What you are basically saying is you want Canon to make what Nikon makes, but you would rather whine about it than to switch to Nikon.You've affirmed what I've said. "More disconcerting is that Canon has overlooked the middle market and appears to be focused on producing entry level lenses or stratospherically priced L ones." The entry level DO lenses are fixed at f/11 and suffer a whole host of limitations from aperture to bokeh. The long primes are heavy, dated, and astronomically expensive. Nikon has successfully targeted the middle and the 800 f 6.3, for example is superb both in terms of size and performance. It is hand holdable, smaller, lighter, and almost a 1/3rd of the price of Canon's RF 800. Also it's sharp wide open (https://cameradecision.com/lenses/img/other/Nikon-Nikkor-Z-800mm-F6.3-VR-S-mtf-chart-1.jpg) and you should compare it against the $18k Canon (https://www.lensrentals.com/product-assets/4e5d812c-4f9c-4022-b1ab-263e16aea902/Table 2.jpeg). Look, I wanted Canon to be producing these kinds of lenses but they've been haphazard, slow to respond, have adopted a strategy which leaves me out. Besides, where is my high MP BSI camera? I'm holding one from Nikon called the Z8 and there is no bet that the R5II will offer a BSI, the range of FPS, fast sensor read out, fully customizable buttons ... The bottom line is Canon left me, I didn't leave Canon.
