It was lack of IBIS that was the deal killer for I.

If it doesn’t have IBIS it will be a total waste of time — let alone money. 

Just last week, as you can see above, Canon’s CEO said that they expect the camera market to FALL 50% by next year! That is a HUGE drop in sales, BUT easy to see. Smartphones are making cameras obsolete. Even I, a camera buff, use my Google Pixel 2 much more than my two high-end cameras! Yes, I plan to get a new full-frame mirrorless soon, but I am in that shrinking pool of folks still interested in buying a real camera.

So, I am keeping a very close eye on this upcoming Canon announcement. I will, of course, keep you posted.
