HI. I am thinking of buying a new DSLR. But I also, at some point, want to buy a video cam. The Canon 5D Mark II had many many good things going for it as a digicam (including stunning pics at high ISO, such as http://www.flickr.com/photos/erikfiv...7607361459243/ ) but the best part is that I love its video HDTV output too!
I have a Nikon D200 now and only that once-popular 18x200mm VR lens, so it's not like I am hugely invested. It's just that I do like the Canon offerings.
1. Between D700 and Canon 5D mII, which one would you recommend and why? D700 used to have higher quality at high ISOs than 5D mark I, but the mII seems to have made huge strides. (Only drawback: huge files for the 21mp on the 5D! WHich means it may be slow too?)
2. Would you buy a digicam+videocam? Or should I simply buy a high quality HD cam separately? (Which will be more expensive!)
