Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Still waiting for high MP canon while Nikon is coming out with new 800« on: May 24, 2014, 03:45:31 PM »
Nikon did (with help from Sony), and the Canon model in the same price bracket sells better. You can ignore the realities of the market if you want, Canon will not. There's your 'why' right there.
Thats a very simplified view of "market". For example does the 5D3 sell better because people feel its in a sweet spot, or are there factors like depreciation rules that make a quick switch unviable?
The idea that sales of one particular item within a complete system in the context of a long term commitment is an accurate reflection of how well it fits unbiased customer demands(i.e. thats all we get, so it has to fit) is somewhere between naive and intentionally bad science.
