All right people. I really need an honest opinion here. I was shooting Nikon D5100 up till now and was hoping to upgrade to full frame by the end of this year.Well, you ARE asking this question on a Canon site so you can expect a lot of votes for Canon. When I was deciding which brand to go with (I had had a Nikon film camera and lenses in the distant past) I ultimately decided on Canon because of its lenses. Since gong Canon I have not been disappointed. Plus a significant factor for me, believe it or not, was the menu system, which I find easier to navigate through than Nikon's and especially the three custom setting dials. Now that it appears that the Mark III will have the multiple exposure capability that higher end Nikon's have makes the choice of Canon even stronger IMHO
To begin with, I had both the D800 and the 5D Mark 3 on my wish list. I mean I really don't have a huge investment in terms of the lenses, and I'll always get some return when I sell of my present gear (In case I decide to go with canon).
I need opinion on this because if I do go with canon on the mark 3, then i'll also get L lenses, and the investment then is going to be substantial. So its going to be a long term commitment. And the tech guide on the D800 kinda scared me a bit with all the chatter involving image blur with the slightest movement because of the "high resolution". And I'm also not sure about its iso performance in comparison to the D700.
Suggestions please guys..?? What would be a better camera for me. I mean we cant really say much until both the cameras are out and have been thoroughly reviewed. But going by the spec list...?? Which way should I go..??
Yes, canon does seem to have a more versatile lens line up with their L lenses. Besides, the more i read about the D800, the more i feel that its more of a 'specific purpose' kind of a camera. It just doesnt give that 'all round' camera feel.
I just hope canon delivers the "unsurpassed image quality" they are promising. It will just make so much easier for me to decide.
Thank you so much for the input by the way
PS: I posted it here and not on nikon rumors because people over there are quite rude. They insult you for not knowing anything before they actually tell you something.
Admin spends quite some time deleting those posts I think. I like nikon cameras, i just hope their shooters would be a little polite
