When I first got my 5D3 I was blown away in the difference between it and 5D2.
I had gone to the photoplus expo in NY the day they released the 1DX and this was late October 2011 on a Friday afternoon.
No one knew what the 5D3 was going to be like.
So they had a sample 1DX there that you could pick up and try and the 14 FPS sounded like a machine gun.
It was amazing.

So I followed the release of the 5D3 and the day it was announced that thread was started that went on forever.
A few weeks later I had mine to go along with the 24-105 and 70-200 2.8 IS II

I felt like the 5D3 was worlds better in every respect.

I think the best line from this whole video is his equating "Canon vs. Nikon" to "Fender Stratocaster vs. Gibson Les Paul" in that the large majority of the differences between the two is the feel, ergonomics and personal preference.

Without question. The 5D3 is worlds better than the 5D2 in use, though the sensors are very similar. The menus, focus system, dual card slots made for a much better overall camera, even though the actual sensor was just a minor step up.

MY experience is that the Canon 1DX/5D3 get the initial focus quicker, but the D4/D800 hold the focus better.

That was always my complaint with the 1D3/1D4 - it wouldn't hold focus. That is also why so many people jumped ship to the D3 back then. The Nikons just hold focus better and the 1D3 had all kinds of problems with all kinds of solutions that never really worked.

Yes. The 1D MK 3 debacle left a scar after going through the whole fix.

Also, there are rumors of a D4s. :)

I wish Scott Kelby all the best. When he realizes that Canon sensors lack DR, he'll be knocking back on Nikon's door. ;):lol:

Not everyone needs more than 12 stops of DR... in fact, most people don't.

Most Canon shooters (myself included) say that until they use the D800. :cool:

I've used it and hated it. The files from it are nice, but the camera itself is just awful imo. I'll stick with the Canon and Fuji ;)

Well then, enjoy your small plasticy camera instead.

Since he is a sport shooter like me he probably is always shooting higher ISO's which is where DR on both camera makers is similar.

True but, I like to tell it like it is. I have the tools to get the job done and having those tools at my disposal is a big bonus. ;)

Plasticy? Have you even ever held a Fuji? They're almost entirely made of magnesium... just like your Nikons. Oh, except the lenses are all fully metal too, unlike your Nikons ;)

He isn't really a sports shooter. He shoots for an agency that doesn't cover the NFL in many markets in exchange for credentials so he has more content to blog.

Try to find his sports pics published somewhere. He's there for his blog.

I was referring more to the 6D and M in your profile.

I do own and use a Fuji. It's a fun toy for walking around with. I enjoy it a lot. But I wouldn't use it on a paid assignment either.

Agreed. I've done my comparisons with the 1D X and D4. There really is no discernible difference at high ISOs. I did some test prints and laid them out for a photo club and they could not distinguish which camera it was from.
