Disclosure: my company is 100% Canon, but at its tipping point -- go with D4 for its awesome stills/video specs and faster release, or stick with Canon 1D series and hoping 5D comes out blazing.
that´s interesting... i always wonder how people manage such a switch?
given that we speak about more then two bodys and two lenses... how comes that people seem to think about switching brands so easily?
i made a short calculation and when i sell all my canon stuff on ebay and had to buy it new from nikon i had to invest an additional 15000 euros (ok then i had everything brand new but that doesn´t cut the cake).
that would make me think if minor video features are worth it.
i could buy a dedicated video cam for that money.
beside.... what awesome features you speak about that a 1D X does not offer??
go with D4 for its awesome stills/video specs
I switched from Minolta to Nikon in 2003 because all my gear was stolen so I had to buy new. And I'd wanted to go to Nikon or Canon for some time. I choose Nikon at the time because my brother had all Nikon gear.
I switched to All Canon in 2009 because the 5D III was so good, and had 21MP. The 21MP is important to me because I shoot micro stock, and more MP means more $/per image. I took about a year to sell off all the Nikon Gear, and although I promised not to go too nuts with Canon, I now own 13 lenses...
Why no 1Dx samples? I think Canon is going to up the specs before they actually release it and make it look better vs. the D4.
