    They need to honor it by releasing a EOS 3D that is the spiritual successor to this size pro camera. Something that will kick the stuffing out of the Nikon D850, essentially a 1DXII in a normal sized DSLR but with many new features, 36MP, 10fps, same top plate as 1DXII, so button not knobs, full gaskets and sealing, next gen AF, all the features of a D850 like focus shift, etc etc, priuce it at $3999.
