Just to add on... if you don't eat your own lunch... others will eat it for you...
Canon better be prepare to cannibalize their own business and kill off the noncompetitive lines or very soon, there's not much of a lunch for them to eat.
The whole thing about Canon 6D shows that they lack the business gumption to suck it in and take it like a man. And now they come up with something like a 100D!?!
Argh... Canon missed the point of a mirrorless camera... What is needed is a camera that can be packed into a jacket pocket with a pancake lens while still retaining all the possibilities of a full range of more capable lens.
The 100D sits either here nor there. And the hearsay I have on the pricing makes it totally noncompetitive.
Photography is undergoing an industrialization trend. In the past, equipment are expensive and require a lot of technical knowledge to get the most of of the photo.
However, newer generations of cameras has taken a lot of the technical out of the technique and render it easy for most people to get pretty good pictures.
Like the artisan who hand make the furniture, the weaver to hand wove the cloth, the artistic line of photography is subjected to the same democratizition process.
