Ken Rockwell again: "Canon 5DIII/6D are better/far ahead of Nikon D600/D800"

I use both brands actively and find KRs comments trollish.

Perhaps he's using his trolling for good. Who knows?

My standard landscape equipment set-up for hikes is a 5D3/24-70 II and D800E/14-24G plus maybe an EF 70-200 in case I feel I may need the length. Under this scenario on a tripod/monopod, there is nothing clunky about the D800E. If I am shooting handheld, I usually pick the 5D3 because the fps is snappier. I mostly shoot centerpoint and recompose so both cameras are great in this scenario. Thank God Nikon mostly fixed their LV implementation. My D3x is awful in this regard. My only covet for the D800E for landscaping is the 5D3's well-coated back LCD.

Nikon provides many small features that Canon does not. For example, a 10-pin connector that allows one to connect devices and leave the hot shoe available. Of course, Canon has since copied many features I first saw on Nikon cameras. Also, there were many features Canon reserved for their 1 series cameras that have found their way to more affordable cameras ala Nikon.
