Luigi Semenzato: I am in the market for a new camera and lenses. I have a Canon 20D with a few lenses, including the cheapest 70-200mm L series, but I am considering ditching everything and switching to a FF Nikon, and the main factor driving this is the extra 2 to 2.5 bits of dynamic range in the Nikon sensor at low ISO. There are a lot of high-contrast daytime situations in which those extra bits can make the difference between a good shot and a useless shot, by preserving important shadow or highlight detail.
In addition, Nikon seems to have a slightly better attitude toward lens compatibility, and a more sensible approach towards not limiting camera features in firmware to better capture a customer's willingness to spend money on those features.
I am wondering what other people feel about these issues. Am I way off?
"the Canon 6D doesn't save RAW files in the HDR mode". What blasphemy is this? The point of HDR is you can combine several shorts in different exposures, No RAW for processing?
