EOS Bodies - Developing ranges....
« on: September 19, 2012, 10:45:24 AM »
This is just a thought since looking at where we are with Canons EOS Bodies..

I reckon the following is a simplified view of where Canon see their bodies and the lines/levels of development:

CROP BODIES

Entry: 1100D
Mid-range: 650D
Top-end: 7D


FULL FRAME BODIES

Entry: 6D
Mid-range: 5D Mk III
Top-end: 1D X


Notice that under the crop bodies there is nowhere for the xxD range. I'm seriously wondering given the ability of the xxxD range now starting with the 650D that there is no longer room/a need for the xxD range, and that the 60D/60Da will be the last in that line. It does simplify things somewhat in a similar way to the merging of the xD and xDS ranges.

What do you reckon? Am I on to something here or is this utter tosh?  ;D

I reckon there is still room for a xxD line. But the numbers is running short. So let us move it up to the xD line. I mean come on, nothing except for the sensor on EOS 6D is really xD standard.
