Excuse me! but does anybody here really believe Canon is going to invest millions in a new camera, upgrade or what you might call it? only because a few gear-heads like ourselves are blabbering out what we want? not just laughable, the very thought is ludicrous.

Oh Im sure we are a voice, but no more then a drop in the ocean.

Canon knows damned well that very few MII owners are going to upgrade with this one, they rely on half-format users upgrading to FF and keen amateurs, etc, etc. Pros invest in optics rather then a camera body with so little extras from the MII or the 1DSMIII.

Out of some 25 collegues, all commercial photographers that I personally know, ONE! of them upgraded to MIII.

Sure Canon listen but I mean lets keep things in perspective shall we, we are a forum, not a professional body, 70% here just like to talk about things, not buy. Canons consumer market is thousands of times bigger then the pro market.

Well said.
