              It's weird these "No focus motor" in Canon cameras information: all the lens have focus motor, no camera body has focus motor. How can this be part of "Common Weaknesses" in Canon cameras? Do you really think Nikon bodies with focus motor are the best cameras in the world, something all cameras want to be when they grow up?
