exactly. Canon has never hinted that APS-H is dead . that came from this site
No. Actually it didn't. It came from Canon announcing the merger of the two 1D models into one, which included statements that said that up-sampling images from the new 1DX would result in a quality comparable to the APS-H crop. They later made statements about keeping their options open and general statements about their commitment to professional sports and wildlife photographers.
well, not to nit pick, but the most direct statement about APS-H being dead came from this site. Canon has never stated APS-H is dead, as the owner of this site has done. To be sure inferences of such can be plausibly drawn from the Canon statements, but one can also infer that Canon's commitment to pro sports togs does not mean to forcing them into buying longer glass.
I'm not arguing the quality of the format. But, if you travel the technology highway you'll see the ditches are filled with products that were of higher quality than those that ran them off the road.
sure, Sony Beta is one example. but all of this is just to say that one opinion is as good as another; if Canon decides they can be profitable and that market demands H they will do it, and we'll just have to see what direction they take. Its just my preference to avoid dwelling on the perceived transitional nature of APS-H, and instead concentrate on what it means for Canon to remain committed to pro sports.
