Time for you to move to the dark side? Maybe take Hogloff with you ?

PS. dedicated to hogloff

:lol: Don't be ridiculous. I've owned and used a D800 and a bag of excellent Nikon-mount glass, and I sold it and have stuck with Canon. I would like to see Canon to advance their sensor technology more so than they have (as evidenced again with the 70D sensor's performance). Is that wrong?

I'm not a brand fanboy so I'm not well-connected with the "if you don't love everything about your gear, you should switch brands" mindset. :)

+1. I'm sure once (or if) Canon introduces a sensor that matches the Exmor DR, many who supposedly care less now about DR will be raving about it.

I have my Canon gear, I'm happy with it, and no plans to switch anytime soon - but it would be silly to deny that I'd like to see improvements in DR and High ISO performance.

Ya I guess it would be fine for DR, but in High ISO Canon is equal to Nikon with better detail though, here is another comparison I found

Here you can see DR of D700, D3s or D300 is almost the same as nikon 6D or Mark3 or mark 2 which is 12 EV, however i know some wedding photographer like D700, D3S better than D800 or D4, they even switch back.

I've printed high ISO shots from Canon and Nikon. There's no way to tell the difference!

The difference in noise control is slightly better in the D4 vs. D3s. I've shot weddings with the D800/E and working with 36 MPs is certainly overkill unless I'm shooting a portrait.
