I want a high MP camera, but the upgrade will be just as useless as the 5D3, if the dynamic range is not dramatically improved.
I really hope that Canon will some day understand this simple fact. Higher MP is good, but higher DR is the true king.
Heck I'd even settle for the 22MP 5D3 if it's DR had been upgraded!
With Westfall already defending the lack of significant MP bump in the 5D3 by stating 22 "is enough", and then expounding by claiming limited megapixels allow for higher FPS burst rates - I have begun losing faith in Canon. So now I'm supposed to believe the stagnant MP count was all part of Canon's genius plan to transform the 5D line into an action shooter's camera?? WTF?!?! I don't need 6FPS in a studio/event/landscape camera you jagoffs!
And now with the latest rumor that Canon will be releasing a "high MP body" by the end of this year, it's clear that they dropped the ball on the 5D3, are scared sh*tless by the d800, and a scrambling to cover their ass before everyone jumps ship to the dark side. "Nono no... hold on JUuuuust a minute... we have a high MP body in the works... it's coming... you know... hopefully by Christmas and such. Meerrrrrrrr!"
Man - this is starting to turn into a huge embarrassment for big C. I wish this was all just a bad dream. Talk about being caught with your pants down. Canon thought Nikon would never dare to cram so many pixels onto a sensor. Now that they have - and got sick images as a result - they look like fools. I'll tell you this - Nikon was pretty damn good at keeping the d800 secret if Canon really never saw this coming - which is starting to look like what happened.
I'll tell you what - I won't be the guinea pig on Canon's 40+MP project crammed out in 8 months in response to Nikon. That's not R&D ... that's playing catch up.
