5D Vs. D700
Jun 4, 2010

I'm seriously considering switching to a 5D for reasons involving camera noise, pixels and video. It seems weird that dpreview rates the 5D at 79% and the D700 at 95%. My Canon friends beg to differ?

I shoot everything from production stills for movies to nature and dpreview says the 5D is not good for "action/sports/wildlife". Can this be true?

The "clack" of the Nikon has created so many uncomfortable moments distracting the talent and most recently Kid Rock asked me to use a different camera. Scares kids, distracts adults, makes birds fly away.
I also don't think Nikon has a clue about video and may never catch up.

I'm hoping you guys can enlighten me because I'm going to take a loss on a swap and I want to make sure the 5D will work for me.
Thanks, G>
