You're joking, right? Ever talk about a 5D and they ask if it's the II or III? Or mention the iPad and one assumes the newest one? Happens all the time.

Nope, a model is a model: 5D, 5D2, 5D3. And Apple denotes their products with "generation" for the ipod touch, ipad, ipods, e.g. ipod nano 5th generation - that's how they are labeled in stores.

Actually, Apple has refused to do that with the iPad.  People talk about Gen 1 v 2 v 3 v 4, but Apple stopped differentiating beginning with the 3.  And this has been true for the Mini, the MacBookPro, the iMac since the beginning.  The nano is the exception, not the rule.

In any event, what did anyone gain from rehashing this silly pedantry yet again?  And what does anyone lose from seeing 5dc or 5D mk I?  It's been well proven that not being very clear about the model leads to confused replies.  You say you're here to discuss photography - why not actually do that?
