Re: 5dIII a DUD for landscape photographers

please wake up; companies like Canon make money by volume, not with niche products like cameras that are only sold to professionals (like most of all the Canon 1D series or similar Nikon models). Most of the people buying 5D/5D2 type camera's were NOT pro's, they are mostly consumers/prosumers with money, who are willing to pay for better image quality (resolution etc. is far more an issue for landscape and architecture than for weddings, the 'making money' part is irrelevant).

Maybe the 5D3 is going to be an exception, but I know for sure that most of the sales of 5D/5D2 in my area were NOT to 'pros' (and I'm pretty sure the wedding shooters were only a small minority of these buyers).
