Still thinking whether I should get 5D Mark 3 or Nikon D800
Oct 21, 2012

I wanted to switch to D700 few years ago; but I gave up because I already have several good canon glasses - 17-40L,35L,70-200 f/4L and 100 macro....flash.....together with 7D
   My main objective is to take portrait photos for my kids
   Now with the impressive spec of D800 ......the price of D800 has dropped a lot after initial launch.....
I really want to go with D800 and refresh my lenses line up.....and get the weather sealed 35 f/1.4G, The high performance/price's 85 f/1.8G and probably the new and upcoming 70-200 f/4 VR
  However, it is much easier and cheaper to get 5D3 + 85 f/1.8 USM
So I really want to ask if there is anyone who has both D800 and 5D3 or
you have upgraded from 7D to 5D3; what do you think about the benefits of going 5D3?

I have asked a similar question in the Nikon forum as well; and I can't still make up my mind

Many thanks in advance
