    Haha, I thought so too, but that’s how Canon named their video. I guess they wanted to show where the Canon 5D Mark II came from or something

    It is the evolution of Canon DSLR not SLR, if it was they shouldn’t have included there DSLR’s.

    If you have a video showing the evolution of humans should you name it the evolution of micro-organisms?
