What is Nikon's top of the line body? Is it the D4s or is it the 810?
Hint... The D4s is $6500 and the D810 is under $3K.
Nikon's top of line camera, as well as Canon's often have lower MP than their next-in-line - hence 18MP for the 1Dx and 22 MP for the 5D MK III
the 1Ds MK III was 21MP and the 1D MK IV was 16 MP, so Canon has the history in the 1D body of having a more all around and then a Studio / high MP model. The 1Dx was sort of a change.
So sorry, from what the rumor is and what placement makes sense, if this is a high MP studio body then this is competing against the D4s and it would be 1Dx vs D4 and 1Dxs vs D4s
Something tells me Nikon fanboys don't like that comparison.
If you think a high MP low frame rate studio/landscape body is competing against a low MP high frame rate sports body just because they're priced similarly then I'm not sure what to say to you. Does that mean that the 7D2 is competing against the A7R because the price is similar? Or that the 17 TS-E is competing against the 70-200VRII?
No. My point is that from what it sounds like, this may be the 1Ds replacement, i.e. their top line Studio / Landscape hence why I was comparing to the D4s.
I am comparing flagship to flagship regardless of spec. When the 1Dx came out it looked to be a bridge between the 1D and 1Ds lines and it maybe that Canon just needed some more time.
The D810 is a decent camera but is more on par as a high MP version of the 5D MKIII
you want to compare the FPS of the D810 to the 1Dx? How about ISO? AF?
The camera rumored is sounding like a 1Ds hence the natural comparison is either the or the D4s or maybe the aging D3x
the D810? Pfffffffffft
