Canon is in a tough spot right now. The market that their Rebel line once dominated is being eroded away by the mirrorless cameras. In a few years I predict the rebels and entry level DSLRs as we know it will be a very small market. Cameras half the size will do what most people buy these cameras for.

So that leaves the EOS system in a quandry, as the low end of the market is their money maker. The "big" lenses will be made for high dollar, large sensor models like the 5D and 1D series for users wanting top peformance and IQ. But there is only so much market for cameras in this price bracket.

Canon will have to face the music soon and realize they really need two separate systems...small and mirrorless for the entry level, and the current EOS line for the high end. Simply put, the current EOS system will be a shrinking market on the consumer end.

My sites:

Very true.

But also seeing professional photography

as we once knew it,

being on its last leg,

the high end market will diminish accordingly.

Once upon a time,

companies (in its widest sense)

used to hire a photographer

even for the smallest things,

now they only hire you

and pay you accordingly

as the very last resort.
