I don't preorder, I'm not a paid beta tester!

Changing brand is not expensive as the return price on used Canon gear is remarkably high and if you don't need the unique lenses and radio flash of the Canon system then there are other brands that offer more appeal in some areas. But to suggest Canon 'are behind' is farcical, they are the best selling camera maker out there, and have been for many years, so your "even further behind" is absolute garbage.Hazmatt said:Well thats quite surprising and i do understand who they made it for and was hoping that would include me but it does not for the reason i stated. There is better out there for my needs and the next iterations of the competition will leave Canon even further behind. This is a real shame i do not understand what they are playing at its even worse as the glass they are producing is amazing. i have enough gear to take photos with so i will probably just sit this one out but if money was no object I'm sorry to say i would have to take the leap. I will say though that everything i have owned from Canon has worked flawlessly and cameras have been handed on in the family and they all still work.privatebydesign said:Then you don't understand why Canon made the cameras or who they made them for.
Over 26% of respondents say they are going to buy one, that is a crazy good uptake rate for such a specialised tool.
The 5DS/R are not meant to be 5D MkIII or 1DX replacements, they are meant to be complimentary niche products for those comparatively few shooters that need the specific feature set the new cameras give.
