So we all knew this had to happen. We had a review of the Canon 5D Mark III from a Nikon user, lets reverse it and have a Canon user review the D800.
The author of the article does conclude …
To me, this camera is essentially the one I’d been hoping Canon would release for over a year now! Good image size, decent ISO performance, nice video capabilities and at a very reasonable price for the specs, it just happens to be a different manufacturer.
What’s interesting is that now I own one, I’ve found that I’m not shooting with the Nikon all the time… I did a shoot for a web based fashion label yesterday and because they were going to use the images in a smaller format, and taking into account the longer processing times for the large Nikon files, I actually decided to use my old Canon for the job instead. I think in the future I’ll probably end up using the Nikon more like I would if I owned a medium format system, and only shoot when I’m doing a special project or when large files are particularly necessary, which means that, at least at the moment, I won’t be selling off all my Canon equipment just yet.
