But, all in all, there are enough rational and knowledgeable persons on this forum to make it worthwhile (and addictive) to stick around.

  • Great gear is good. Good technique is better.

geez, the "HD" buzzword is so dated, why even go there?  re-reading the announcement reminds me of all those products featured in the 00's that were "HD". 

Remember those "HD" night driving sunglasses?  ::)

hah I do!

and yeah these days the buzz is all UHD now

(can't wait for the UHD sunglasses  :D)

buy 2 "HD" D4s' fitted with yet to be revealed "U" ND filters, one for each eye!
M, 5Dc, 1Dx, some lenses, a few lights

Both Canon and Nikon have their individual strengths and weaknesses. It might be that some people's efforts to portray Canon as inferior triggers the indignation and loyalty in some others to defend Canon, sometimes rationally, sometimes over zealously. I am sure hidden within Canon's successful bottom line is countless bad decisions, as will be whenever one has to second guess what the consumer will want.
It's unfortunate that sometimes these debates turn personal. I used to take offense earlier but now I've realized that anonymous online forums are great vehicles for people to vent the frustration of their day, so one shouldn't take these too seriously. At the end of the day, neither are we responsible for Canon's good or bad decisions, nor do we get anything by attacking or defending them.
Having said that, a super vague development announcement seems like a desperate move. Not that I am saying there's any reason for it- undoubtedly D4 and D800/E are exceptional cameras and I'd have loved to have one if I had the money (the D800 that is, I'm too weak for pro dSLRs :) )

It's funny when Nikon and Canon trolls go to war over announced cameras. I just sit back with some pop corn and watch the fire works...or I get out and do some shooting :D
My first camera was a Canon AV-1 (manual focus, and Av only). I chose Canon becuase that's what my Dad used and I could borrow his lenses. I've stuck with the brand for my whole life and I've never looked back. For me operate a lecia, Sony or Nikon is like handling aline technology....I mean after all, their dials go the wrong way :D
