When does diffraction kick in on a 50mp 35mm sensor?! How would this be good for landscapes or studio shots where you stop down? Wouldn't scaling up a lower mp shot probably look the same?
Diffraction is always present. So I don't know what "kicks in" means.
These would be about 4 micron pixels. Here's a chart for how diffraction affects MTF.
5DIII has way better focusing system than the 5DII. You will get better pictures with the III right away.
I know video is much more important these days, so STM is a nice get, but as a strictly stills shooter this trend is alarming. The has-to-happen-eventually EF 50mm f/wehavenoidea IS that will replace the 50 f/1.4 USM had better retain USM focusing or I'll have to buy that Sigma's blasted pickle jar as my next 50. Focusing speed is a big deal!
What ahsanford said. I would LOVE to see a high-resolution, high-dynamic-range FF body for landscape shooting. I don't care about video, high stills frame rate, fancy autofocus. Right now I am very happy with my 6D, but would like the additional DR and resolution offered by the Nikon D810 sensor. Some of the MF MA film era legacy (literally) lenses I use would have to be upgraded, no doubt, but I am in the process of doing so anyway. AIS Nikkor 50 f/1.2 and 55 f/3.5 1:2 macro and 105 f/2.5 would become Sigma Art 50 and maybe the Canon 100 2.8L IS macro (I have and really like the 180 f/3.5L macro, but it is heavy on a long hike with a bag of other lenses).
