  2. LOL! I'm just on the lifetime "rental" plan!
    Your evidence?

  3. You got it! Canon won't make a 5D replacement to compete with the 1Ds Mk
    III. And who really needs high fps in a studio camera?

    The evidence is evident. You post crap and drivel and innuendo and quotes
    and snippets, all without intelligence. Go away!

    It's not a comment about John. It's a comment about evidence or lack
    of evidence.

    Well, check out Rita's many posts and then get back to us. He/she fouls
    this forum on a regular basis.

    Help me out, here. I've only seen a few of your posts. None of them
    contributed anything to the newsgroup. None of them were in any way
    interesting. Point me to something that makes you a more valuable
    contributor to the newsgroup than Rita.

    Also, provide some basic information about yourself. Do you have a
    camera? If so, do you have any problem locating 110 film? Do you
    enjoy looking at photographs? If so, in what magazine? Have you been
    successful in hiding those magazines from your mother?

    Of course not, but a 6D(?) can be better than a 1DsMkIII and still inferior
    to a 1DsMkIV.
    None of their model lines will ever stay still, or people would have no need
    to upgrade :)

  9. Actually, there is high intelligence in evidence. Just very misguided.
    Sometimes a hoot, usually a lot of bombast, frequently gutter-mouthed.

    I told "Rita" to stay around for at least three years, and that was two
    years ago.

    Evidence? How about the ability to read the posts and a little common

    You will probably feel differently when a replacement is available for
    you to buy.

    It's so easy to say "I don't feel an urgent need for a replacement"
    when no such replacement is available.
    Tony Polson, Jan 28, 2008
  13. And your contribution here is what, exactly?

    Rita Berkowitz, Jan 28, 2008
  14. Don't confuse need with want.

    Rita Berkowitz, Jan 28, 2008
  15. Maybe not! The manufacturers have already played the MP card and all are
    now starting to play the high-ISO performance card. Canon will probably get
    to play the 5D crowd for one more revision, that's all. And as good as
    Nikon's D300 is there are a lot of D200 owners that didn't upgrade even with
    the better high-ISO performance increase. Of course, the D300 had many more
    improvements over the D200.
    Or it says that present dSLRs are offering a level of performance and
    feature sets that satisfy most users. The only way these users are going to
    buy new models for the sake of buying them are if the manufacturers offer
    something really earth shattering. This is even starts one to question the
    18-month rule. Will subsequent models be offered at an interval of less
    then 18-months and/or consumers going to buy into the present planned
    obsolescence scheme or ignore it and keep their dSLRs for 24-36 months?

    It's quite normal for users not to upgrade to the next version of body
    anyway, but to skip one or two versions before upgrading.

    However, that aside (as it's not important), it also depends on what you are
    shooting. What if you weren't a current 5D user and was fairly happy with
    your current body, but was considering upgrading. The current 5D had some
    features that would restrict you, but also had some great features that you
    desired? Wouldn't you wait to see what the immanent replacement had to
    offer first?

    I find nothing here, or anywhere, from you that is "contributory" or
    "interesting." Point me to what I have missed.
    Just ridiculous but, considering the source, as expected.

    And the difference for the manufacturer is what exactly? Only the marketing

    That's what I've done (300D/Rebel to 400D/xti), and as much as I'd like to
    have the 450D, I think its going to have to wait for the 500D (or perhaps
    50D). I've been happy with the 400D, so I shouldn't suddenly become unhappy
    with it overnight with the news of the release of a camera I don't own (and
    I'm not!).

  20. True, and Canon can only put so much lipstick on the same old pig before the
    rubes get wise. This is why loyal Canon shooters have integrated the D3
    into their system to ultimately drop Canon.
