I would disagree that the move to 9 cross-type focus points is "incremental". The full frame 6D is getting slammed because it only included a single cross-type point. Those shooting moving or off-center subject may find the extra cross-types invaluable.
Otherwise I think your point is valid - Canon's entire APS-C lineup is in dire need of a new state-of-the-art sensor.
Agree. As I said, between T2i and T5i Canon produced exactly one real feature. And even that - unlike the improvements in IQ that could have happened - is only helping some of the shooters. I am still waiting for Canon cameras to get better dynamic range.
I think I said before.. the problem is not that Canon makes stupid marketing decisions (Nikon had their high level AF in consumer DSLRs much earlier, but then Canon had the swively screen and useful HD video). The problem is, DIGIC sensors are lagging behind Sony sensors - at least in my opinion. If Nikon catches up in the lens department, at least in the entry / mid level area, both selection and price wise, Canon risks losing the consumer DSLR market - and that's where they make the money, they probably sell 100 Txi's for each XD body.
