I can find dozens of threads and statements from Nikon itself from a few years back saying the same about FF,..
Anyway, I don't disagree,. I'm merely pointing out that it's silly to count the fact that canon offers the variety as a "disadvantage" when we ALL KNOW that in due time we will get the exact same features in an FF option as well.
I will continue to consider this a plus.
Then we agree to disagree. Us and many others.

Can I correct you there? The FF "issue" is made into an issue by those wanting a 1Ds but instead of saving up that bit more, feel that it is their "right" to be able to purchase one for the price they deem appropriate.
1D series does not seem to be about compromise so at the present time (with the present tech), it is good that there is 1D and 1Ds.
I dont agree. I think that Canon could easily do it, easily. They choose not to for commercial reasons. That's fine, but when their main competitor does offer FF options with pro specs some are bound to look and wonder.
It's the same as Nikon users not wanting to pay £4.5k for more resolution, an argument I understand entirely.
These discussions are simply due to the fact that 2 big companies offer followers of the others some things they'd like.
