Anyway, for sure, Canon need to wake up "sensor wise" because of concurrence.

As a still photographer with Canon gear, I'm among the "frustrated-with-Canon" crowd.

However, my impression is that with the success of the 5d2 video, they have focused their R&D $$$ to video, like the 70d's dual-pixel for "follow focus", plus cinema lenses and C100-C300 mid-level cinema cameras.

I don't think Canon anticipated how well the mirrorless m43 and APS-C would be able to do video, especially follow focus.
