With the release of 1DX & 5D3, it tells that the company finally listen to the upset users..
1D4 is great but its not full frame..with the sensor technology the company hold, they should have release a FF 1D4..
5D2 lousy old AF should have borrow from 1D series AF system..
The more pixel put on sensor will lead to high noise and narrow dynamic range, as you guys experience in 5D2, 60D, 7D..
So, now you get a FF 1DX, a 5D3 with 1D AF system and both low MP, 1DX & 5D3..
Some how, this also tells that, the EOS sensor & Lens technology had come to bottleneck..
1) The R&D team struggle to insert more pixel into sensor and maintain clean output with wide dynamic range..
2) The Hi-pixel sensors may out resolve the L lens too..try ask 7D/60D/600D user how soft the image produce by the 18MP sensor..
3) And the more pixels to process may force the R&D team to insert Quart CPU or even more CPU to maintain processing power..
But the competitors are doing fine, i means a great job...
Try to look at D800 test result in DXO Sensor Marks website..
You can see these comments to D800..The Nikon D800 is the new king of DxOMark with a score of 95"..or "The Nikon D800: A full-frame sensor with no weak points"..
See how poor the old 5D2 result compare to, of cause the new D800..
The D800 result on par with medium format camera..
See D800 top the Amazon Best Selling DSLR chart..5D3 only in 9th place..
So tell me, you guys had better reason to buy a USD3,500/ RM11,000 5D3 where you can actually have one, 5 years ago?
Or the Best IQ with advance AF system and many more feature D800 with USD3000/ RM9200 only?
