No DSLR is an island

but rather the core a flexible system that can be many different kinds of cameras for multiple uses.

But there is one kind of camera that cannot be put together from any system now on the market, for any price.

That is the super high image quality, low light capable, not excessively big and heavy, state of the art AF camera with high quality, moderately sized zoom lenses.

The 5DII came close, except for Canon's decision not to upgrade AF. The D700 comes close, but does not have the lenses. The 1dsIII is close, but is too big and heavy.

So artistic street photography, event photography, artistic photojournalism, and, of course, walk-around photography of every sort, including vacation shooting, is not covered.

These are all great, world class camera systems, but each one has a hole in its lineup that limits its flexibility for an important purpose.

It's just kind of a shame that the kid of photography that made 35mm famous is just not respected by camera designers.
