I hear what you are saying. At one time Canon was the king of the hill, and very innovative -- first to give us affordable FF DSLR (5D "classic"), and very competitive lineup from entry-level Rebels to capable and affordable "advanced amateur" 7D, to top-of-the-line pro bodies.

But in recent years Canon has been in a slumber. If I can pinpoint a time, I think it started when they Rebel-ized the 60D. Since then their focus has been more on milking existing customer base and not innovations. Good thing we have other manufacturers such as Nikon to keep the field competitive! I hope this is a wake-up call to Canon.
