Such a long way since April 2011, as I uploaded regularly, Nowadays, I've got at least one sale per day. Thank DT for providing me this opportunity to sell easily my modest pictures like nowhere else and to the buyers who bought my pictures. I hope that they are satisfied with my pictures. And so far so good, I may say that I had only one refund with unknown reason and one duplicated download refund.
All of this sounds like that I reached half of my quest : 50% for

I was saving for years in eventuality to upgrade my miserable Canon 40D, Now, the dreamed Canon camera is released but I did not imagined that Nikon will propose a quite attractive one as well with its Nikon D800.
Until now, I am tied with Canon since Canon 300D with some subsequent glasses. I am still hesitating to switch or not. I have the budget for both. I read and read a lot of review. Everything, I read a new one, I found some point makes me to choose to switch and other makes me to stay with Canon.
I've got my Canon 5D Mark III for about 4 months now! I have never been happier!! I already own Canon 450D, Canon 50D and Canon 7D and been waiting for some time to get my first full frame, other than 5D Mark II - played with it and hated it's focusing system! 5D Mark III is a dream come true for me and I will not hesitate to recommend it!! A must have!!...but...Nikon D800 is quite a piece of equipment too and a fierce adversary...!! :) Definitely worth owning if you've got deep pockets for Nikon high quality lenses too!
Unless you have a reason other than stock to have the higher pixel count of the Nikon, I would stick to the Canon. I think the high megapixel count will be extremely demanding on lenses and workflow to get stock approved. It sounds like it would be a workflow nightmare even just from a file size perspective... Without the best lenses any fringing or aberrations in lenses that used to be less than a pixel wide suddenly become more than a pixel wide. No matter for art or prints, but when your work is inspected at 100% I think it will penalize rather than benefit. There is no extra dollar value for files that large.
Just to throw it out there, so you know where I'm coming from, I don't think you can really justify full frame for Microstock in terms of the payback on the body and extra lens costs. I have a 7D because I felt I would splurge for once on a camera body, and I wanted the body features for other reasons - but that same sensor quality can be had with a Rebel or 60D.
