Patience and remember. Canon really does not have an option but to improve the resolution of their sensors. The 800e has placed a lot of pressure on the 5D line and the 7100 has done that for the Canon APS-C line of cameras.

I don't think so. In my part of the world, Canada's Wet Coast, according to my GAS dealer (gear acquisition syndrome) who sells both Canon 5DMk3 and D800, he sells 3 5DMk3 for every D800.

Please note that this is not a study, but an anecdotal fact. One store (one of the biggest in the area) and one sales guy. Mileage may vary in your part of the world.

I don't have any data, but I suspect that is the case where I live.  There have always been lots and lots of Canon DSLRs.  That trend is likely to continue but as new photographers enter the market the competition is likely to pickup more users.  Right now the big box camera ads and in store displays don't seem to favor Canon.  New buyers often look at megapixels and kit costs.  Nikon looks a lot better.  I know some landscape photographers who have dumped their Canon gear and switched to the 800e.  I would guess those numbers are lost in insignificance but that will grow unless Canon moves forward.  We do know their will be a very large MP Canon full frame coming in the next year or so.  There have been enough leaks from the paid Canon photographers so we can be sure that will happen.
