Poll: 5D3 vs 5DX vs D800

Let's say the 5D3 is as rumored:


But let's say that Canon decides a 5DX is in order to tackle the D800 (e.g. 46 MP FF version of hte 7D / 60D sensor), and the 5D3 sensor isn't any more efficient than the 7D / 60D sensor.

So, Canon releases the 5D3 sometime this March, doesn't say a word about a 5DX, but you're thinking a 5DX might come out in November.

Assuming you have a burning need/desire to upgrade, what would you do?

  • Buy the 5D3

  • Switch systems and buy the D800

  • Wait until November to see what happens, then decide between the 5D3, 5DX (if such a camera is made), and D800 at that time.

Please write "5D3", "D800", or "Wait and see" in the subject line, with explanation in the body.
