do high ISO low light shots with a little less noise I am looking forward to purchase the next 5D body once it's out for quite a while...meanwhile...doin' the best I can. And yes: correct exposure in my Contax 139 Quartz days some 25 years ago...was THE issue. You nailed it or you blew it. There was nothing in between ;-)

Exactly. Thats why I would love to see a low noise performer on FF without all the bells and wistles some folks believe are necessary to create a descent picture. Reading comments on what kind of technology should be in a new camera, one starts wondering how the stunning pictures were created before the digitl era.

I know the 5DII would come close to what I need, but I would like to see less MP (lets say around 15 MP) and latest sensor technology.

Always nice to dream.  :P

I think it's a reasonable bet that Canon will update the EF 24-70mm and the EF 100-400mm next year.

I'm not trying to pick on you specifically, but everybody has thought this (including me) every year for the past few years... ;)

If everybody thought this, and I didn't, then I must be nobody  :'(

I failed the prophecy exams, so I'll have to admit I could very well be wrong, but my two cents are on those two lenses being next in line for upgrades.

I'm glad my words have resonated with a few here... While I'm not against innovation and these new features and things like HD video has been taken well with many of my clients and have given me a new skill set and allowed new products to offer my clients, these extra things (AF points, Video, Horizon Level, FPS, MP) are here to enhance our capabilities as photographers.  Seriously though, if you cannot get the shot you were seeking with 9 focus points, what makes you think you would have made it with 19 or 45?  I would have loved to ask Annie Leibovitz how many AF points she had when she photographed John Lennon...  Or all the National Geographic photogs how often they really use AF or their opinions of the needs of horizon levels or GPS as many have suggested.  I would like to see the 5D series to move up to about 24MP or so just to get to the max resolution a 35mm film could produce so the conversion to digital wasn't all lost and downgraded to what film had to offer back in the day... If you dont want to use all 24MP... then you dont have to use it all, but that way it is no worse than what photos had to work with when we were shooting velvia ISO 50 slide film... I would also like to see the 1Ds series move up to challenge more of a medium format class even if that means inventing more lenses to accommodate.  It was designed to be the flagship and designed to be the best quality studio camera... back in the day, studio photogs rarely used 35mm... they used medium format... 645, 6x7, and even 4x5 if they knew what they were doing... There is no reason they couldn't at least give us a square sensor to get close... In my feeble mind, that would be the flagship... not a glorified 5D with a built in battery grip and trumped up AF.  Once they get to that level, then the rest would be gravy...
