Change profession to full time photography.
Maxim_C: I think that critics aren't saying that a Rebel isn't adequate, it is. The problem that they are talking about is that Canon is no longer a leader in innovation. Remember the days of old when Canon pioneered IS, EOS system was ahead of competition when it was launched. Fanboys need to feel passionate about their gear, its an emotional thing. Sadly this Rebel fails to inspire. I shot Canons professionally for over 5 years. Now that I no longer work in photography, I have sold all of my Canon gear and bought an OMD and couple of primes. Superior quality at fraction of the size / weight.
Maxim...you ought to go into politics. You're comparing apples to oranges. The T4 hasn't been on the market anywhere near as long as the cameras in the top five. Clearly the T4 is a big improvement over the T3. yet the T3 beats the T4! You try to slide that by everyone? And you say you're not self delusional. Maybe not but you have no trouble using stats that are totally misleading. Especially when you show the model that precedes the T4 as having sold more units! That's just absurd.
Ubilam: Why isn't there a "DISLIKE" button to hit, DPR? Seems we either 'LIKE' it or ??? what we read here regarding comments.
Keep politics out of it. What's with the name calling? Go back to listening to Rush.
