Noticing a pattern here...
In reply to joger, Jul 12, 2012

You have posted some pretty odd comparisons before, but this one takes the cake.

I am slow to notice patterns, but I think I see now the joger template:

  1. Pro forma statement of neutrality (only valid for one paragraph)

  2. Insert apples to oranges comparison, where hapless D800 will lose again to 5D-II/III.

  3. Make as many variables as humanly possible different.

  4. Draw sweeping conclusion to justify purchase/lack of purchase.

  5. Debate and never, never change your mind.

  6. Repeat.

While a lot of your points are totally valid and obvious - right tool for the job, total image chain, lenses are just as important as cameras etc, the sheer volume of self-justification posts makes me think you just can't get over the D800. If you were truly happy with every link in your chain you would not be posting these.

You have a great camera and some amazing glass. Just enjoy it.
