Jon Stern: Looking at low and high ISO (raw) what impresses me is how good my 5D Mark II is.
I think I'll keep it!
The 7D,and 60D looks better 5D Mark II,so does the D7000.
Calgary Guy: "Tell the Truth": Are you so much of a looser to utter such nonsense? Facts are that both these manufacturers sell prime equipment . We all reap the fruit from this fierce competition between these giant companies. Both these companies keep each other on their toes and that is good. You gain in one aspect and loose in another aspect. What made the Nikon D700 better for some? For sure the focus points. What made the Canon 5DMrk2 better for others? For sure the mega pixels. So what makes the Canon 1Dx the likely winner over the Nikon D4? It wins in three aspects: Megapixels, number of focus points and the higher shutter speed. The penalty is $800.00 which is tough.So for you Mr "Tell the Truth" that sold your Canon lenses for Nikon lenses...: Go buy yourself a D4. You will have an excellent camera most people will envy..., except for the Canon 1Dx owners because they will know they bought the winner in this supreme category!And for the record: I ordered my 1Dx today. Deposit paid.
I have to agree that both brands are good,but now you see Canon following Nikons' pixel metering system and trying out their own version of the Active D-Lighting that they haven't been able to match.Nikon topped the market with F5 back in film days,and set a benchmark with D3s(as stated in the review by DPReview).One company learns from the other, but it seems Nikon has the advantage.This is just my opinion of course and I'm sure Canon users can find things Nikon copied from them so the leap-frog will always continue.
