His job is not to make (some of) dpreview readers happy... There are, however, some interesting "clues" regarding the vision. My take. Cheers! :)
Zerg2905: Smartphone: "I know Kung Fu!"Canon: "Show me."
Cheers. :) + !
So? Is Canon financially sound or not? "Show me!"Cheers! :)
Smartphone: "I know Kung Fu!"Canon: "Show me."
Zeisschen: End of the evolution and it became a big fat boring blobb of melted plastic. yawn
Uh, boron carbide edition, anyone? Cheers! :)
elf kerben: So, in half or a year these package as an D700 successor with optional battery grip and i will forgot the missing D400 all these years.
Canon has that sensor, not Nikon. Sorry. Cheers! :)
Zerg2905: 1. Muahahahahahaha! 2. Come on, Canon, 1000 FPS, full card no matter the size RAW buffer, and ISO 1638400 or nothing! Cheers! :):) + :).
Right. A bigger card called SSD it is, then. Cheers! :)

Henry M. Hertz: well it´s simple.
there are only so many amateur morons who buy a new camera every 2-3 years. :)
the majority doesn´t see why they should buy a 700D over a 450D or 550D (insert your nikon or sony models).not for 10x15cm prints or facebook uploads.
so the market is saturated.. good is good enough for the majority.the few people on forums like dpreview doesn´t count overall.it´s not even 1% of the customers.
people normaly don´t buy a new printer just because there is a new model.they use their printers until they break.i guess the same applies to cameras.
today most who want a DSLR have a DSLR. it´s always the same.... at one point the market is saturated.
and to be honest... improvements are marginal and only visible (or important) for geeks.
Yep. Cheers! :)
DotCom Editor: I've noticed that Canon's DSLR innovation and market momentum have both been cut in half.
Oh, sure, the 200-400 is quite common... Cheers! (...)
Zerg2905: Only Gold? This camera deserves a rare element not yet found on Earth. This is The First and (probably not) The Last, The Alpha and Omega of all cameras. Ever. And ever. A-men! Hallelujah! Cheers, and cheers again! :) :) :)
Right. Cheers! :D :D :D
historianx: Another Gameboy console posing as a camera. Pass.
Thing is, I still need more than 22 Mp for my MP-E 65 lens (for the crop). So this Sony camera is somewhat interesting in this respect. But, to buy a just a sensor for 2000+EUR is a bit too much... Even if I can afford it, no problem. I simply don't care about the other specs. So Canon folks should indeed do more for me than the 1200D and put that prototype beast on the market. Cheers! :)
gdfthr73: I still think these are the Ugliest (notice the capital U) cameras since the Pentax K-01 (maybe Uglier) but not as ugly as the Hasselblad Lunar. Size wise they are not that much better than a d600 or 6d. IQ is great I'm sure but man what a dog!
I had a Zenit 12. Unbreakable. Died of old age... I still have it, however, and I plan to resuscitate it. Probably after I will retire... Cheers! :)
@ric63: aaaaa... Well, Canon has brought an interesting compact lately. And the 200-400 f/4 with built-in 1.4X converter. And, the digital photography world, as we know it today... Don't think Canon is dead. Please. Read the 2013 financial statement. Compare it with Sony. And btw, I have a PC at home that can simply crush ANY console... Cheers! :)
That's for sure for Sony. What about the customer? Cheers! :)

sean lee: come on canon....Is this all you can do?For this size, at least view finder should included.It is same size as Fuji x100 or XE2 with lens........I know for zoom lens like that, it is still smaller than other lens.... but.....
Good to see Howard back again. It was pretty boring in the comments land. Cheers! :) :) :) P. S.: and this time I agree. With him. This looks like a proper camera.
Good initiative. They had to do this, there was no other way to further push the m4/3 in the "photo" direction. So the name of the game is VIDEO (let's bet: the first 4K "affordable" FF DSLR will come from...)! Cheers! :)
CameraLabTester: "A typical DSLR has around 120 screws of 11 different sizes."
This cadaver had only 29 screws of just three different sizes.
THAT says a LOT of what's going on inside those R&D labs... they deliver.
Other brands just re-badge, clone and tweak.
He he, right, but let's go to a war zone - A7R vs 1DX. 1DX can, probably, stop a bullet and save your life. Literally. So size and number of screws matters. Cheers! :):):) P. S.: there is a rumour regarding a possible high end Canon camera with kevlar body instead of Mg alloy. Interesting! I wonder if they can do that.
Cool! Cheers! :)
zodiacfml: I'd rather burn money on a Zeiss Otus and a D800e.
Right. Use a credit card instead. Cheers! :)
