With regard to the D700 issue, what I believe they should have done instead of the DF was the D800 body with the D4 sensor in.

The DF is an outlier in terms of appeal (as any number of discussions on forums etc will demonstrate) whereas the D800 with D4 sensor would not have been.

Canon are a much bigger company than Nikon and spend more on marketing.

At the end of the day there's little enough space between them at the top in IQ terms that it comes down to what system you or your employer is vested in already as much as anything else.

The Df is consciously consumer product. Think of it as an expensive mirrorless alternative. It goes after the same market and/or people who might buy a Leica and definitely is not a PJ tool.

to put it another way, it's irrelevant to this question. It isn't for the same market, nor is it a problem in the context of the question.

graham is also a bit of a lies, damn lies, and statistics merchant by the way. Take his posts with a pinch of salt. He picks facts to suit his argument (everyone does this to an extent, but he does nothing else).
