Bitch, Bitch, Bitch over camera prices. Have any of you priced MF lately. At $9000USD a 46 MP Canon camera is a bargin in comparision. MF starts over $12,000 + lenses and Hassys and others wind up around $40/50 Thousand USD.
You whiners go back to your 5DIIIs and quit knocking the Hi MP. The 1DSIII was $8700USD when released (12/2007) and I have no regrets even though it hurt.
Yep, but then there is the D800 at 1/3 that price. Really depends on what the market Canon is going after. If they want to lure over the MF crowd, then they better deliver more than just pixels with the new sensor. If they want it more a general high resolution landscape, studio camera competing against the D800, then their price needs to come down big time.
