5D3+24-70II same cost as D800+24-70+70-200 !!
Mar 2, 2012

Pricing in the EU/UK of the new 5D3 plus the 24-70II is almost the same as Nikon's new D800 + 24-70 + 70-200 (all f2.8).

Even with MPx aside, Nikon's D800 body destroys the 5D3 in every single respect. Throw in the pricing and the better upgrade path for many appear to be switching brands.

I accidentally trashed all my (Canon) equipment and having to start from scratch, for me switching to Nikon is a no brainer.

I've been a Canon DSLR user for 10 years. I wished I could stay with Canon, if only for familiarity, but compared to the competition, Canon's new pricing and offered features look pretty absurd to me.

Of course I will wait till first 5D3/D800 tests show out, but unless massive D800 flaws, I cannot see how I will buy Canon's.

Several Pro photogs I know switched to the D3/s but kept a 5D2. Guess what they'll get to upgrade their 5D2s.
