And then it just got worse.

You're all wrong. Only the D810 is a pro camera and you all know it!
No! GoPro! The name says it all.... Go Pro.....
Nobody would mount 29 D810's to their car, but they would (and did) with GoPro
Not surprisingly you're of course guessing.
?? I made clear on what I was guessing - to what extent it was either D800 or possibly other Nikon models helped Nikon land OK sales 2013/14) the rest are from Nikon/Canon financial releases - which therefore should be painfully accurate - and a statement from Nikon that D800 sales where very good 2013/14.
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.
If Canon’s last opportunity to compete at high MP expires, it may very be the beginning of a downward spiral for the company as more and more Canon users are exposed to Nikon and become comfortable being members of its “family.”
It’s hard to understand Canon’s reasons or strategy (or lack of it) on this but it’s likely to prove to be mistake that ends up seriously harming the company’s market share for all other DSLR products.
