Oh yay.

Now even the very entry level digital cameras from Nikon have more megapixels than any digital camera from Canon.

I'd like Canon's response to Nikon's two latest releases to be as such:

1. 7D mk2…..Stills only upgrades with ISO improvements, dual cards and same AF as 5D3, no video improvements (keep target price range)
2. T4i/70D…..video AF with 7Dmk1 AF trickle down. CF Card.

Improve the IQ, Improve the NR, Improve the ISO across the board and do it without getting MP crazy.

AGREE 200% ;D

Please explain why MP is all that matters.
Before the D800 21mp was enough. (read the forum topics before the D800 release)

Now after the release of the D800 the 22mp on the 5D mark iii is a shame !

I can't believe so many people are driving themselves crazy with this MP race.
Oke some will benefit from more MP with the D800.

But 98% of us will not.
Then the try to prove that they need more MP and DR by showing us a cat or dog jpg with a width of 800 pixels.
Sure.

The image quality of the 12MP of the Canon 450D was not even close to the 12MP of the Canon 5D classic.

So there is still MP and MP.

Of course it is not *all* that matters. But it helps with cropping when using a prime and macro shots, changing aspect ratio and different framing in post-processing, easier framing while shooting because cropping doesn't let you drop into too low mp regions.

Improve the IQ, Improve the NR, Improve the ISO across the board and do it without getting MP crazy.

With the 5d3 in the same mp range than the 5200, it can hardly be argued that 24mp is crazy, at least if Sony's sensor tech keeps delivering and the noise (at least when downsized to 18mp = Canon aps-c) and dr are within reason.

I don't think we'll see much of a 650d soon if Canon was as surprised by this as they seemed by the d800 - with the aps-c line being made for dlsr first-timers that don't have a lens zoo to keep and can easily "jump ship", imho the 600d is toast. Apart from running magic lantern, that is.

it will be funny for first time dslr buyers comparing the 1100d to the d3200 it has double the mps XD
