... If Canon were to introduce an entry-level FF camera at that price point then it would get in the way of the 7D2 (if that remained a APS-C.)FFFanboys
So I cannot see the future having any room for a crop-sensor 7D Mark II.
have a hard time realizing that not everyone wants or needs a FF camera!
Size and weight are very important to some Pros. And these Pros have even switched to M43 to get rid of unwanted size/weight.
Here are the weights for a few cameras (body only):
Canon 5D3, FF - 30.3 oz.
Canon 7D, APS-C - 28.9 oz.
Canon 60D, APS-C - 23.8 oz.
Why would I want anything heavier than a XXD
Sony NEX 7, APS-C - 10.3 oz.
Olympus OM-D EM-5, M43 - 13 oz.
Olympus E-P3 - 11.32oz. WOW!!!
, a 20 oz. (1lb. 4 oz.) difference between a NEX 7 and a 5D2
Isn't it about time for Canon to come out with a Pro Mirrorless
BTW I rented a 5D3 for a test shoot, nice camera, but too damned heavy.
BTW2 I own a Sony NEX 5n, that I bought to use as a Video Crash Cam. Great video, great stills (blows away Canon APS-C) and this 16.1 Mp APS-C camera only weighs 7.4 oz.
. It has no EVF
, but that's not needed for a Crash Cam.
