Wiil the A7r impact Canon's plan for a high mp camera?
Oct 17, 2013

If rumors are close to the truth then Canon's D800 competitor will be a very high mp, very high DR , ultra expensive, 1DX-bodied camera.

Hope that isn't true because my guess is that a large part of that potential market has been impacted by the A7r.

I also think the A7r will prevent Nikon from raising the D800 price and may actually force Nikon to reduce it.

How much of a market would there be for this ultra high-end Canon?

I know that SONY does not have the system to compete with Canikon but not everyone that wants a high-res camera wants all the specialty lenses they offer.

Thoughts?
