and the real D800 competitor is ....
« on: March 14, 2012, 04:51:24 AM »
....5D2!!!! aka the poor man's FF

Canon is flooding the market with these. In Italy prices as low as 2300 eur for the 24-105 kit. Smart marketing move, since D800 are nowhere to be seen. 5D3 will be hitting distributors next week, with several pallets of cameras already allocated by canon.

Availability to the market, more price choice on FF and production capacity seem to be canon's weapons of choice against D800

Maybe in 6 month's time they'll chuck in a 5DII for free when you buy a 5DIII!  ;D

The real D800 competiror is the 7D mk II.
The 7D II will be a crop camera, so no.

The real D800 competitor might not even be in development yet.  :(

canon will look how nikon fares with the D800.

i guess at the end of the year we will see a >30 MP FF canon camera when the market decides so.

until then the 5D MK2 is STILL a great camera for studio and landscape work.
i never missed a better AF for landscape or studio work.

and for 1600-1700 euro it´s not a bad deal.

ok it doesn´t have the latest tech gimmicks but what matters most for serious landscape and studio photographers is IMAGE QUALITY. the 5D MK2 is still delivering very well on that.
