all the mentioned whining about the 5D MK2 autofocus did not bother canon at all.
It did. We got the 5D2 with a new AF and the same mediocre sensor.
ROTFL... so you think canon would not have improved the AF otherwise?
you may think about this again.. competition with other brands may play a more important role here then a few unsatisfied forum users.
and there is the 6D autofocus.. how you explain that?
after all it should have at least an AF like the 7D ... not?
canon must be very bad at learning when they "learend their lesson" from the 5D MK2 but could not translate that to the 6D.
i think canon does what it thinks makes economical sense and has a close look on what the competition does.
