Re: 5DIII vs. 5DII vs. D800

Thanks for the insights, it was what I was expecting once a neutral party offered up some experience. If the Canon were the same price as the Nikon, or still at its introductory 5D2 price of $2699, it would be a harder decision. But with the Nikon at 2999, and the 5D3 at 3499, its pretty obvious which will be the winner.

Canon has sold a lot of glass over the last few years with people buying "L" glass for taking pictures of their cats and kids, so I guess they figure they've got a captive market. But price/performace of the Nikon body is the clear winner.
