I understand this is a Canon Forum but please try to be unbiased.
I am just starting off and looking to take still photography only, video is not part of the equation. At this point I'm interested in taking street level and portrait photography sometime in low-light without a flash.
I have spent 50+ hours reviewing the Canon 5D3 and Nikon D800 but just cant seem to make up my mind. If you were able to start over and were comparing the two cameras what system would you prefer and why? My budget is around 5k including lenses.
Here are the two options I've been considering...
1) Canon 5D3 and Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM
2) Nikon D800 and Nikon Nikon 24-70mm 2.8G ED AF-S
Thanks in advance,
