I am waiting for the 5D5 as well. Until it is released I will stay with my D3. If it does not come, oh well Canon will have lost a customer. Not opposed to change, rather do not appreciate being forced to a new platform.

Well said, being a birder means looking through binos for hours. being a bird photographer means looking through the viewfinder for hours.

Looking through binos and spotting scopes for long periods is already extremely tiring. The last thing we want is an EVF and get a headache.

Sports photographers must have the same experience as they are also waiting for that rare moment.

These two customer groups are not opposed to change, they don't want a new tool that is a step backwards.

Two good posts there. It is downright offensive the way some people constantly claim (without a shred of evidence) that SLR users are "afraid of change" and "stuck in the past". It is a palpably wrong view. I doubt that there is a single person here who would say no to actual improvements in the overall usability and utility of a camera. But there are a lot of us here (and countless thousands more who don't read DPR) who will not shell out good money on a new tool which is less useful than the one it is designed to replace.
