The reason some us bitch and moan non-stop over 30000 posts is because you can't dare mention a single thing that is not perfect, no matter how innocently, without getting swarmed over and attacked by the likes of you and having to defend everything with 100x more posts than you ever intended making to begin and then getting fed up with it all and maybe sinking into less innocent sounding phrasing the next time you post.
And maybe some DO like Canon and that is why they'd like some things to catch Canon's attention so they don't end up having to deal with the Nikon UI or a few of the missing lenses in their lineup and the mess of having to deal with switching.
And how about we get that you think everything about anything Canon has ever made is 100% perfect and that everthing they will ever make is 100% perfect and that it is a mortal sin to mention anything otherwise or to suggest they fix anything in any way, that not one thing can be said to be less than perfect about a Canon, heck, if DxO reports the same less DR findings you'd probably try to launch a DDOS against their site.... if you didn't attack everyone and constantly get on them for everything then maybe there would just be a couple posts here and there pointing something out and that would be it....
Just two things.
One. If you want Canon
to hear, your complaining to the wrong people. Call up Canon, Email Canon, find an official Canon forum, and make noise THERE. If you refuse to do that, your not really interested in being heard by Canon
, your just interested in being heard, and being sensationalistic over minor issues is just a way to garner some attention. That doesn't really help anyone.
Two. I've never said I think everything Canon does is perfect. I have said on many occasions that I want more DR. I've also said that as far as my landscape photography goes, I could use more image resolution because I'm the type of guy who prints huge. Personally, I want 47mp FF, 16-bit with Sony-level now noise, 15.9 stops of DR, packed into a body with 61pt AF, 100k RGB metering sensor, 100% transmissive LCD viewfinder with a level visibile IN the viewfinder (not just the back LCD), 8fps and two CF card slots that support 1000x cards, built in gigabit ethernet, built in intervolometer with configurable bulb ramping, 5 custom dial modes and only Tv, Av, M and B as my other options.
a hell of a lot
. And I want it cheap
. But you don't always get what you want. So right now, I want to enjoy what I CAN get, without dumping my entire, very expensive kit. The 5D III is a MASSIVE improvement over the 5D II. A hell of a lot more than anyone really expected...despite being a little less than we may have all wanted...with two full stops of improved native ISO and the best AF system the world has seen yet.
I could certainly complain...but then there is that whole 80/20 ratio rule thing. Its GOOD ENOUGH, and were all better off enjoying
what it is (the 80%), rather than hating
what its not (the 20%).
So, LTRLI...I really hope you gain something for all the effort you expend here on this forum complaining about what isn't. You certainly don't seem happy, when you probably could be if you simply decided
to be satisfied
with what is. There is always a next time, and as far as Canon goes, next time is probably not 4 years from now...it could very likely be right around the corner and just past summer. You could very likely get 90, maybe even 95% of what you so desperately want
...if you just had a little patience
. Of all the things that might spell the end of the world
...Canon lacking a few bytes of AutoISO and shutter speed features probably isn't it.
