Re: D700 vs 5DII vs A900

I wouldntl say so, at 12MP A900 can match D700! at iso 3200! ( overall D700 might be a tad betterat that iso tho)

couple that with 135mm 1.8 and SSS and you have a winner!

But I would use 5d2 with 200 1.8 or 135 2.0 , 5d2 should be good when scaled to 12MP. but not 2 3 steps better then A900 at 12MP!

therefore A900 is the low light king at 12MP if you use the 135 1.8 lens coupled with SSS

If you want low light shooting then the A900 is gone, forget about that.

I've had both the Canon 24-105mm and the Nikon 105mm, both are superb
but also very different. Extremely hard to compare.

I thought the Nikon 105mm Micro was better than the Canon 100mm Macro
but not the almighty Canon 180mm Macro.

As far as which camera to got for, you better wait. I moved from the
5D to the D700 because i was sure of what i wanted and got to test
the D700 out and it delivered. There will be advantages to the 5D MK
II that we haven't seen yet because it hasn't been put through it's
paces. You may as well wait another 2-3 weeks.
