funny,

funny you should say that.... in my village there are not many pro's. I know three of which switched systems in the last months. Well, technically I didn't switch, I added a Nikon to my stuff.

You could say half of the pro's in Gorinchem switched

Regardless of test differences in DxO / DP Review / Uncle Tom Cobley and all, very few pros will change from Canon to Nikon (or indeed from Nikon to Canon) for relatively small differences on one camera.

It's amateurs who change wherever the wind blows, not pros who know that sooner or later Canon or Nikon will always have a better camera at some point in time. And service and back up also plays a huge role in any business decision.

Of course someone just getting into professional photography and with no investment in either system might go the Nikon route based on the D800's price / performance.

But if people are expecting floods of cheap used Canon 500/4.0s, and other predominantly 'pro' Canon lenses because of switching, then I think they are going to be disappointed.
