Friendly Canon 5D/ Nikon D3 shootout
Sep 9, 2007

My wife and I were ask to take the cast pictures for the lobby of a new stage theater that just opened in town. She shoots with a Canon 5D and I shoot with a Minolta 5D. Guess who's pictures got hung?

She is encouraging me to get the Nikon D3 so she has some competition. Her favorite lens is the 24-105 L with image stabilization.
Does Nikon have a comparable full frame lens so I can compete on equal footing?

The pictures will be head and shoulder shots so I need to favor the longer focal length to avoid serious cropping. We will be shooting about 15-20 feet from the actors. The brightness level of the lights leaves something to be desired.
