Re: 5dIII a DUD for landscape photographers

Why don't you ever think... oooh this camera COULD be more useful with better AF? Or ooh this camera COULD be more useful with more fps? It's the same argument... it's just which one of those specs are more interesting to you.

Well, the 5D line has so far been about focus on high IQ and resolution at the expense of other specifications. And the 5D line has been a success doing that, even though Canon has had others cameras with both better AF and better FPS. It tells me that there are plenty of people who make the same prioritization again - and most of them actually owns a 5D already. So all this talk about there not be a market for a 5D with higher resolution and lower FPS: look at all the existing 5D customers.
