They have a new high ISO banding removal plugin for canon?

Hehe! :) If there was I'd make a ton of money. ;)

This is the answer I was looking for. MFD is where Canon has the edge. :)

Which is why I'd have the Canon, Even if I hate the paintjob

That said, between the f/4s, this gives the Nikon the edge, it focuses closer than just about every other 70-200 on the market :D

MFD is 1m, the closest comparison is the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 which is .95m... MM should be in the 1:3.6-ish range i believe...

Canon's 2.8L II is 1.2m (1:4.8) the f/4L IS is 1.2m (1:5)

I see the Nikon being an excellent flower lens especially coupled with a 105 f/2.8G VR

I think part of the issue with Nikon's focus breathing are MFD can be addresses with the extra MP of the D800. The perspective won't change, of course.

Could you tell me how the Canon one is a better lens? I own both. :);)

I've owned both too, they're both very good but I don't see one as being better than the other.

$180 for the tripod collar. Not bad at all.

Agreed. The body and lens are a killer combo. :)

Not as extensive as the post from FM but it is ok I guess. Looking forward to see some "real" world sample images and not bricks, or color charts that dpreview use for their tests.

Pity there is no Exif info. I would like to know the aperture on that flower pic.
