Many Canonites had dismissed the D800 simply because it had 'too many mp's,' would slow down pp, files take up too much space etc. All valid considerations, but I'm guessing more than a few of those people would suddenly consider this Canon LOL. I was also thinking how come those people not complaining this high MP camera.
As someone who see's the d800 as more of a want than a need, I view this rumored spec list in the same vein. Would it be awesome, sure, but unless the type of work I do were to change a lot, it would make no sense to shift to bigger mp's.
And why would I complain, or anyone else that works in lots of low light situations? Whats there to complain about. It's not like Canon is pulling the 5d3 and the 1dx from the shelves and issuing recalls so we have to own this MP beast. This new camera will fill a needed niche, one that is very vifferent than lets way the niche for hte mk3 and 1dx (which are actually in different niche's as well, not that the 1dx wouldn't be an amazing camera for weddings, but, it is more of a sports body). So 1dx is sports and superior low light machine. 3D (or whatever they call it is the studio/landscape shooter beast, and the 5dmk3 is the wedding/event shooters tool of choice. Why would we complain? It actually makes sense, and, it finally gets all the big mp fans to stop complaining about how the 5d3 sucks and is a gimmick and is over priced (all things I don't agree with)
