    The old 80/20 rule here: 80% of all photographers will only use 20% of the lens line up.
    Even if Nikon has one, two lenses more, the common lenses are similar.

    it does, because the version number is different!! there's version 1, version 2, version 3.... mark 1, mark 2, mark 3... with IS, without IS.... and so on and so forth...

    Both the D600 and 6D have terrible video, rolling shutter and moire is horrible. The 5D MKII is a great option, and if you have no pref for Canon vs Nikon in terms of ergonomics and buttons, then go for the 5D MKII. If you don't care about video then D600 or 6D are fine.

    I read in the web that the canon word was derive from their goddess name "Kwan non" .Later when they want to sell their
    camera to USA market. They rename to Canon. That is history. so you like Kwan non camera?

    Kannon is perhaps the Japanese expression of Kuan Yin a.k.a. Goddess of Mercy a.k.a. Avalokiteshvara.

    Personally I've tried D700 and 5DMk2.
    I would still go for D700, unless you're doing video?
    Because I wouldn't be using any video function and no point for me to get 5DMk2.

    Depends on what you are doing and do you need video function as well.
