Peter 13: I see.
NIKON EXPANDS ACCLAIMED NIKKOR LENS LINEUP ...
Compact, versatile and powerful - introducing the [Canon] EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM and EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
So the Nikon lenses are "acclaimed" while the Canon lenses are just a lenses?
@inevitable...Do you know what are you talking about?Dont you think that some competition between manufacturers is good for you? Or perhaps are you employed by Nikon?
justmeMN: So they made a silver non-weather-sealed lens to go on their black weather-sealed camera?
m4/3 for studio? Dont be silly, FF lenses at f2.8 offer much better DOF control then this lens for camera, which is perfect for a walk or travel but studio.
Lensflair: To highlight my allegiances, I have a 5D2 (only because I have canon glass and not Nikon glass and don’t see the point in changing) and a Blad H4D-40 and I have always thought that Nikon and Canon are both very good camera manufactures. Both the 5D3 and D800 are good cameras that tackle things a little differently and have pros and cons. If pixel count is important and you have a lot of disc space and idle RAM in your desktop then get the D800. If file size, speed and noise is more important then get the 5D3. Either way 99% of people who have ranted and raved on this post wont see a difference in the photos at all. And too be honest I think the 5D3 is a more usable camera overall for 98% of amateurs - and pros will go the D4 without regrets.
Oh, and lastly, I have never had a problem with the auto focus on the 5D2 (except in sports situations) and don’t see the point of face detection and other gimmicks – they are designed for people who don’t know how to shoot properly.
I have read couple of your comments over the last few weeks and decided to register to tell you that you are mad Adler.Im not going to say which camera is better because i think both are great, im going to say that you had better to go to doctor. I really mean this.
