you must be an old-style school teacher by profession and a Canon fan-boy by vocation. Too bad I am not one of your students.
Wrong on all counts. I'm not a teacher, nor am am I a fan-boy, nor am "old-style" in most ways. In fact, if I were to start my kit today I might well buy Nikon since their current offerings suit my current style of photography just as well as Canon.
The difference for me is that I don't expect Canon to do anything other than attempt to make a profit. I am not offended when they don't produce the equipment I want to buy at a price I consider "fair." Unlike you, I do not presume that everyone does photography the same way I do, nor do I believe I know how others do photography, nor what equipment other people want. On the contrary, I assume that Canon is capable of effective market research and analysis, and will produce the products that will make them a profit.
There is one and only one option open to me: I can use my money as I see fit. I can choose to buy more Canon gear...or not. At some point I could choose to sell my Canon gear and buy another brand...or not. Telling others what they should expect from Canon is...well...silly.
It is entirely legitimate for you to express your preference for future Canon equipment. It's not legitimate for you to presume to speak for the silent masses suffering under the yoke of (slightly) lower DR or IQ.
