| p.4 #16 · The most controversial Canon ever? |
I think the camera that has caused the most controversy on this Canon board is the Nikon D700. We were assaulted by people saying Nikon had built the Canon 3D that we wanted, that Canon was too fixated on megapixels, that Nikon AF "just worked", that it was time to switch systems, blah blah. Now I see people on the Nikon board frothing at the mouth over problems with the D800. There are always problems, life goes on.
(I'm happy with my Canon system of lenses, love my 5D3 and 1DX. They're tools, not works of art, but I enjoy them and rely on them. And yes, I have at times had frustrations with various Canon cameras.)
As for the poll, I voted 1DIII because it seemed at the peak of the controversy that a huge number of forum members had the impression it was a piece of crap, less worthy than a Rebel. In fact, though there were AF shortcomings, it was capable of grabbing fast action shots that few other cameras of its day could manage, and the IQ was terrific. "Only" 10 MP, yet prints could really impress.
