Yeah. How did Nikon's high MP body do on the market?
D800 did really well according to Nikon its (unclear how this translates into sales numbers).
It may indeed have helped them avoid the first wave of falling DSLR sales. According to the official accumulated numbers and sales forcasts released by Nikon and Canon, Nikon did (relatively) somewhat better than Canon 2013/14. However, 2014/15 Nikon is likely to fall as much as Canon (last estimate is -12.5% DSLR sales year-to-year). We can only guess here, but maybe brisk D800 sales helped avoid Nikon going into the double digit sales dive already last year (as Canon did).
70D is Canon's best selling camera in 2014 so far.
Not surprisingly you're of course guessing. Nikon doesn't release data per model. We do know in the first year the 5d3 whipped the d800 in sales on amazon, but that's ALL we know.
