Canon 5D III
Mar 2, 2012

Although it is too early to say, it appears as if the Canon has lost this round to Nikon. So far 1D X is largely a paper tiger. The few samples that have appeared hardly bear testimony to its purported potential. Besides, the delay has dampened whatever enthusiasm Canonites had for this flagship. As for 5D III, it is not the anticipated Canon reply to the mighty Nikon D800. Sadly, even the improvements in video appear almost cosmetic when compared to Nikon's implementation. I can now understand why the CEO of Canon resigned recently. Canon now has the arduous task of catching up. Unless it changes its approach and philosophy, it may be marginalized in professional photography.
