Follow- up to saying goodbye to 5d mk III and switch to Nikon
Aug 10, 2014

It's been about three weeks since I made the switch to Nikon. And I have made some interesting observations, good and bad about my switch.

First off , I do miss the ergonomics of the 5d and the way it is layed out. I prefer the way the canon defaults are set up to the Nikon ( wheel direction and the way everything reads out in the displays and viewfinder . So much so. That I switched everything around to work the same exact way. I prefer the feel of the canon in my hand also. The 810 is huge in my hands and the grip is perfect for those with large hands. And I miss the 2-second delay on the canon. The AF is equal in both, but I think the build quality is better in the canon. From reports I have read, the canon is more forgiving if you drop it.  Which I did before. Dropping the Nikon causes irreparable damage to it.

But,,, those differences were very minor for me. I switched from the 5d mk III to the 810 because of the resolution and 36 mp. I love the file size and can see the difference when going to 1:1 or 1:2 in LR.  I also loved shooting at native ISO 64. It was very helpful for longer exposures. And, the glass on the 14-24 is sharper in the corners than the 16-35.
