"Landscape photographers, those shooting billboards, some select studio work and enthusiast that just have to have it."
wrong. Not sure why landscape photographers need any more detail than anyone else? Do you assume detail in grass and clouds are more important than detail in skin, clothes, product photography, art reproduction? Also billboards need relatively low resolution due to the massive viewing distance and low dpi they are printed at. You print something on a crappy home printer and then stand back 50 meters and see if you are worried about noise or grain. And lastly you will find a high megapixel camera ( like the 5d3 is for them now) will sell very well, not just for the enthusiast. More for any photographer who needs flexibility in how the images, ability to shoot RAW video and general better ergonomics compared to the bulkier less flexible medium format system. If I were at Phase, Hasselblad, Mamiya etc I'd be worried... very worried by what Canon will likely come out with. A game changer like the 5D3 was.
