The 5D3 is much better at generating controversy within this community. Check out Nikon Rumors - there is nothing like this going on there. Why not?
"What I absolutely don’t like is the fine grain visible even at ISO 100 in smooth middle and darker areas. I remebers me to my D300 which was great, but not so clear and smooth like my D700 at lower ISOs."
a post titled: "Guest post: Nikon D800 criticisms refuted"
"I have my D800 on preorder arriving March 21 but find it funny how all us Nikon folk are defending the D800 agains the MK3 whereas if the cameras were swapped across brands and we got the MK3 wrapped in a Nikon cloak, we’d have the whole Nikon camp cheering all its glory since it looks more like the camera we wanted as a D700 successor. "
"I think people were expecting LARGER pixels from a D800, not SIMILAR to those of enthusiast/semi-pro models."
"Just a quick poll: do you prefer the Nikon D800 the way it is, with a 36.3MP sensor, or you would rather have the D800 with the 16.2MP sensor from the Nikon D4?" Result: 58.7% for the 16MP sensor
... there's not much difference between Canon zealots and Nikon zealots, everyone thinks the grass is greener on the other side. if you feel that pained about your gear, sell it and get what you really want. what would probably do much more for all of our photographic improvement and skill growth, however, is for us all to get off the forums and go out and actually photograph stuff. I don't plan on frequenting here much until 7D Mark II rumors start getting fun. best to everyone, enjoy your gear and USE your gear
