You know, I fail to understand statements like that. Yes, Nikon is producing some really wonderful cameras, especially in the D300 and the D3 and their lens offerings are wonderful.

But the 1DMKIII is very competitive with the D3 at a slightly lower price. For the type of user it is aimed at, the 1DMKIII could be a better choice for some than the D3, though for a Nikon shooter with a bag full of great lenses the D3 is heaven sent.

And the 1DsMKIII is still without competition. At the low end, the XSi is a very fine camera, at least as good as the competition in this market segment and arguably perhaps a bit ahead.

How in the world does this imply that Canon is "playing catch-up?"

(who is not a Canon fanboy and who is happy to see great competition coming from nikon and sony and pentax and perhaps others.)
