How long you think Canon will maintain its top position?

As long as it doesn't listen to some of the people on Dpreview.com

Is there something very special about DPreview that it only draws certain type of people? Is that why you are hear too?

There was all this moaning about Nikon having 36mp and Canon "only 18" when the 1D-X came out.

D800 does not compete with 1DX, D4 does, which has less MP than 1DX.

Since then there's been a deluge of complaints about various aspects of the D800

So were the complaints about 5D3 - lack of DR, minimal improvement in IQ in all aspects, lack of spot meter outside centre point, inability to see which AF point is tracking subject, light leak etc.

It is not that 5D3 was problem free, 5D3 got them fixed fairly quickly (or people just accepted that is what 5D3 is - DR liminitation for example) while Nikon took a lot longer to get D800 left side AF fixed.

and nothing but endless praise for the 1D-x.

Not much complaints about D4 either.

You see, there are those who only think of resolution, sharpness and "blowing out of the water", and there are those who know what's important in a camera.

And they all went out bought a 1DX?
