Will Canon's conservative releases be its demise?
It's easy to visualize a trickle down of the gains from the A9 to be placed into the A7Riii or Sony might even release a A9R for those that want a larger body (a common complaint about mirrorless).
The 5Div was a modest upgrade from Canon, however, with the A9 I think Canon would need to canablize their own sales to prevent Sony from taking over more of the market share.
Since the 6D2 is on the horizon, how does Canon release a model that won't eat into the sales of the 5Div but also answer Sony's recent marketing pressure?
Sony has shown of late that they are clearly looking to capture more of the market with the gains they've made through R&D.
I only bring this up because I face a predicament.
I have an aging 6D that needs to be replaced and I haven't invested too much into Canon L glass yet.
