The problem I have with jumping ship is that there is no perfect system out there and Canon may be 'down' in the megapixel race for now but what happens when they are ahead again at some later stage, do I jump ship again??
the fact is that my stuff does the job quite well at the moment as it is, and here I am talking about making a living from architecture, industrial, portrait, corporate and advertising photography. For the pro stuff I have never felt the need to jump ship. Its for my own personal photography where I am more critical and here I would love to have a denser sensor ( rhymes quite nicely...!)
I was quite keen on the A7r as a resolution solution (!) but have been put off reports of inferior sensor quality with third party wide angle lenses in the edges..but nothing is to say these problems wont be fixed in the future, perhaps even before we see this 'fabled' megapixel monster from our 'love to hate ' camera brand !
As business is not all that great at the moment I have no desire , (or money!), to buy anything 'better' in any case.
So for the moment if I want a bit higher resolution than my 6d can give I haul out my vintage 2006 Mamiya ZD!
Which makes me think that try as we might there isn't really just one camera solution out there and like the days of old when every photographer had 35mm, medium format and 4x5/8x10 camera systems, perhaps we should view the current camera offerings in the same light, a Sony compact for pocked duties, a CaNikonSony for everyday and the Pentax 645 for when that extra resolution jump is essential...of course those with deeper pockets list will have some more exotic brands on it!
