Re: My view on Canon performance (sensor)

I find it truly dissappointing that Canon did not make an effort to update their 5-7 year old sensor technology. Nikon/ Sony did so and their strategy paid off: They now have worked out a true advantage in sensor tech, and almost every model they release is very good.

Sorry, that 5D3's sensor is derived from 20D which will be 8 years old in November. The most alarming figure to me is their DXO's DR figure from their sensor...... Canon did not improve on this area for the longest time!! Canon is acting like Microsoft or Nokia, in its respectable industry. Sad that I feel that way, because I love its primes 35L 50L 85L & 135L..... Its inability to draw out shadow details IS going to be discussed over & over & over again.
