You are a new "convert" to our religion, so we have to be nice ... else you might stray from the path of light and go back to the dark side ;D

I also recently switched from Nikon to Canon, and I am very happy the change.  In the past I've owned the Nikon D90, D700, and D800....in my opinion the D800 is best for a studio environment with a tripod.  The 5D MarkIII is a better all around camera and more fun to shoot with...my only complaint is I wish it had better dynamic range.

Also, Canon appears to offer more frequent, and better, discounts/rebates than Nikon offers.

The Fred Miranda review doesn't say the D800 is a better camera, just that it offers more dynamic range. Too many people get tunnel vision with DR and shoot down the 5D3 without having used both. I have, and can say without a doubt that I'm glad I have the 5D3. For video the D800 lacks the sharpness on the LCD to tell whether you've achieved perfect focus and it also is choppy with expanded view. Two things that videographers use all the time. (I was using a D800 and 50 1.4).

If you want to argue Nikon vs. Canon, there is no camera in the world that can even come close in matching the 1DX for sports.  I didn't realize this until recently, but it's ridiculous.

I actually think this explains Canon's recent focus, FF DSLR's are right at the top of the food chain when it comes to "action" photography where as there operating below MF DSLR's when it comes to studio/landscape work.

Actually my guess is that the most vocal people are those that haven't used either.

With a 21/22 megapixel camera you can make prints in the range DIN A2 and you can crop in. The pixels on the D800E sensor are very small. If you have small pixel, then you have normally more noise, less light sensivity  and a poorer image quality. Same you get if you put 24 megapixels on an APS-C sensor.
But the pixels of the D800 are better than the Canon pixels. Especially at low ISO they have lower noise.

wow, it goes RIGHT to his argument of LESS light sensitivity... smaller pixel fit more onto any given grid, so for the sake of this silly 5D3 vs. D800 thing YES, more pixels = more res. but the NEW 22.1mp 5D3 sensor handles light BETTER, period!low iso is a stiffles me  in a lot of situations today. I dont always have a tripod for 800-3200 iso shots. All given I'd take the 3 compared to the 800 for my style of shooting anyway.

landscapes, studio, street and weddings have been shot LONG BEFORE THIS SILLY CONTEST!

as far as which is better- what are your end results with the kit you have???
