I wish there is a easy way to sell all my Canon stuff and switch to Nikon. I know that's most likely not going to happen. So disappointed with Canon.
The specs are only rumors, but even if only half of it is true Canon has to do something.
However, it's important to differentiate between things Canon can and cannot do. They cannot compete with Sony's sensor tech. However, they can release a ff body at $2000 that is actually usable and has a better af than the 5d2. I'd wish you'd start selling your gear and let Canon know about it, because that's the only way to make them listen. Let's see how much the 440rt flash will cost. $200 like the 430ex2 or $400?
Go for it... no ones holding you back
Of course this is the message of the day in a Canon enthusiast forum, if people aren't prepared to pay $3500 for an up-to date camera body, it's their own fault. But seriously, if there aren't any hidden drawbacks and the price would be indeed around $1500, Canon is toast in the mid-range segment, and rightly so.
The 5d2 with its af isn't comparable, though it runs magic lantern which is the reason I got a Canon dslr in the first place. I'm holding back any further Canon purchases until the very moment I really need them to see what Canon does next.
