Having move to the 5DIII from the D3S I can say that my reasoning was little to do with the camera. Nikon do not yet have a quality equivalent to the 50/1.2 and the 85/1.2. They are undoubtedly the best lenses I've ever used |(and I've had Leica Noctilux, Summilux 1.4 etc) and provide the most supreme colourful and sharp images.

Nikon has some great lenses but these 2 can't be matched. In addition I feel (note 'feel') that the Canon 70-200 2.8VRII and the 135/2 also don't have great Nikon equivalents.

Never mind the megapixels, the ergonomics, the AF, the frames per second and all the rest of the overwhelming technical data; when the glass is good the images are better.

Buy the Canon.
