    I wonder why the Canon multilayer-sensor-camera don’t hit the market.

    I get a lot of mails from professional photographers that don’t want spend money on a 5Ds or 5Ds R because it’s only a 5D Mark III with a different sensor, two processors and a anti-shake System. They hate the power consumption, that the AF is not working down to – 3 EV and the stupid shutter durability.

    In my eyes the multilayer-sensor-cameras are the future.
