Well, I switched to a brand new D800 before the review, but clearly I'm not surprised they liked the camera.
Surely if resolution isn't as important as frame rate for anybody, the D700 or 5DmkIII are better options instead of the 5DmkII/D800 by far which are aimed at a different market.
Yes i have ordered the 5d III because there is not a single thing the d800 is better at. At least not a visible thing. The 5dIII is by far the more versatile camera.
Well it all depends. if you don't find the cleaner shadows at in the D800 better: see http://www.fredmiranda.com/5DIII-D800/index_controlled-tests.html
or if you don't find the still images having less moire on the D800 better: seehttp://www.fredmiranda.com/5DIII-D800/index_controlled-tests.html
Or if you don't find the broader dynamic range (14 stops) of the D800 better
or if you don't find the 4:2:2 uncompressed HDMI out option, in addition to better detailed output which is closer to true 1080p than the 5DmkIII, and crop video modes of the D800 better
or you don't find the higher level of detail found in 36MP, higher crop versatility, and option to sample down to control noise when needed better.
or if you don't find the ability to focus with f/8 lenses on the D800 better.
or if you don't find the face detection, full color 91K zone metering/AF system (similar to the 1DX) system better.
or if you don't find Nikon's translucent out of the way viewfinder focus point that let you see what you're shooting better.
If you neglect all those things at which is better, then yeah, it has not a single thing which is better at
Yet there are plenty of things the D800 is better at even if you don't think they are. That's just a fact.
Versatility depends on what you shoot for not everybody shoots the same just because they call themselves a photographer. The needs of versatility for a studio/landscape/portrait photographer are totally different than the needs of versatility for a sports/journalist photographer. For me, for all the things the 5DIII does better, it doesn't do them THAT much better to offset the things it DOESN'T do better. I'm sure some are in the exact opposite side of the fence. And that's fine. If we all shot the same thing, it would make for a boring world.
Choice is great and I'm glad I can choose the D800 as it is the most versatile for me. If the 5Dmk4 is better and the D900 dissapoints, I'll switch. What's the big deal. It's just a tool, not a wife.
