Found this out at the website below :

http://newcameranews.c​om ...o-end-camera-development/ (external link)

Basically they say that their cameras are more sophisticated than the users (generally).


SX10is, S90, d5100 (35mm1.8, 18-55mm, 55-200mm), d750 (28-300mm, 50mm 1.8, 35-70mm 2.8, 24-120mm f/4, 85mm 1.8G), EOS-M5 (EF-M 15-45mm, 18-150mm, EF 40mm 2.8)

I was shocked too but they did say that they will suspend development but continue to produce what they have now seeing that they can't make it any easier for users to shoot. To me, since phone cameras are being used so much, the camera "bug" might hit them too and they would want to learn more about cameras and get better gear.

Ya know, there is actually a lot of truth there though. I mean I look at my old cameras and I don't use most of the features. :):)


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.
