I am looking to get either one of these two camera...
I shoot mainly on tours and probably my new 1month old baby girl.
since they are going to cost at least 5k including lens, I am having a hard time deciding which to get.
1) Canon 5DmkII. + 24-105mm f4. Cost maybe $5k?
Better Image quality. I have compared the high ISO samples of 1dsMkIII with the D700 and it seems that they are about equal if u downsample the 21meg pic to 12meg. And the 1DsMkIII offers better quality at low ISO. And canon is saying the 5DmkII will be significantly better than the idsMkII in IQ. wow.
No lens change. Huge plus on convenience. a good and light lens with IS. 24-105mm f4. GREAT LENS
Video recording. Minor plus. I already have a canon HF10 which will probably record much better video.
2) Nikon D700 + 105mm VR + AFS 50mm f1.4 + WA?? (sigma 24mm?) Probably cost $6k.
Better AF. The AF seems to be much better. But I am more concerned with accuracy rather than fast tracking, etc. People seems to say nikon's AF is more accurate than canon's. Is that true?
More versatility with f1.4, macro, VR, etc. but tedious to go on travel.
any other pros that I am not aware of?
I guess I will have until end Oct to decide when the canon5DmkII is released...
