... the 5d3. ... doesnt provide anything fantastic or revolutionary and is pretty pricey (when you look at the competition).
Just the 1-series AF system that is better than anything else Canon or Nikon offers - nothing fantastic about that... Maybe those old lenses you prefer are all manual focus only, but for most of us, that's pretty fantastic.
They´re ahead because they sold so many 5d2
Not really. Sales of high-end bodies and L-series lenses are a very small fraction (both in units and revenue) compared to the entry-level Rebel/xxxD bodies and kit lenses. But one reason they sold so many 7D's and 5DII's is because of that huge customer base at the entry level - upgraders are much more likely to stay with their current brand. That customer base still exists, and is much larger than Nikon's.
Unfortunately the statement 5D II leads D700 can only be found in this forum. You will see different opinions if you open your mind and look at different forums or do a google search. ...check out their resale values on eBay or amazon. You will know the truth.
LOL. Seriously? What's stated here or on any other internet forum is opinion and is totally irrelevant. The 5DII far outsold
the D700 in the marketplace. That's the "truth" - at least, the only one that matters. In fact, your last statement just proves the point - basic supply and demand, used 5DIIs are cheaper than used D700s because there were a lot more 5DIIs sold, therefore more are available on the used market. Truth, indeed...
Yeah obviously i must be trolling if i consider a nikon over a canon.
Considering Nikon over Canon isn't trolling. Stating that you're considering Nikon over Canon isn't trolling. Starting a thread to state that you're considering Nikon over Canon isn't trolling. Giving that thread a title like, "Is canon going to come back?," with an opening post stating, "Right now canon is far behind others. Or lets just say it: Nikon," - that IS
trolling, in every way.
