Re: Choosing the 5D mark iii over the D800

I shoot Canon (1Ds Mark II & 5D Mark II currently) professionally as well as my personal Nikons, including the D800. And I think you have almost all of it completely wrong. The D800 is probably the best landscape DSLR on the planet by a long shot. Better video than the Mark III, faster AF, etc. I simply don't see how you could have even seriously thought about the D800 since you really mis-characterize it quite seriously. Mine is flawless other than it doesn't use the same WIFI dongle as the D4, and it doesn't have an infrared port for a remote trigger. Or do 11 fps (and I don't care). I've had it since March16th.
