"Evolution" is accurate term for new 5D
Sep 17, 2008

I'm shocked that they went through all this hype to sell the next incremental upgrade, what a waste of marketing time and money. The only thing groundbreaking about the 5D2 is that it shoots video, VERY useful for average photographer. Sure, plenty of people are happy about that, but I don't care a bit about video.

As predicted, another "evolutionary" upgrade was SO not worth the Canon advertising campaign. Far too much build-up for too little pay-off. They set themselves up for this. Only the fanboys would get too worked up about this after Sony's announcement.

Canon is going to need to ramp it up considerably if they expect to compete with Sony.

Never stop upgrading.
