Thom Hogan continues to have great points concerning cameras' capabilities.
If we all keep talking about this maybe Tokyo will notice??
I do wonder if the very slow evolution of cameras is to some extent a part of the camera manufacturers' business plans and allows them to incrementally improve just enough so that we purchase new gear.
Then also, there is the question about where do I want to see improvements, well for me, primarily in the ability to capture images, I'm not in that much of a rush to post on Facebook. I upgraded to the D850 for the improved AF abilities, especially with slower lenses (like my 200-500 + 1.4x which struggled to focus on my D800).
Thom also mentions lens improvements that are not there when he speaks of the new 180-400. Here he has a lot of good points, why don't we have a foot that will mount in tripods without plates? Why don't we have a better lens cover, I too hate those cloth covers.
