we do not see eye to eye on every thing

but I agree whole heartedly with Iliah on this

I would not put too much trust into Imaging Resource either, at least
for the following simple reasons:

1. they are trying (I would not dare to call those anecdotal
evidences "tests") 1 sample
2. they do not publish flare, glare, white frame, and black frame
references
3. they expose inconsistently.
4. they do not have decent resolution target, capable to show the
effect noise has on the resolution of high pixel count dSLR

All those comparisons are pretty personal - like "To shoot this, I
would better have this camera than that".

after you have been around the block with reviews and reviewers, you learn to think more critically about them
this is true of just about anything
both high end cameras are worthy

the glass is ALWAYS more important than the body for cameras that have interchangeable lens systems

they are so many variables in a digital camera that no one can expect to review them absolutely well
IR, DPR, SDC are all decent reviewers and there are more out there
the new Nikon flagship is worthy of this great companies legacy

the F mount has many excellent options for shooters, including digital SLRs by Fujifilm & Kodak

Nikon has a new King of the Hill that does just about everything in an exemplary fashion & is nonpareil in the studio
don't take my word for it
read the reviews
as many as you like
