Orangutan said:I guess I don't understand: how you, as an individual, choose to spend your money is not of concern to Canon. They're interested only in the aggregate expenditure (and profits). So far, they've done better on that than other brands. Like you, I don't have the money to maintain multiple kits from different manufacturers, but I don't see that as Canon's fault or problem: they make their product choices, then I decide how (or if) to spend my money.TonyPicture said:Orangutan said:
Large investment in class and camera TBH and I hope that they'll actually deliver a FFML that is useful, failing that I'll agree it's time to look elsewhere as a friend has sold up and jumped over to the Sony A73 he's very happy with his new investment and hasn't missed his 6d2 yet...
Honestly, I have an even more basic lack of understanding. I don't understand what people are looking for in a camera. I like my toys as much as the next guy, or else I wouldn't be on the is forum. But, I can't figure out what it is that people think they are missing.
From a work standpoint, yes, there are some aspects that I would like to see improved because they might help me get better shots (autofocus for example), but even in those aspects, I know that any technological improvement is only going to make a marginal difference and the thing that will really help is my improving my own skill set.
A camera is a pretty basic instrument. It takes pictures. I can't help thinking that all the things that people feel Canon is deficient in really aren't going to make any difference at all in the quality of their work.
