With the new 5dmk3 (which i love) getting rough reviews and now the second fimrware, i started to think, especially with the hype over a big 7d firmware, which i use as a backup.
Like i mentioned im happy with the 5dmk3, is it possible they camera, especially since the last one was out for several years, has exceeded hardware limits over firmware? Could early firmware tweaks be almost prepared for, as if behind closed doors they feel the users expected more lets give them a bit?
Or honestly the hardware is very advanced, and in the future they can roll out software to advance the body, i.e if a camera has dual cards like the 7d they can roll out software updating the features which the hardware can handle?
To be honest, I dont understand the behind the scenes of a DSLR, how different is the 5dmk2 sensor to a 5dmk3? are the processors that advanced to a 7d?
Honestly the old gear thread which was great proved that pre 2010 cameras were great, and that as a whole we had great photos, especially with our rebels, p&s, 20d, 10d, 40d, etc that probably blow away most users with there new fandango 5dmk3.
I dont know who to give credit to but a user recently posted, they plan to stick with there gear body wise in the future, if it works why replace it. Honestly think back to when digital switch was popular, some guys held fil others went digital, ealry on how archaic does the gear seem now but worked at the time and would still work now?
While I agree DSLR needs growth and has endless room I now find the humor in new bodies, as if they are so great that pre that body all photos are inferior.
