It is sad and pitiful that Canon just can't seem to catch up in the DR department.
Ricku, this is the error you keep making: who says they can't? Maybe they just choose not to do so? Remember, Canon is a business and, according to the limited information the public has, their DSLR line-up appears to be profitable. It would be the height of (business) stupidity to throw their best tech into the market until they are forced to do so by their competition. E.g. why would Honda give you an Acura at a Civic price? That's one reason I appreciate the D800 -- it should put some market pressure on Canon.
It's legitimate to be disappointed with the product features, but you can't fault their business decisions. There is nothing "sad and pitiful" about a business making boatloads of money. And furthermore, we have zero information about what tech they could put into their product line.
