I must bookmark Canon Rumors Guy's post because in a few years time (when the mirrorless frenzy has died down / matured, take your pick, ) and Canon bring out a 5DV I'm just gonna love quoting that post.No. I asked @Canon Rumors Guy if his definitive declaration that there would be never be "another 5D DSLR," because "it would be an economic misstep if Canon made such a camera," was based on reporting from his sources or if that was just his opinion.
For, I don't know 40 years maybe, the most accurate predictor of what Canon would be doing has been to look at what Nikon is doing. Nikon has said they will be introducing new DSLR models and new lenses for DSLRs in the coming year. It would be a very significant development and very much out of character if Canon were to completely cede the DSLR market to Nikon. So, I'm just wondering if Canon Rumors Guy has sources that are confirming that, or if he is just voicing his own opinion, which he has every right to do, but which carries no more weight than the opinion of anyone else on this forum.
There's a huge amount of up to date EF lenses available, and no doubt if Nikon do introduce the D870 (or whatever) Canon will be watching closely. Also looks like Pentax are going to hang their hat on the slr model continuing, so it's going to be interesting to see who's got it wrong and who's right.
