    Wow the magnesium of Canon is better than Nikons !!!!!!!

      Canon is STARTING to understand they need to play catchup.

      The problem is that Nikon still offers better useful features and for $500 less. Canon is just copying things like magnesium body and focus points, having been so far behind.

      Its nice progress. I hope they push Nikon to step up a notch next round as well. After all, for $3000, you should get a bit more.

        The D800 wouldn’t have been 36MP if they weren’t playing catch-up with Canon.

        Nikon is still selling 12MP FF technology that Canon had in the mainstream back in 2005.

        Agree that the price of the 5D3 is a bit on the high side… but it’s not all that bad for people who use a lot of AF because the 5D3′s AF is better than anything Nikon ever had.

          And that completes your trolling quota for this week. If you like 5D III so much, just buy it and be happy with it. No need to spread false information on these forums.

      5d2 and 5d3 the key mirror-box are plastic, only the outer skin Mg-Al, Canon did not say that. It is not a really alloying body.

      d300, d700, d800 all these are with alloying mirror-box.

      Wish you a happy

  • Apology Misdirected

    Right thing to do (apologize) but wrong target. The admin doesn’t need an apology. Fred should be apologizing to the person above with a DS kid.

  • John

    Really people? The Admin provides three outstanding resource sites free of charge, and this is how you say thanks? By posting tasteless idiocy mocking those with disabilities?

    Back on point. I’m a Nikon guy. D300s, D4 pre ordered from B&H. But this camera interests me. My uncle is a sports pro, and close buddy a doc film maker. Both shoot Canon. I personally don’t love Canon ergos. But, I’m seriously considering ordering one of these and giving it a shot.

      I deleted most of the offending comments, sorry, I should have done this earlier.
