Canon's takeaway should be:
1. quickly reduce price of 5D3 below price of competitors' superior product
It sounds like you think the D800 is superior to the 5DIII. Do you believe that Canon thinks the D800 is superior to the 5DIII? Is the D800's frame rate superior? Is the D800's AF system better? Does the D800 have higher available ISO settings (both base and expanded)? I trust you are aware that there is more to a camera than the sensor, and more to the sensor than it's DR and dark noise... Unless the D800 substantially outsells the 5DIII, Canon's takeaway will be...."Yay, we won, go Canon..."
Agree with you here. Not to take anything away from Nikon, but the whole arguement is about the 'superior' sensor. Like you said what about the 5DIII's frame rate, AF & high ISO? It's like saying my race car is superior to yours because I have 1200HP compared to your 900HP, not taking into consideration the rest of the mechanics or the driver.
