Ok, i am going to try to answer all the responses etc.
Selling my stuff: My bill would be around 200€ higher if i switch, but i´d be switching for some good glass etc.
Honestly: Not trolling i´m just worried about my beloved canon. Maybe the title is a bit aggressive but i want a good discussion in here, not just some people beeing very friendly.
Lenses: Sure, Canon has the edge here. That´s why i chose them 4 years ago. But now, 4 years later, i came to realize that i will never really need those lenses and that Nikon has some really good glass to offer (for example the 24-70). And you can use their old glass on their new bodys too.
I have handled both, the Canon and the Nikon. In terms of ergonomics i didnt find anyone of those superior but i obviously enjoyed the canon more, as i am used to the system. Obviously the canon menu seems better to us but as soon as you get deeper into it it´s also complicated.
I didnt want to ask nikon guys as i already know their opinion. I wanted to ask us (or you guys and girls) about your opinions and if you guys think canon will be far superior when 18nm hits the market.
5d3/d600: Not comparable? Just a short list: 23/24MP, 6/5,5fps, 61/39 autofocus points (ok canon winns here by far), and now to the obviously nikon-dominant (and i just think that their testing is of) dxomark: 11,7EV/14,2EV. Thats much. Oh and ... 1200€ cheaper. 5d3 obviously is tuffer and for pros etc but IQ whise they dont have that many differences.
5d3 is a better package? I would love to know why.
"d800 destroying in most parts" (quote from myself) I never said every part, high iso is actually where the 5d3 shines, but a downscaled d800 destroys the d700 so you cant say that it´s far behind in that point either. A question: Was the d700 sensor already 18nm?
The rest besides the d800´s sensor. I dont see anything worse about the d800 against the 5d3.
dqreview. I know, if i want to have "good" statements i should post there. but i actually want the fanboy opinions and the more normal ones because i am a fanboy myself (on the canon side offcourse).
50 1.2, 85 1.2 Ok those are two really tempting canon lenses, cant argue about that.
For me it is the d800. But it is all about whats going to happen in the near future and if canon is able to make something like the d800 without beeing like "no we cant give you that" "no we had to loose some af point for the price".
When i first picked up a dslr i actually enjoyed the nikons more but the canons nearly equally as much. I actually disliked the middle wheel on the canons (thumb-wheel) cause you have to move your thumb so much.
Dont wanna troll anywhere. Sure Canon is making more money. Look at their pricing, they are just thinking "oh we can give pur customers anything, we dont have to compete with nikon. Lets put 11 autofocuspoints in there and say gps and wlan are much more important!" Thats what i think about the 6D after i saw the first test footage and the whole slow wlan stuff (turning it off in video mode etc), no clean hdmi. They are trolling us.
Yes i love my canon stuff. Havent had a problem with any but i just cant afford to keep my stuff and get a Nikon. For me going FF is a big investment and that would be too much.
