Re: my 2 cents

One follow up - this website, for all cameras from Canon, rates image quality so poor compared to Nikon, say 7D vs D7000. Why is that?

Because they have some sort of agenda, they simply are idiots which have no clue...

2. Also, why are Canon cameras AF focal points so less vs Nikon? Say 19 vs 39 or 51 etc?

Quality over quantity. Most Nikon AF systems (D300s, D7000) are only cross type in the center or the center columns, the other AF points are much less capable - but if you don't want to cycle through all of them you have no way of selecting a single cross type sensor manually outside the center. Canon has much more emphasis on the usability side, the 19 point AF system (all cross type) runs rings around the systems found in any APS-C DSLR.

3. With the same set of lenses as above, is 5d3 a worthwhile upgrade?
