Sdaniella: D4 = ExpSim LV (maybe; most likely for stills and video); more MP than past 12Mp but only a bit; allows for fast fps still; but not fastest; video now 1080p, but DR poor, too contrasty, blowouts hard to control, not good for cinematography.
D3s = ExpSim LV (stills; video, but only 720p); resolved less than 5D2, a given; but had better hi-ISO IQ; good AF
D3x = ExpSim LV (stills); hi-MP (but IQ iffy; resolves less than 5D2 at higher ISOs); AF iffy.
D3 = ExpSim LV (stills); lo-MP (but IQ superb at higher ISOs; but resolves less; a given; offers higher fps (for lo-MP; this is a given)); AF good.

D800 = NO ExpSim LV (for neither stills or videos; like D700, but D700 only lacked video); but now has very hi-Mp; IQ will only be good at lower ISOs; lesson learned from D3x, and best left for studio. video only as good as D4 or less; also too contrasty and hard to control DR unremarkable for cinematography. AF be similar to what D3x faced for hi-MP. Much cheaper than non-ExpSim LV 645D or any MF

re: marik,

If you're going to point out how each of those cameras do on the benchmark, you might want to also include the fact that you're comparing the 5D Mk 2 to cameras that are all higher-priced. For $2500, it's hard to beat the Mk 2 in an all-around comparison of features to price.

Edit: and, that benchmark doesn't even have all of the semi-pro and pro Canon cameras (such as the 7D). That benchmark has drawbacks.

Francis Carver: NIKON: 2 CANON: 0

Until quite recently it used to be a Canikon World. Now, it's increasingly a NIKON World. Heck, Canon cannot even make believable product announcements any more.

I guess Canon figures, if you have a spare $16,000, get their EOS C300. If not, get the T3i.

I can tell you are either a Nikon-only user or making a joke...or both, because there are several logical progressions between the T3i and the C300.

Way to over-simplify the Canon lineup.
