If the 7D isn't updated, that would be a severe injustice.

Yes, it would rank up there with slavery and the Holocaust.

Melodrama much?

Well, actually I was satirizing -your- ridiculously dramatic statement that not getting the camera you want want was a "severe injustice".

But you didn't get it.

Actually, I did get it, but you're the one who quantified the injustice by comparing it to historical atrocities , not me.

It seems obvious that the phrase "severe injustice" is not appropriate for disappointment with camera models, but it is to historical atrocities, no?

No. It's not obvious. You specifically quantified it by giving a simile or metaphor quality and linking it to slavery or the Holocaust. I left that interpretation open to the reader, and you took it there.

The term "severe injustice" is not open to interpretation. It is clear. It does not apply to trivial things, like your disappointment with camera models. Period. Words do have meaning. There are, and have been, countless severe injustices in the world. Canon's plans with a camera model are not one of them.

Do you cut your finger and call it "a severe injury" (and "leave the interpretation open to the reader")?

I think I see what you're saying.

I probably should have said "Canon's refusal to release a 7D update would indicate their horrifically-intolerant oppression while demonstrating a deep loathing for the entire photographic community."

I wasn't as clear as I could have been.
