  1. I didn’t miss your point. I just think it lacks reasonable perspective.

    We completely disagree that the Nikon D3, D90, D300, D40 etc. are point and shoot cameras, as they all had problems, all had firmware undates to fix problems, and if you search on google you will find tons of user complaints on Nikon DSLR’s in various photography forums from a google search. Perspective matters. No one comapny makes perfect products.

    I’ve switched pro SLR systems three times in my career, from Contaxt RTS, RTSII’s with Zeis lenses of which all 3 bodies broke on a shoot in Spain, to Nikon F3’s which I had a fleet of because they all broke so often, to EOS which have yet to break on me from EOS 1’s to my two 1Ds3’s including a couple of XXD bodies as well. Nikons are good cameras. I might buy them now if was starting fresh. But to single Canon out for problems the way you do is not a realistic or reasonable perspective. All camera companies have production problems and defects, always have, always will.

  2. I was born sarcastic. lol

    Personally I think given the huge Canon product line and new cameras released each year the problems are relatively few, and they get fixed.

    Changing things like the LCD on the G series was probably because at the time bigger LCD’s were the rage and they probably thought they were meeting consumer demand. I think a slightly smaller but higher rez LCD like they can make today could justify bringing the swivel back, but we’ll see.
