Why are people reading NAB press releases in any fashion related to still photography?
NAB = National Association of BROADCASTERS...
As for EOL jumping ship, I know four of them personally and NONE have migrated to any other brand so I call BS on that statement.
Jay - Your loyalty to Canon is laudable. It hasn't been easy for me to watch as Canon continues to sit on the sidelines while Nikon produces superior cameras. I still think Canon has the edge on glass, but they are lagging behind in high-end sensors for still photography.
You're at Oshkosh, is Canon? I checked the EAA website and while they list Nikon, they don't list anything for Canon. Maybe I'm misinformed, but it is my understanding that Canon no longer participates in Oshkosh - why?
Lastly, calling BS on my statement regarding EOL defection simply does not wash. I know three EOL folks that have jumped ship to Nikon. One is Seth Resnick. You can read about his rationale here: http://www.d-65.com/blog/coming-home-to-nikon-the-story-behind-the-story/ - decide for yourself. Besides the EOL folks, there are plenty of hard working professional shooters that own a ton of Canon gear and are now buying Nikon.
I hope Canon proves me wrong. I hope they introduce a new camera that rivals or exceeds the performance of Nikon's D800 and D810 cameras. Heck, they've had plenty of time to come up with something. We will see if there is more disappointment from Canon at Photokina this September or if they finally try to be competitive with Nikon? Even if they do intro a rival for the D810, let's see how long it takes Canon to go from announcement to having cameras in the market. Their performance on delivery for the 1DX was not impressive. Again, I'd love for Canon to prove me wrong. That being said, I've stopped holding my breath waiting for the proof.
