I would definitely bought D600 instead of this stupid 5d3 if it had CF card instead of SD card.

It would save me $1500 for more lenses.

I had so many problems and lost so many SD cards that it is not even funny. Plus even the fastest SD cards somehow slow in the camera and slow in the outside devices.

BTW, DXO got it all wrong probably because they don't have access to lenses as much as Lens Rentals. D600 and especially D800 outresolve 5D3 even with lesser lenses.
There was an article posted here on this site but somehow DPR decided to remove it probably because a lot of Canon fanboys were upset.

http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2013/01/a-24-70mm-system-comparison show D800 outresolve 5D3 even though 5D3 was using the best Canon lens and D800 was using Tamron which is even below Nikon 24-70G in resolution but not by much. I trust Lens Rentals much more than DXO.

Congrats on D610.

You must have missed the part where he tested the Nikon 24-70 as well as the Tamron. The Tamron was about the same as the Nikon but both were behind the Canon 24-70 as a lens goes. 36 MP obviously out-resolved 22, but it was surprisingly close when using the better Canon lens vs the Nikon 24-70.

I did not miss anything. My points is that D800 will outresolve 5D3 even with lesser lens unlike DXO preaches. Maybe Canon 24-70mm is better today but doesn't mean it will be better tomorrow. There is always something better tomorrow as long as it is not in the Canon's camp.

By the way, last year Roger decided on a Canon 6D as his personal camera. With all the information he had at hand, he felt it offered the best combination of qualities.

That is his choice. And probably not for the reason we are discussing here.
