Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Still waiting for high MP canon while Nikon is coming out with new 800« on: May 23, 2014, 09:50:16 AM »
I've waited a long time for Nikon to recapture the lead on Nikon and their 36 mp camera. And now I read that Nikon will introduce an upgrade to the 800e in June. Why am I not jumping ship? I do have a lot of canon glass and have been a local customer. I own the mk III and 6d and I love the images .BUTT, COME ON ALREADY cCanon. Get your stuff together!The thing I wonder about your post and others like it is - how many people "need" 36+ MP? Sure, it's always nice to have more than you need, but unless you have the very best lenses - Canon Mk II big whites, Zeiss Otus 55 & Zeiss 135 f/2, etc., there will be little increase in actual resolution. It would help a lot with cropping and would equalize the FF vs. crop war for wildlife...but again, only with the very best lenses and technique. I've printed many large prints at 40x60 or larger at 300dpi (that's around a 3x enlargement for 5DII files) and found little to complain about. Most people share photos at 1600x1200 or less online and rarely, if ever, print anything over 8x12"...but these are the people who often scream the loudest over their inadequate megapixel bodies!
While we wait for more MP, I'll keep shooting what I've got and won't lose any sleep over my 18 and 22 MP bodies
They "need" it because Nikon has it and Canon doesn't.
