Canon's goal is not to give us great cameras.
Rather, their goal is to get as much money from us as possible, while keeping their expenditures as minimal as possible. .
They are more successful at this than any other interchangeable lens camera manufacturer.
Any 7D mark 3 specs will be based on maximizing profits for the company, not on pleasing photographers any more than they absolutely need to..
I agree. Each time Canon came out with a new camera model, I felt that they've intentionally left out a lot of things so that they can make the most profit from it. I also knew that their next model would be incrementally "improved." Well, while that has been their strategy up to now, thanks to Sony, Nikon and other industry rivals' innovative leadership, Canon is now basically saying that they'll do better:
We'll see. The only reason why I haven't jumped to Sony and Nikon so far is because of the photographic "system" that I had built around Canon for the past few decades. I refused to upgrade my Canon camera body for the past few generations of camera models. Based on the "rumored" 7DIII specs, I place what little hope I have left on it to go with my 5DIII.
