Re: Nikon D3 vs Canon 5D - test shots

The Nikon has much richer and more realistic color, and is noticeably sharper and less noisy at 3200 (especially at the edges; look at the detail of the lettering on the lenses at the bottom of the frame).

However, I would not say it looks $2500 better...

Of course the extra speed of the D3, compatibility with older MF Nikon lenses, higher max ISO, far superior screen, weather proofing, superior light meter, superior ergonomics, superior viewfinder, etc. would be the thing that justifies the extra $2500.
