I think the pricing is a big mistake on canon's part. It's not about quality. It's not about better dynamic range and it's not about canon making the decision to prefer IQ over megapixel wars. It's simply a matter of cost.

I suspect the majority of folks will feel the same.

I suspect this might be true. £3,000 (UK) is a very high price tag. I'm lucky enough to be able to afford it, but I can't imagine many amateurs stretching to that figure. However, I don't have access to the market research that Canon has presumably done, so maybe they know something I don't.
