Kind of strange, Justin. Somebody must have deleted his/her posts.
FYI, the Canon will go for around $8 grand, which makes the Nikon look cheap.
You made some interesting points, but I'm wondering how many of us need 30x40 prints very often. Anything short of that, and the last generation of cameras will do quite nicely. (Perhaps the new Fuji, which addresses the highlight issue, is attacking the quality matter from another perspective.)
Still: Do these cameras help people see any better? Are they more conducive to getting great photos?
