But, the 5D effectively KILLED the 1DsIII

I don't fully agree. The 1D is a pro camera used by pros. The 5d 'could' be used by pros who wanted full frame but in a package that was smaller, lighter and less tolerant to abuse. But the real draw for the 5D was to bring enthusiasts and advanced amatuers closer to the dream of an 1d. And Canon have done a very good job of that. Now that a vast number of enthusiasts have bourght into a full frame system, they have to keep feeding their habit.

22MP are mostly not required by anyone. I print alot of A1+ at 13mp ~ 18mp with no issues - even on graduated blue skies. If I was obsessed with trying to capture an image of the flag on the moon, then maybe I'd want more. I prefer keeping file size down.
