One big challenge for Canon is QE (Quantum Efficiency -- the proportion of light falling on the sensor that gets recorded by the sensor). The 5D2 has a QE of 33% compared to the 57% of the D3s -- that's almost a full stop advantage for Nikon.

overall qe is more important than further reductions in pixel read noise.


nikon makes the best pixels in the business. panasonics new ones are also good - as good as canon overall.

Thanks for the correction!
