Hey Im all for improvement and bettering of the breed, but I really find it hard to get excited or inspired by any of the newest cameras coming out these days form the likes of any of these manufacturers, especially Canon. Im so fkn confused now with all these models, and the improvements are slight. The first taste I got of this was when I dropped 8 grand on one of the first 1ds mk3s and then shortly after the 5dmk2 came out, I was pissed that they were someowhat similar and I could have saved over 4k. then there was what? the 10, 20, 30 , 40, 50d, and now the 7 d, then the 5 d the 5d mk2, the 1ds, the 1ds mk2, the 1ds mk3.....all within a few years....for cryin out loud, there does come a point when your just making too much stuff and take away the fun of it. Im in no rush, nor will i be to run out and buy anything new that canon brings out that .00235% better than the newest thing they just announced 2 minutes prior. Again, I think its fine to make improvements, but make it worthwhile, not just slight one upmanship, its actually kind of boring. Canons new models get released with about the same frequency as a teenager updates their twitter page. That kind of variety works with jelly beans and dog breeds, but cameras, come on just my 2, er 3, no 4, wait, 5, hang on...5.2, ooh wait, 7 cents

With out any paragraph breaks, your post is extremely difficult to read. Any Cliff notes?

I can't read what you wrote, but I completely agree with you. The 9.5D will be awesome!! I think:D


Too much stuff, not enough shooting time.

Canon T4i (2 lenses), Fuji X100s, Olympus OM-D EM-1 (3 lenses)

The 7D brings (what should be) a vastly improved AF system, a new metering system, full-manual control video, and what looks to be pretty impressive ISO performance, along with 8 fps. I'd hardly say they improved on the 50D by .00235%.

In fact, it seems they included just about everything crop shooters sought.

I, for one, am impressed, and I still shoot an "old school" 5D that I love.

If they bring out a FF camera with the 7D's AF and metering and improved fps, Canon users may no longer have to look at the D700 with lust.

Huh?

You lost me at

I dropped 8 grand on one of the first 1ds mk3s and then shortly after the 5dmk2 came out, I was pissed that they were someowhat similar and I could have saved over 4k.

The 1DsMkIII came out almost 2 years before the 5DMkII did, and the only real similarities between the bodies are that they are both full-frame and have about the same megapixels.

Would you rather that they never came out with new cameras?

Isn't it better to have more choices? Just pick the one that works for you and take some photos. If you don't like your current model sell it and buy another one. Are you angry at all the different car models driving around out in the streets too?



current gear...1DIII, X-E1, X-PRO 1, X100, Lumix LX5, Fujinon 35 1.4, 85LII, 430EXII, 430EX....
past canon gear....XS, 7D, 2 5DII, 2 1DIII, , 18-55IS, 24-70L, 85 F1.8, 85LII, 35F2, 35L, 24L, 200 F2L, 580EXII....

I like to buy cameras when they're considered yesterday's news! That way, you can get a great deal on a perfectly good camera that all of the "got-to-have-it-first" crowd are willing to dump for 30 to 40 cents on the dollar.

That's how I got my 1DsMkII. ;)

Sure, the latest features are really nice to have but its also good to remember that those features aren't a guarantee of you taking better pictures. That's far more dependent on your glass and your skills both as a shooter and post processor.

Cheers!

Remember this is more about business making money than keeping the buyers happy. The same can be said to many software products.

Maybe it's just me , but i've no problem reading 6 and a half lines. Agree with the OP- maybe the 7ds' canons way of poncing up the xxd range( which to me are fat xxxds with a significant price loading) and killing the same range.


everything ever

Maybe it's time to just enjoy/use what you have and stop worrying about the gear so much.

There will always be a better model coming out, whether it's cars, computers or cameras - get over it or it will consume you.

If you're out taking photos and getting good results, what do you really care if another model comes out that has an extra button or megapixel?

Well said.
I'm perfectly happy with the 5D. Do I want 19 AF points, all cross-type? Sure. Do I need them for what I shoot? Not that I've noticed. :)

I may have wished for that particular button to be on my current camera.

He's saying the 5DII came out shortly after he bought his copy of the 1DsIII.
