Anyone starting out now should start with Nikon.
The trend over the past several years has been Nikon increasing in tech and reducing cost
while Canon has been decreasing in tech and increasing cost.
New versions of Nikon are savvy - and new versions of Canon are at best poor upgrades.

You can have both now but it trend continues there is no need to have <fill in>.

Is that where their new prices for battery grips are coming from, and the $400 battery charger?


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

They feel about as good as each other.

Have you felt a MF body recently? They're terrible.

Plus one. :) I can learn just about any camera as long I know where the controls are.

I tried a friends D3s over Christmas, didn't care for it. Same friend brought her new D800 and let me try it for a day. I could - and most likely will - get used to it. It fit my hands better than her D3s, and given the results they could cover it in thorns and I'd still use one. IQ, with her 14-24 was astounding.

Rick! I'm surprised you haven't bought one yet! ;) The 14-24 is darn superb!

The truth is if Canon came out with a 30+mp camera with clean low iso (no patterns) and the DR of the d800 say, I would probably buy one at almost any price less than around $5500.

Not happy about that, but it is cheaper than starting over with lenses.

For sure.

But, please, no inbuilt grip! Event photographers we are not, and some of us have small hands and smaller luggage allowances...

Wife told me I better get one in the queue a couple of days ago. I would, but am waiting a bit to what Canon does, I'm sure they're up to something and it's not going to be long before we see it.

Having switched from Nikon to Canon once, I'd have no issues switching back, except my having to sell and repurchase a rather expensive pile of glassware.

I don't see that as a problem. Has Canon made any promises that the 5D Mk.III will be their high resolution camera for a certain period?
The 5D Mk.III feels much more like an all-round camera geared towards high end entusiasts than a proper studio or landscape camera.

I'm skeptical bcoz' Canon has improved their bodies in increments. The 5D 3 imho is an example of that. My 1Ds 3 can still pull off similar images at similar ISOs. ;)
