So the mkIII is going to get 96+ points!?!?!?!?
meh, I am still pissed off at Canon for making Canadian residents pay 300 more than our U.S. friends . . . . the $$ is even or above par by a penny, and last time I checked my money and "loyalty" to Canon was as good as our U.S. counterparts. Also, how on earth can Canon not add all the video bells and whistles on the mkIII, for that price.
The way I see it, people need to stop being so militant when it comes to defending either Nikon or Canon and actually think like consumers instead of trying to make up excuses for either company for god's sake. From one of the reviews posted on the news page, we get info that a mediocre camera has better video options/quality than the mkIII, and aside from that the D800 has better video optionsthan the mkIII . . although the mkIII does appear to have better video output (?).
I am more comfortable with Canon, but that doesn't mean I have to be a donkey . . .
I am styill going to wait for the mkIII reviews on DP and DxO, and then make a desicion as to what to do. . . . . I have to make that decision since I am being forced to pay a premium for something that might be bested by a cheaper camera, etc etc etc. . . . I need to weigh things, and I don;t give a damn abouty either company's hoorays or fandom crap. . . . I just want products that make sense in every way as opposed to another manufacturer. SO far it's still the mkIII, but my sights are on the 1Dx. . . .
"Overall score: 1st (95)
With its 4-point lead, the Nikon D800 has become the new sensor of reference — and with an unmatched quality-to-price ratio to boot: among the 8 top cameras, it is by far the least expensive (with an announced price of less than 3000 $)."
