"Trolling"

As in for Trolls  ;D  Honestly, they released it to make everyone on the forum that already doesn't like Canon mad.

Seriously, the same fifteen people are beating the same drum on 8 different threads.
Canon Rumors is presently creating photographer shortages in Middle Earth (all the trolls emigrated here)

One word? "Camera".

 Y'all are crazy. I'm excited there is nothing new tempting me to waste my money on another camera body with minor changes. Technology is pretty good people. Enjoy shooting with what you have!

 I am not switching to Nikon, not as long as I can't put a 70-200 F/4 IS on a Nikon mount...


The Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 OS HSM costs the same and it's as great. Plus, you have a fully usable f/2.8, if you can live with the extra weight. AF works better on Nikon cameras than it does on Canon, if that was your concern.

No, there is no Nikon, or other lens that compares to that lens. It is the sharpest medium to long zoom on the market. It is also very light. If you are a landscape shooter like me, you could care less about 2.8.

Do you think it's something new that electronics companies (or any company for that matter) has different products at different price points in their line up?   They're all cameras so there has to be some differentiation in features, quality, etc. to justify the price.
Thank you for stating what should seem obvious, but apparently isn't understood by many.  Photographers are always complaining that a lesser model is a "crippled" version of a more expensive model, and a more expensive model is an "overpriced" version of a lesser model.  Why don't people understand the basic principle of "You get what you pay for"?

well i think you don´t understand that people complain here because they can get more from nikon these days....

and unfortunately some of them have invested a 5 figure number in canon lenses....

I'm somewhere between arrogant and feckless.

Arrogant: We're the big dog, and you'll take what we give you!

Feckless: What are we going to do about this aging 5D2 in our lineup? Let's throw this cheapie at it and see what happens.

This is not a camera for photographers. It's a camera for people.

Someone at Canon has put his career on the line to bet on the young, social media generation having a lot of discretionary income and willing to carry a DSLR around to show up their iPhone buddies.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

Actually I think it's more the pros that have a huge collection of nice lenses yet still use their iPhone because it's so much easier to post up pictures online. This gives them a (assuming) good sensor and good enough everything else that should hopefully make this much easier.
