Re: Buy the 5DIII because...

You can complain about the 5.5 fps burst rate...but I don't care.

I find that quite good my issue with the 600 is more connected to the distribution points of the AF - I find the to crammed in the middle. I'm "complaining" about 4 fps on the 800 - I'd rather have less resolution and 5.5 fps - which would have made me a happy camper.

You can complain about the top shutter speed of 1/4000 of a second, I can't remember the last time I needed 1/8000.

Can live with 1/4000

You can complain about the autofocus speed, and I acknowledge the d4faster. But once I figured it out, I was fine.

Please do let me know how you figured it out - because that may actually help me understand if this is he camera I can live with.

You can complain about the weather sealing, and I will acknowledge  it doesn't match the d300s.

Never complained about weather sealing

I can directly compare my shots vs pros that were shooting top of the line Canons, their state finals photos have been widely published around here.  The Canon color space seems cartoonish like in terms of over saturation.

Are you sure that they don't retouch their images? It really is the mags fault for picking people's images that are over-saturated...

Maybe this was easier for me, since I followed one team and knew the players and their tendacies. But over several games, in varying light conditions, after ceding them the prime spot on the baseline...I had no problem getting great shots and better iq.

How did you do a whole season with the D600? I thought it only came out a few months ago?

So while you search for the holy grail, I am getting pro caliber prints at a fraction of the camera cost. So I guess it's how you look at it....I am ecstatic and think that Nikon nailed it.
