Canon is probably having a good laugh at the term "Pre-Release Official Nikon Details"... with those "official" features like the 8.1" diagonal rear LCD. Who needs a Marshall monitor now?

I hope and believe that the Nikon D800 will attract many landscape, arcitecture, studio etc. photographers who currently work with Canon or digital medium format cameras. Canon will pay attention to the sales numbers of the D800.

Hm, "bobby" ...

... those "silentjournalists" just copied NRs picture from the "german Nikon site" and filled the news with their specs and those, they read here.

They did exactly the same last week after the 5D III accident fom afrika promoted at CR and discussed here and filled it with ECF directly after I fantasied about it at FM. I am not sure if I should give them more attention then every else "METOO" rumor site, that jumps on the train to generate traffic on theire sites.

Errr, Canon has known for ages that Sony was developing a 36 MP full-frame-sensor. No news to them.

D800 sounds very nice and will be interested how it performs, especially without AA filter. Should get some stunning detail at low iso for landscape and macro work.

I think it highly unlikely Canon will be folding up anytime soon.

It's highly impossible. Nikon may take 2 steps forward today, but Canon will take a giant leap forward before long. Canon is so big they can swallow Nikon ... but I hope that will never happen as the competition is good for everyone.

12 channel read out and 16-bit processing engine combined with Nikon's already excellent reputation for base ISO performance = yum for the landscape photographer

I've already assembled a killer Leica kit for landscapes in anticipation of an M10 but I think I'll least want to play with this D800.

Canon called me last night when I was shooting an event. They said, "Rob, we're closing down.".

Nikon called me right before and said "Hey Rob, Canon is about to get got."

Nikon always knows, and always manages to leak the information first

Nikon is part of the Mitsubishi conglomerate. I think Canon might have a big problem swallowing them.

Even so, both companies make great cameras and lenses. Some of my best friends shoot Canon.

Well, speaking personally I have so much tied up in Canon glass I am highly unlikely to sell up and buy a Nikon system.

However, my 5D2 and 7D promise to meet my needs for a long time to come, and so Canon's next problem is how to tempt people like me to upgrade.

Keeping or lowering the megapixellage won't do it.
Keeping existing 5D AF won't do it either.

I am sure Canon will get me to part with my money sooner or later, but the question is "when" and "how". The 5D3 or 7D2 would have to offer something very tempting indeed to get me to empty my bank account. I'm not sure what that something could be, but that's Canon's job in a nutshell.

Likewise. As this is mostly just a game of swings and roundabouts i've never consider switching - i've used Nikon (D90 and D700) and Sony (A-55) and i think they're excellent, but not really that much better or worse that i can see a good reason to move from one to another.

Switching without trying out the other brand and comparing it to what you already have is silly. I almost switched to Nikon. But then I went for the mark II instead after renting both camera's. After Canon released the TSE-17 (no Nikon equivalent exists) and the brilliant TSE-24 II I'm more than pleased with my decision.
