Loyal Canon Buyer - Can't wait any longer, going with D800
Sep 23, 2012

I shoot mostly landscape, own an Epson 7900 and Epson R2400, and do large prints up to 24x36. I've had a 1DS Mark II since 2005 and, except for the dust problems, have absolutely loved it. I have a series of lenses, including 24-70 and 100-400, which I am also largely happy with. The main things I want from Canon are more resolution (because my 24x36 prints are a bit stretched) and dust relief. The dust relief w/o substantial resolution improvement in what Canon has offered between 2005 and now just haven't been enough to induce me to buy another body. Now that Photokina has come and gone without hitting my two sweet-spot areas in one body, geez, I just can't wait any longer... sigh... I think I'm going for a D800 with Nikon's 24-70... auto-focus issues and all...
