From my point of view it is evident that sony/nikon sensors are superior to canon's. I would love to have my 5d III with the D600 sensor.
It is hard to believe that the majority of canon users are not disappointed with the increasing gap in sensor technology between Nikon and Canon.
I'm not a fan of either brand. I'm just a Canon user with a lot of glass and therefore married for good or bad. Right now, things are going bad.
I can see wanting the D800 sensor, but the d600? Actually, I can't even really see wanting that sensor. I've said it before and will say it again --- reading this makes one wonder whether I should do things like, present a wedding gallery to a client filled with images or have all the images sent to dxo, have them rated and send the test results to the client cause obviously that's what matters?
I honestly don't see why people keep beating this dead horse. It's dead, and its been beaten, now your beating on it more --- But I gess it needs to be said again---for this round of bodies canon seems to have chosen to leap ahead in high ISO performance (while also putting a ton into lens dev, putting out a dedicated cinema line. And if the recent rumor is true, canon does have a 46.1 mp body in the final dev stages), AF and processor power. Nikon/sony went for MP's and DR. Like it or not, thats where we are NOW. Will it be that way forever, no, canon will catch up in DR and nikon will catch up in high ISO, then we'll wait for the next round of dev. Until then, go take some freaking pictures!!!!
