Were there even any Nikon landscape photographers before when 12MP was considered the "magic number"?

In conclusion, the 5D III is a full framed 7D. There was no answer to the price, especially when compared to the D800. I think the reps knew this, but couldn't answer it publicly, I think the look in their eyes said enough. D800 has the edge in all areas, but IQ on the D800 may be just as good, if not slightly better. It is not a low light camera, the same is said for the D800.
As I understand, the reason for Canon to ditch f8 was to design the autofokus system for higher preciscion.
So while Nikon on paper seems to be better with f8 sensitivity perhaps Canons system will be both faster and more accurate!?
If this is the case I would give a slight edge to Canon in AF. Autofocus to f5.6 us used all the time but how often is f8 needed. For some it is probably very important, and its bad for them, but the majority would probably never need f8.
I think for those who are focal limited and want more reach the low resolution of only 22MP is at least a equal severe problem as missing f8. Nikon will here have a "potential focal multiplier" of 1.28 in body.
