    Default Nikon D3 vs Canon EOS 5D Mark II

    Struggling between the above mentioned camera. Can some of the experts here share your comparison between the 2 flagships?

    You should be comparing 5DII to D700 instead of the D3. D3 should be compared to the 1D/1Ds series.

    What system are you on now? Think properly because it's going to be expensive when you need to change system.

    I had the same dilemna as you, not knowing which to get. For me it's either D700 or 5DmkII. I read the issue about D700 with it's 24-70 and then proceed to get 5DmkII. Now 5dmkII has issue too. Either one has it's own pros and cons. Go find out more from the other threads, no one can decide other than youself.

    In my opinion, all the cameras mentioned cannot be compared. D3 and D700 are only 12MP cams but noise control is much better than 1D/5D esp at high ISO. Canon has more interest in producing large photos. The closest flagship cams to compare are probably 1Ds with D3X.

    Eh, you are comparing with 5D Mark 2 and 1D Mark 3? High megapixel does not impact only size of printout but also colours in small prints.

    You can look here, consider the a900 as well.
