Canon EOS 5D MK III price VS. D800
Aug 27, 2013

I bought my D800 from B & H just 5 or so weeks ago for $2,796.95. I just noticed that Amazon is selling Canon EOS 5D MK III (body only) for $3,499. I usually do not pay attention and not trying to get anything started but are these not competing FX camera models? What do you get the extra $702.00??? I'd have thought that these cameras would be priced far closer than this -- at first, I thought it was for a body with a kit lens --- not true -- it $3,499 for body only. ONly advantage I can see is 6 FPS vs. 4 and 61 point AF vs. 53 (not sure if that's better) -- and D800 obviously is way ahead on megapixel count --- If you do not have an investment in lenses, why would you invest in the Canon??
