Let us know about the glass you are selling from the Canon days. As long as they aren't FD mounts they work great for video on our DSLRs since we have to use manual modes anyway. Many of us here would be interested in the glass so give us a shot at it before dumping it on eBay. Then you know it all goes to happy homes.
I think I remember that discussion you mentioned a few years back. I wouldn't care if it really did turn into that full bore. I remembered one person mentioning the day may be coming where a team is hired to cover photo/video almost like a movie with a director calling the shots. I wouldn't care if I was part of that team covering video as long as I was making good money doing what I like. It would be the same but we would just have better tools. The day is still not here where we can just shoot video footage and take those super high rez stills from the footage. We are still limited to 1920x1080 stills directly from footage. We can take a still with a DSLR while shooting video but we get a momentary pause in our video so it is not always a good thing. Even if we had a Red camera and could grab stills from it in max resolution they would still be smaller than todays 18-25mp still cams. We are alot closer and heading the direction of your prediction but not quite there yet.
