Re: How much longer will EF be around?

"One should not have to buy the flagship product to get useful weather sealing,..."

 

Cost vs performance. It costs money to add features like weather sealing.  Gaskets that cover every possible opening doesn't come free.  A Rebel that had the weather sealing of a 1 series or even a 5 series would cost considerably more. How much is the Rebel buying consumer willing to pay?  I don't know, maybe they would. Canon obviously doesn't think so.

Dude?

 As for "pro" offerings, none of these companies would likely survive for long if they had to depend mostly on pros.

 

On the contrary my dude friend, the low end market has almost totally evaporated. Basically enthusiasts and pro are all that is left.  Sony makes no pro gear remember!
