    Its obvious, you find the wizard or witch that did this, and have them flogged! Then burned at the stake!!!

    As I use MFT, if Olympus stopped making cameras, I should start looking at Panasonic for a potential replacement for my EM5 - so naturally I selected "None of the above".

    God forbid Canon should ever decide to cease production! but I have owned other makes in the past so with no choice then it would mean starting again with anything but a Nikon or a Leica.

    Well since I'm dreaming of an upgrade which would require changing systems (my lenses are EF-S only and the features I need aren't on full frame Canons) then perhaps it'd make me save a little quicker!

    Once again your survey question is only really relevant to people who buy new equipment and have been seduced by the manufacturers' insistence on regular upgrading to the latest ‘must have’ model.
    There is a fantastic choice of excellent used equipment available from the regular advertisers in AP, most of which will work perfectly for many years use if treated carefully.
