EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Split? 5D X & 5D Mark III [CR1]

...Honestly I don't see how they could be THAT out of touch, they have to know that D700 successor would solve the missing MP and video issues and that they can't just sit around and give us some minor little increment.
...

Canon has a history of not producing cameras that will 'eat their lunch'. they let others do that because, so far and until recently,  others have only been nibbling.

Which makes it a company culture almost.

...Hopefully there really is not some deeper reason behind the President of Canon just having resigned...

Canon is not a camera company.  don't anyone forget.   they are a flipping huge conglomerate with many markets to satisfy and a whole lot of internal politics as well.

why the heartburn over file sizes, folks?

I gotta agree with this, all you people who want a slower car go buy a slower car, but stop telling the manufacturer not to make fast cars, because some of us have races to win....

Since we're going with silly analogies --

When your primary goal is to make the fastest car, you make tradeoffs for that car - safety.  cargo capacity, passenger capacity; affordability; comfort

I don't have a race to win, but I do want consistent, quality, focused images that don't need a main frame to process or fiber optics to get images out of the camera.

TODAY. Right Now.  the % of people NEEDING (life depends on it) 35+ megapixel images is a corner case.  if you want one, then you are a part of that corner.  it just so happens its is easy for Canon to address the needs of this corner case and THEN , improve on DR, noise characteristics (note: NOT quantity), improving ISO quality over entire range.

some are asking Canon to slow down the drive for megapixel supremacy  and put the SAME energy into the other aspects of exposure that a camera creates
