dual12: Same old noisy Canon sensor with blown highlights and limited dynamic range.
every one of those shots appears to be out of focus, maybe a bad kit lens.
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.
Where did you order it? I noticed today that it has been pulled from B&H and Adorama websites.
