I guess it really depends on how we define class leading. Canon is an international business, it's not there to appease techhie geeks, but to provide it's share holders with a reasonable return on their investment. So if we look at the market, the Canon 5DII and 5DIII are big sellers for Canon. But the Nikon D800 isn't shifting any where near as many units. So, which camera is the more commercially viable? If you really feel that the Exmor sensor is more important to you than your current Canon one, then feel free and jump ship. It's the only metric Canon is really concearned with. If enough people buy a D800 and not a 5DIII then it will cause Canon to listen. In the mean time, Canon's market placement has been skillfully played out and the 5DIII is a brilliant product. The only way to get Canon to loose faith in their market research and placement is to show them it's wrong at a sales level.
