This is in some ways debatable but in others, very true and that's why there was such shock over the R5, which finally ticked my boxes. It was repeatedly stated by many that a "pro" camera couldn't have a flip-out screen etc. For me my bit of disgust at Canon came with there being zero value added after the fact features with the 1DX2 - one early bug fix and that was it. Of course that's been amplified by how they are now catering to the R5, so I have mixed emotions. Have they changed their philosophy?What I like about Sony is that they have not "crippled" their cameras to leave room for improvement. For a while it seemed that they wanted to put any innogvation into their latest cameras to give Canon a hard time. Canon sometimes seems to have new innovations, but saves them for a few cameras later. That is something I always hated about Canon.
