TAF said:Canon is conducting the ultimate market survey.
If they get back 90% of the 5D4's for upgrade, then the folks who say that video its critical are proven correct.
If they get back 10% of the 5D4's sold, then they know that video is a nice to have, but not a factor that will allow them to charge a lot more money. $99 is 3% of the price of the body...which is virtually nothing to the individual but significant at the corporate level. If people won't pay that, then you have a very clear answer on what value people place on video capability.
I wonder if they'll tell us the outcome?
I wouldn't be surprised you're 100% correct. Yes they will tell the outcome - indirectly.
