Damn this is going to be a tough week.
Hurry up Adorama!
And me with three-day ship.
I wonder if they can use the International Dateline as the March 22 date?
srgb or adobeRGB only applies to jpg files, not raw.
I am confused at this whole Canon vs Nikon mud slinging.
It's easy to argue that the D800 is better (on paper) for landscape type work. It's also easy to argue that the 5D3 will be more versatile, a jack of all trades. Neither are incapable of recording photos.
A great deal of the mud, I think, comes from the price point. Maybe Nikon is making a play at market share, or maybe canon buyers are getting hit with more R&D related costs since they aren't buying sony sensors. Either way, if the Canon were priced at 3k MSRP, I don't suspect there'd be nearly the volume of mud.
That is an excellent point.
There's significant difference in sharpness and other qualities when you get into the "L" territory (or their Nikon counterparts), and personally I think the grade of the lens is more important than the "muscles" of the different camera bodies.
Might be a miscommunication somewhere, considering:QuoteI have confirmed March 22, 2012 as the for sale date in both Canada and the United States. Cameras will arrive before that date to retailers, but cannot be sold until then.
Somebody is wrong...
First, I almost always use a tripod and I'm well aware that an ISO of 100 is the ideal and I strive to keep the ISO as low as possible. However, there will always be some circumstances that don't allow for ideal settings. Sometimes even with a tripod you just can't get the shot at ISO 100, particularly when you're stopped down to f/8 and using filters, which is where having the option to boost ISO becomes a big help and may make all the difference.
Second, of course the 5D3 is not the perfect landscape camera. There's really no such thing. It won't suit every landscape photographer's needs. The 5D3 will suit the needs of some and the D800 will suit the needs of others.
