The important thing is Canon's admission its customers need more MP.
I wouldn't interpret it this way, imho Canon just stated the obvious - *some* (select) applications like studio or maybe landscape work might need higher resolution, just as higher dynamic range only benefits just a part of photogs. In no way they're up to questioning their past product policy, so certainly no killer 5d4 in sight.
I'm curious to understand who wouldn't benefit from higher DR?
Everybody can benefit in certain situations. But there is a difference between wanting it and needing it. Some people need it, some just want it, and some don't care. It's like having a car that can do 110 miles per hour. If the fastest you ever drive is 65 miles per hour, then you're all set as your car does a splendid job of going 65 miles per hour, and it's reliable and has a bunch of other features you like. Now your neighbor comes along and he says his car can do 150 miles per hour. Wow, that is an awesome spec, clearly better right?! So you start to feel jealous and think about buying the same car as your neighbor. But will it make a difference in your life such as when you drive to work? Well, there are in fact situations in which it may be a benefit to have the neighbor's car. But you may also rationally conclude that your car serves you extremely well and will continue to do so, even though it's "limited" to just the old-style 110 miles per hour.
I don't think anyone here is ever going to complain about an increase in DR. In fact when Canon leapfrogs Sony on DR, we will all be boasting
I'm not jumping ship for anything I've seen yet in other DSLRs. But video stuff from Sony looks promising.
that's why i compared them to religious zealots, because even if you are in the middle, not actively pro or against...you are against because you are not gun ho pro....
