45I think the OP's point is valid.
Invest in the R system on the premise more resolution is coming to then find out its a video camera that also takes stills.
That's what this site is about! Rumors... until they eventually becomes a fact or they are found untrue or the release date is much later than expected! Therefore, you're disappointed because you don't get your high-res sensor/camera body now, but it doesn't mean that's it's not in the pipeline. Canon makes choices because they need to sell camera bodies and catch up with the mirrorless competition. I understand and respect the needs that certain photographers have for 75+ mp sensors. However, the reality is that the vast majority of photographers will prefer a 45 mp camera with a higher frame rate than a high mp camera with lower frame rate and a buffer that fills up quickly because of the huge size of the raw files. I don't know where to find the numbers, but I'm sure Canon has sold much more 5D Mark III and mark IV than 5DS and 5DSR.Please.........!
Are we talking self serving as in the continual requests for higher frame rates, uncropped 4K, flippy screen, larger buffer, two card slots, pancake lenses, smaller body, bigger body or larger rear screen etc?
Or are we talking self serving as is all the rumors said such camera would arrive in February and as you obviously have no need for more resolution its suddenly ridiculous to ask for such a thing?
