Re: Buy the D800 or switch to Canon???

I am a member of a camera club and shot my D800 next to two Canon Mark II shotters. They get very good images but the Canons doent focus as accurately/fast as the D700, D7000, or D800 in my experience. Also we were shooting a ballet rehearsal in theater light and the Canon shooters threw most of their shots away because they didn't use high isos because of noise. My D800 and D7000 were dialed up to iso 2000-4000 and noise was not an issue. So resolution isn't the only thing to consider.

We also went to Bosque del Apache and shot sand hill crains before sunrise. Again I was at very high isos and captured bird in flight with sharp wings. The Canon Mark II shooters were struggling.
