Everybody talks about Canon dying but every pro I have seen uses Canon. Why are people claiming it w

Everybody is hyping up Sony as the brand that will change the market forever and Canon will die out and stuff but after working as an assistant for multiple pro photographers I saw everyone happily shooting canon 5Dm3's and getting amazing results nobody was going to switch simply because there is no need. It does the job and does it reliably. Currently I'm shooting for the Finnish military and guess what cameras we are using? What a surprise canon 5Dm3's and 5Dm4's I think one out of 50-60 photographers in the army is in the Sony system and a few are on lumix. This death of Canon is atleast in my eyes is no where to be seen the switching to Sony is not happening anywhere in the pro market. Only people that I see switching are those reading specs and numbers instead of actually shooting daily.

I just bought a 6D mark II, I have no fear of them dying out.  I tried the 5D but since I already have an 80D I wanted something with the same controls but FF. the 6D is the 80D on steroids.

 

I am happy with my decision

Canon has some rather strange attitudes about what it does and doesn’t equip its cameras with; what lenses it produces, etc, but I think it’s safe to say they’re going to be around for a while.

Me, too.

 

People kid me that I fill up my SUV with camera gear: they think I buy the gear just to fill up my vehicle.

 

Truth is, I bought the vehicle to accommodate the gear.
