amber led not as good as amber/green led

There are a LOT more differences than 36-22 megapixels. in your case I would not even bother comparing the MP count.

The Canon is a bit quicker, smaller files, better in extreme iso's. The D800 has better post processing capabilities thanks to its patternfree shadows and huge DR. But you seldom postprocess so why care...

might as well not try the Nikon. 5D suits you.

(Did you know the Canon battery charger blinks amber, then turns GREEN when the battery is full...? Great. The D800 charger stays amber when it's ready... why?! Is this why the Nikon is €600,- cheaper?)

But regardless of the reviews should I not try both at the owners expense?
