I wasn't stating that nobody needed more MP, I was pointing out that the numbers we have can be used to very great effect and I don't believe many people need more the vast majority of the time,

Well I do.

It's just what I need for better photo's of my cat. 
I regularly print 4x6 prints of her, and I think the extra MP's will come in handy for downsampling to fix those out of focus shots. 
I'm sure my old Canon MP600 printer will get a new lease of life when these higher quality files come through - I doubt you'll be able to tell that I print on plain paper.

Hurry up Canon, I need this camera!

Hope it has a 'direct print' button.

Seems like a good model to re-introduce the eye-controlled AF.

I thought my TSE-24mm was a hefty piece of lens.

The CN-E 24mm - 1.2 kg  :o

1DSx ?

That could be a potentially unfortunate designation - if it didn't live up to expectations, it would be rapidly renamed the 1DSux.   :P

Great lens (just bought one!).

Good to know about the knobs and the cost of repair.  :o

Big MP would be nice...for some.

But I'd rather see Canon take the Magic Lantern hint and go to town on their firmware.  It's clear that there is massive unrealised potential in that area.

The D800 has left the station..........and Canon passengers are standing on the platform with only a rumour of their train coming.......sometime.  :D

So if DR is that important to you - whether it's for practical reasons or just to placate your ego - admit that Canon is inferior at the moment, and buy yourself a D800 :)

I am now seriously considering selling all of my Canon gear.

First time for me too to consider this in 20 years.  Not that I have a great deal of stuff.

I was going to buy the 5DIII, but have decided that I don't need the upgrade.  Plan B was to use the money saved on a new lens (TS-E 24mm).

5dII plus the TS-E 24 sounded like a great option, but the stellar performance of the D800 is making me wonder......though the Nikon ergonomics tend to put me off.

Lloyd Chambers is saying the D800 is as good as the Leica S2 for IQ.  :o

Needs moar VIVID.

Thanks for the feedback. How about the image overall? Is the subject, lighting, and composition uninspiring enough?

The half lens cap is a little too radical on the composition front........

The in-camera JPG comparison is a valid test if ...

Thanks, nice summary.  Very helpful.

If you wait for a price drop, that wait will turn in to the wait for the 5D4.
When do you expect the 5D4 to be released?  ;)

Chambers' review suggsests the MkIII has a slight green colour cast.

Any one notice this on their new MkIII?

For the first time today, I've actually vaguely considered whether moving to the Nikon D800 might make more sense than upgrading from the MkII to the MkIII.
