Well, you know what they say; resolution is nothing if it's not in-focus. Enjoy your Nikon. I know I'm enjoying my Canon stuff, even if I did pay the intro price.

FWIW, the 1DX here I actually cheaper than the D4 for CPS members;)

If there's typos, you can be sure I used my iPhone.

Not what you would expect; I bought the 5d2 at the beginning of the year as my first FF camera (after years of Nikon DX) due to my perceived value of the Canon platform (less expensive bodies and lenses). Every Canon product release since then has demonstrated to me that Canon is heading in the opposite (wrong) direction.

The worst offenses for me are their lenses:

Canon 24-70mm f/4 IS @ $1500 vs. Canon 24-105mm f/4 IS @ $800

Canon 28mm f/2.8 IS @ $700 vs. Nikon 28mm f/1.8 @ $700

I'll probably ride it out with the 5d2 for now in hopes that Canon rights their ship soon, but for now I see no upgrade path with Canon, whereas Nikon is singing my tune this year (28 f/1.8, 85 f/1.8, 70-200 f/4).
