The other problem with the argument is that there are far more people buying these cameras (1DX mark III, R5, etc) that are not professionals at all. Canon having these things at the Olympics is pure marketing. I'll never figure out why people draw the conclusion that professional sports shooters are hefting the whole camera/lens industry upon their shoulders. They just are not. The R5 at the Olympics makes complete sense.
I don't disagree with you and others. I spelled out what "prosumer" is, and when Canon does that, it allows the marketing folks to call it either way, pro or consumer.Canon has called the five series "professional" in some world regions while not calling it "professional" in other world regions. That kind of thing is all up to the marketing departments in each subsidiary.
the concept of the modern day mirrorless, e.g. EOS R, was started when DPAF was utilized in 7Dii or the Cinema camera of that era.The 7D MII was not mirrorless.
The DPAF was Canon showing a superior video method to all others available and still is.
There was such a rumor, but it seems the mongers are "waffling" on that one.Is there a high level rumor about the RF pancake? Don't recall in what state of ambiguity this one lies....I'd be adapting all glass but will pickup an RF lens if there's a peewee available.
Um, 1/3 of a stop was a reference to the RF 100-500mm being f/7.1 vs f/6.3, not DR.
Don't butter me up, your emoji is syrupy sweet but there were stacks of posts on it I believe. I'd flip for one if so. Someone must have info and I'd like to grill them.There was such a rumor, but it seems the mongers are "waffling" on that one.
The architecture, button configuration (e.g. dial and joystick), of 7D and 7Dii is the same. I shot on 7D (along w/ 5Dii) for nearly 10yrs, and just last month bought 7Dii, and there are significant changes but the physial layout is nearly identical (e.g. 7Dii has the additional programmable button next to grip).I shot a 7D as a second body from 2011 until 2015. It was not a "pro" body. It was a "not quite ready for prime time" body that felt like a pro body when shooting, but didn't look like a pro body when examining the output.
The 7D Mark II is the "pro" body that the 7D should have been.
The 70D had DPAF first, more than a year before the 7D Mark II. Mirrorless has been around longer than both.the concept of the modern day mirrorless, e.g. EOS R, was started when DPAF was utilized in 7Dii or the Cinema camera of that era.
The concept; the concept; the concept
And the battery. Don't forget about the battery.I've said this before the R5 even rumored w/ specs, and it was unpopular, that EOS R and RP are more like Rebel line than 1D predigree. That wheel and joystick is an strong physical attribute that what makes a Canon camera a pro camera.
