Would anyone else sacrifice video for better IQ?
8

Just curious to see if there are a substantial number of people who couldn't care less about video.

I would never expect Canon to remove video capabilities from a DSLR so I'm sure I'm just p*ssing into the wind here, but I wonder how great of a camera they could make at a similar price point and profit margin if they didn't focus so heavily on video and instead, focused on a better sensor, AF, processor, etc.

Would you buy a video-less DSLR?  If you could make your own (realistic) DSLR configuration, what would it be?
