You should give up photography if you use auto-iso.

Auto-ISO is a convenience feature.  Using something out of convenience shouldn't preclude anyone from being a photographer, whether they're an amateur or professional.

Sure anyone can be a "photographer" but auto-iso isn't going to help anyone be a great photographer.

The manual is for n00bs and gearheads who know nothing about photography.

the funny thing is the people who come out with the comments like that are the ones who usually turn out to have much less experience shooting

Yep, we have less experience because we understand exposure and use manual controls 100% of the time  ;D

  I have been waiting for those pic.  Now finally we can compare apples with .. Canon.  Excellent work of those folk s at IR.

Nikon's color continues to always look off to me. I'm happy to stick with Canon.

Why Canon is better:

-Better ergonomics. When you put it in your hand it fits like a glove.
-Buttons and switches are in the right place. You don't need to press two buttons do one function.
-Easy to use interface.
-Better color and white balance.
-Better lenses and selection.
-Faster initial focus acquisition.

I'm upgrading from the 5D Mark II to the III. I'm sticking with Canon mainly due to the lens choices (I own all L lenses). I also like how rich and sharp my photos come out. Maybe it's just me but photos taken from Nikons always look soft and the color always seems off. The samples I have seen from the D800 haven't changed my mind.

You own all the L-lenses?  :o
How about 50mm 1.0L, 200mm 1.8L and 800mm 5.6L ::) ::)

Haha, I meant most of them.

Go full frame! Sell all your lenses and invest in L lenses and don't look back.

If you can afford it, get it. If not, then don't. Simple as that. If you really want it but can't afford it now, start saving up for it. It's not going anywhere. By the time you have enough money for it, there might be a slight price drop.
