canon has some of the sharpest lenses and very few of them outperform 20 megapixel sensors. I would rather have more dynamic rance, and more sensitivity, but sadly megapixel cravers make development go in the wrong direction. give me 18 megapixel with more dynamic range, and crystal clear 12,800 ISO
60D, Sigma 17-70 2.8-4, Tamron 70-300 4-5.6 VC, EF 50mm 1.8II, and a Sigma EF-610 DG superflash
Very few people who cannot afford a medium format camera NEED 40+ megapixels. I personally think the 22 in my 5D Mk ii is overkill for about 90% of my work and I print 24x36 portraits.
I am glad to see that near the bottom of this page someone actually pointed out that Canon's glass couldn't resolve a 40+ megapixel image ANYWAY.
I laugh that Nikon has produced a 30+ MP camera because I believe Canon's glass is as good as (if not slightly better than) Nikon's glass and Canon's glass is maxed at about 24-25mp resolving power. Nikon is going to have to update their ENTIRE line of pro lenses to accommodate a 30+ MP sensor. BA-HAHAHA, Morons who buy a 30+ MP Nikon deserve what they get (which will be quality BARELY better than the current D3x)!!!
If you would have had (like i just experienced) the D800E in a portrait studio shooting..... and looked at the files from both cameras side by side... .......you would understand why we want more megapixel
I love my 5D mk III, but in that contest the D800 was clearly superior
When the 5DIII launched, there were over 1800 people on this site in that 1-day period. The petition you link has been up for a day and now has a whopping 35 signatures. If Canon even becomes aware the effort, such a lackluster response might not exactly send the message you're hoping for...
