Although I am a Canon user for many years, but I really hate to say it we will not see anything good from them, looks like Nikon took the ball and ran with it and Canon is to busy worring about video, I am starting to think that I married the wrong system but we'll see...

Canon is a huge organization capable of doing many things at once. Notice the Nikon A coming out? If you think Canon is wasting their time what is that? Canon produced something that nobody has matched yet and they don't get any credity. A near-APS-C sensor (yeah, nobody likes the aspect ratio except me and two other people I think) in a smallish body with a zoom lens (great quality) for a reasonable price. Sony used a 1" sensor and a truly point and shoot (features and size) body which is great for some and Nikon is sticking with their 1 system and the A.....doesn't impress me.

Canon is obviously working on their technology whether you like video or not. All the R&D will find its way into your precious Canon upgrade soon enough and it will benefit still capture as well as video. Nobody can ignore video any more, although I wish it wasn't such a high priority in a stills body. I haven't seen Nikon or Sony or Olympus or anyone else do something that I find all that stunning and innovative. What is Nikon doing?

fair enough.."what is nikon doing"..they did inspire canon to build the excellent 7d..wich is a"me too"camera 2 full years after d300..yes 7d exceeds d300/300s 2 years.. later

There is no end to this "me too" way of thinking. You think there wasn't anything that compared to the D300 when it came out? You think the 7D was an answer to the D300 with HD video and several more megapixels that were also more advanced megapixels? The 50D was out a year after the D300 and beat it in many ways. Getting into a debate about what feature justifies victory is pointless, but Canon competes on their own terms and they win quite a few of these bouts you're mentioning.

.when canon was on top of the world with their ff cameras they had a great chance to burry nikon but failed to produced the high speed highly responsive ff camera that the canon camp wanted..nikon released the high speed ff d3/d3s..now that canon has the fantastic 1DX ff super camera..it is a great camera..but it's also a "me too" camera..a higher performing d3/d3s/d4 type camera..think about it.nikon d7100 is announced and will be available at the end of this month, and canon will announce their next "me too" camera soon enough to compete with d7100.the new eos m mirrorless camera ..is a "me too" camera inspired by the the sony nex system.canon builds some excellent cameras and they have greater market share than the rest...but they dont innovate like they use too..playing it safe?..ohh d600 was released before the 6d..both stellar cameras....canon has a great chance here to innovate by introducing the killer 7dmk2 with the runored high specs,if they do, it will force nikon to announce their "me too" competitor to 7dm2...have you seen the kickass cameras from fuji?name one camera from canon or nikon that competes with the fujiis?

In May 2000 Canon announced the first affordable consumer DSLR in the form of the D30 with a sticker of around $3,000. Nikon had their D1 for almost twice as much with fewer pixels. The D100 was out in 2002 with a 6MP CCD for $2,000 around the same time as the D60 6MP CMOS was out for the same price (D100 had a plastic fame and D60 was mag). For a few years after that point Nikon's sensors lagged way behind Canon's. They finally caught up. Then the megapixel wars began....not to mention Nikon's focus-point wars. I subscribe to quality-not-quantity and I also think there is such a thing as too much. Simplicity, effectiveness, and quality that matches my shooting (the system, not just the body) is what I'm interested in. There is always back and forth, but to think those are all strictly responses from Nikon and Canon underestimates both companies.

I've never cared for Fuji. They've got some interesting cameras, but they've got some lousy ones too.
