Canon has really let us down. We've waited years for an upgrade from the 1DS Mark III. So Canon tells us that the 'upgrade' will be a super expensive camera that has less resolution than the 1DS mark III. And we have to wait six (more) months- pushing the delay for the upgrade from the Mark III to 3.5 years.
I will not spend the money on this camera.
Canon is trying to dictate what we want, rather than listening to our concerns. Did serious photographers really want a combination video camera? Really?
What a massive disappointment.
And having tried the 1D Mark 4 this summer- that camera really did not prove its worth. The camera blew the whites (even after adjusting the CF settings) and rendered terrible colors.
Who would pay so much for such poor quality?
But hey, I have to produce the best images. Canon can no longer deliver.
And I hate being kept in the dark about new releases. It makes it harder to make good business decisions.
