If Canon's paying you, they should be more picky.

You do realise there are credible rumours of a high megapixel Canon 5DX (Most likely 39.3MP ) coming soon?

If that is true, then Canon should be smart about it and announce officially that such a camera is forthcoming before they start losing customers asking for high megapixels to the Nikon D800/E.

If you're into landscape, high iso capability and fps is not interesting.

Yep.

No problem, just annoyed when trolls like you start trolls threads, diss those who discuss the technical differences between the cameras, and then walk away from the thread.

Let's see your "measurements", here are mine:

If Canon were to announce such a body, what would the price tag be? $6999?

FPS is not interesting if you're into landscape and don't know what auto exposure bracketing is.

As a landscape / nature photographer and aspiring documentary film maker I am in awe of the specs on the Nikon D800 - this seems to be my dream camera body. I prey to the camera gods that Canon will not let itself be outflanked by nikon and use some of the immense profits it has made on the 5D2 to get back in the game with a 40=MegaPixel / 4K Video / Pro Auto Focus 5D3 or 3D.

I have shot Nikon at two occasions in the past with F4 (film days) and the D200 from 2005-2008. I then saw the brilliantly revolutionary Canon 5DII and got one of the first units to arrive in Canada. Love this camera, (aside from the autofocus and auto bracketing) but would like to try larger prints up to 40x60.

I WANT MORE MEGAPIXELS !

My budget doesn't allow for medium format digital (contemplated buying the Pentax 645D) Almost pulled the trigger on a Nikon D800 pre-order with b&h this morning, but have decided to give Canon a chance and see how they respond with the 5D3 or 3d

Unlike a lot of other photographers / videographers I have intentionally hedged my bets keeping half of my lenses in Nikon camp (like the stellar 14-24mm) using them on my canon bodies with the 16-9.com autofocus adapter. My other half of my lens collection is in the Canon L camp. So a switch would not be as painful as it would be for many

In reply to Ah Pek, Mar 3, 2012

To jump Nikon by roughly 10mp would give both companies an excuse to produce near 10k if not over 10k camera bodies IMO. I know I don't want to see those extremely expensive bodies again.

Yup... those seem very faded right about now, but I'm still holding out for that to come true... Initially I thought that the mk3 was just not enough upgrade to make it worth the jump... then read the review again, and am thinkin I'll probably do it.... but will wait a month or two to see if the second cam rumor plays out.... if that 45mp cam still has hobbled autofocus though... it'll be a tough choice.

AS a Landscaper, I don't give a RAT'S ASS about High ISO / Pro Auto Focus

Give me a 40 - 60 Megapixel sensor that has clean, brilliantly detailed ISO 100 and I'll gladly spend $4,000 USD in a heartbeat !
O

For now I'm sticking with the Canon 5D2 - If there is no (D800e Competiter) High Resolution model announced by Photokina, I'm going with the Nikon D800E

Already have the LEGENDARY NIKON 14-24 and EOS to G Adapter
