Do they care?   Do they even have a plan to produce some sort of completion to the d800?

Um...they released the 5D2 which was a studio/high resolution camera at the time.
All politicians are scum
5D3, 5D2, 7D and too many lenses

Or the 5D3 or the 1DX.  Or the tethered version of the 7D come to think of it.

Good grief, the 1DX and the 7D can hardly be considered 'studio/resolution orientated cameras'. 18MP, and one of them is crop.

The 7d studio version?  Google it, and then pass your critique onto canon.  Good grief! Indeed.

I certainly hope not, I bought a D800, and it outperforms the lenses, and takes forever to process images.
 
How do you define studio resolution?  When there was only a 3mp body?, 6mp, 8mp, 12mp, 16mp, 22mp, ???  100mp?
 
It takes 6mp to 8mp to make a quality print.

couldn't have said it better than mt spokane.  but i'll still type something. the term studio would relate to some super high MP camera, well that MP number is always changing, yet studios have been around for a good long while before the d800 landed. maybe we should just feel happy for the nikon shooters as canon has OWNED them for a good long while. they are used to us having 2x the mp as them. perhaps they went to far for some. past the sweet spot of computer power/storage/photodiode size/speed. Have you ever seen the junk nikon had before the D3? besides, 35mm cameras aren't for super high res anyway, said "studio" might rather have a MF camera with a leaf shutter system.

Well they hadn't released any FF action cam since the pre-DSLR days, all it was was studio cam after studio cam, so you ain't be waiting as long as the folks who wanted some speed and AF! You had your landscapes with the 1Ds2 then 5D then the 1Ds3 then the 5D2. Finally the 5D3 brings some EOS 3 to the table (although yeah bumping up the sensor DR wouldn't have hurt since you'd have your low ISO landscape upgrade right there too then and as I do also do lots of landscapes yeah that woulda made it more fun than a barrel of wombats).

Remember folks, the most important feature of any camera made ever is the MEGAPICKLES. If it isn't extremely large then by all means, the camera is just absolutely worthless. You cannot, under any circumstances, have a studio quality camera unless you have higher MEGAPICKLES than that your competitor.

Megapickles are nuffink without a good lens, I met a photographer with a bloody hassle of a camera (I think he said) and he reckoned the best lens was by Dr Zuess.

The idiot is saying it has to be full frame, and 22MP is old hat.   Of course all the leaf and phase one shooters are just pissing themselves.   But he won't be able to see that.

How does a leaf shutter system work and what benefits does it have? Also, anybody know where i can find out about the low end medium format market approx 2 to 5 thousand?

Thing is, the same basic question can be asked of Canon's entire line.. why make a 5D3? Why even make a 5D2?  After all pretty much all of the rebels handle HD video,  why would people want more?  It doesn't take 4K to make youtube videos.

I think in the end, people want to feel like the company is addressing their particular segment.  While any of the modern cameras can do the job, Canons current lineup of video cameras and multimedia cameras really are just not geared towards studio photographers.  Of course they can be shoehorned into it, but it will always feel like an awkward 'second class market segment' fit.

Why have new technology when the 1DS3 can still deliver top IQ studio pictures?
