5dmk2 vs Nikon d7000 and large wild animals.

The other day, my friend and I were in the jungle, photographing tigers. He had his Nikon D7000 and I had my 5D Mk II.

We were suddenly charged by a pair of tigers. I hit mine on the nose with my Canon , hurting it, and it turned tail and fled. My friend was less lucky. He hit his tiger on the nose too but did not hurt it and it ate him.

Conclusion: the Canon is heavier than the Nikon and inflicts more pain when you hit a wild animal with it.

This could save your life one day.
