I don't believe I ever compared it with the Canon, I've never used the Canon. From memory I said the Nikon is more than good enough for me.

Sorry! I confused you for someone else.

So I found this blog post from another long time Canon user who switched to Nikon D750...

Great review, plus it shows that the sensor is more important than the lens when capturing images. I'd rather use that body and the 85 f1.4d than any Canon body paired with the 85f1.2 when shooting portraits.

With all the competition out there now it's a great time to be a consumer. Fuji, Sony and Nikon have all released excellent bodies and lens recently at very affordable prices and it will be interesting to see if Canon can keep releasing rehashed tech at high prices without losing customers.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

But then he goes on to illustrate it with photos that could have been taken with any camera because it's the web and they've been downgraded. Those photos he shows don't make me want to go buy a D750. I rented one for a month when they first came out. It's a nice camera. It's not as intuitive as Canon when changing settings, which he mentioned. Needing two hands is unforgivable IMO for those kind of changes. I like not moving the camera from my eye. And Nikon doesn't make that really easy.

I'm not sure how it shows anything about the sensor. With those photos downrezed for the web, they don't really show much IMO. A phone could have taken them.

I suppose you're correct, at that size even a Canon sensor/85l combo coud've taken that good a photo.;-)a

Had a quick look at that link to the D750 review, didn't read it just looked at the images! I already know that Nikon cameras/lenses do not do what I need so I was only looking out of curiosity.
I rather liked the shot of the Zebra, but the others??? No thanks - not a good advert for Nikon as they are far better than what he posted!
For the OP's uses Nikon may well be a better option but I sit at the long (focal length)end and need fast AF, tracking as well as top quality IQ and from my experience Nikon just don't do it at the moment. I am sure this will change in the future but they will need a complete new suite of long lenses (except possibly the 800 F5.6 Vr - but it will need re-pricing!) and a new flagship body or two. So I am not holding my breath!


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).
