Re: Hesitating between Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800

Since you have a great selection of lenses, I would stay with Canon. The Nikon Fan Bois will extoll the virtues of 36mp vs 22. But in real world? I haven't noticed that 22mp is too small for anything I've done.

Also issues about the autofocus on the D800 are starting to pop up ( http://fstoppers.com/news-nikon-d800-has-confirmed-focusview-finder-issues & http://diglloyd.com/blog/2012/20120602_3-NikonD800E-autofocus.html )

I'd stay with the Canon.
