Re: Here's my plan for 5D Mark III - does it make sense?

Let us know how you like the 6D.

The problems I have had with Nikon are numerous:  a lens that died within 24 hours, a lens that was badly miscentred, a body that started corrupting files, then D7000 with terrible backfocus which had to go back to Nikon twice because the first time they made it worse. Then I got a D7100 on which the left focus points were off. I didn’t even think to check until I saw another post with the same problem. Of course, with the D800, they had left AF problems, then with the D600 oil and dust. I used to enjoy Canon a lot and should have stayed really. My 20D developed a minor fault with the flash-shoe and I switched. At the time the Nikon D200 was a good camera and you’re right in that Nikon sensors are renowned. Having said that, the skin tones in D7000 and D7100 are not to my liking and both cameras overexpose in bright conditions. I think Canon really had a breakthrough with the original 5D, and the 7D has a good following. I am torn between 5D and 6D but I don’t think my future is with Nikon. It will be costly to switch.
