Re: 5dIII a DUD for landscape photographers

To me, it seems that Canon made great improvements to the 5DIII, and I am actually very excited about the camera. For myself, it is the perfect camera that I can afford (or at least close enough that I don't feel like switching to Nikon).

However, I can see where those needing higher resolution could be upset.

I think the problem that Canon made for itself is that when it released the 5DII, it became the "high megapixel camera", and it attracted a lot of customers who wanted more megapixels. Those who needed super AF or high FPS used a different camera. Now, Canon has shifted gears with the 5DIII, and the target audience has shifted along with it. This has left a lot of 5DII owners feeling betrayed.

Canon could have done better by calling this camera a 3D, and releasing a 5DIII with more megapixels.
