Re: Depends - This is what I did

The D800 is a fabulous camera, but apparently needs ideal conditions to get the most from it.

Funny, I see my D800 as the camera that can do the jobs my Canon's can't. I still use my Canon equipment a lot but when I expect difficulties (like high contrast) I take the Nikon.

I say, if you don't feel the need to ever brighten a shadow, go for the Canon. Otherwise use the Nikon.
