No, I'm not going to switch to Canon any time soon (I'm too invested

hold Nikon's feet to the fire

Sheesh. MP arent the answer. Nikon has the advantage as
far as glass goes - and the glass has a lot more to offer in
the final exposure than MP - please consider the superior
resolving power of Nikkor lenses. The tonality that my
D3/D700's produce are far beyond what I've seen out of
current canon camp.

The new 5D is slow (FPS) compared to the D700, which
would be the direct competitor, although I dont consider
the 5D to be a true competitor - check the specs. And for
me, the ergonomics of Nikons are far superior to what
canon has to offer.

The D3/D700 has a better focusing system - the canon
AF system is on-par with their 40D and 50D - I don't know
about anyone else, but you can have it - and I suspect the
D3/D700 has superior high ISO performance.

If you need more MP, add MF to your arsenal. MPs are
not the be-all answer.
