No D700 - Did Canon play this particular hand better?
7 months ago

I'm a Nikon user and lover of their gear but I gotta say...Canon seems to have no(or minimal) gaps in their lineup compared to Nikon with the exception of a D800/E mega-pixel monster type camera.  I also think their DX lineup is stronger...or at least appears to be since they clearly mark the lowest DSLRs as Rebels and have seemed to keep the FPS better than the D7100.

Part of the problem is that Nikon has the bar set too low for their flagship model, the D4 so everything underneath that must deliberately be not as good in some fashion.  If the D4 was more in the realm of the 1DX you could shave off several FPS, up the megapixels a touch, and still have a camera that doesn't kill 1DX sales too much...in this case the 5DMKIII.

I think a lot of D700 owners would have been happy if Nikon came out with their version of the 5DMKIII.
