    I'm now in the indecision stage of choosing between 5D Mk2 vs D700. I used to be a Nikon user, switched to Canon 5 year ago, and now on the verge of going back to Nikon as I'm taking up HDRI.

    Decisions...

    It's almost double the resolution , and look at the price. btw according to dxomark , a900 has better dr , color depth . Only loses at low light iso. Not the other way around . Of course i'm talking about base iso.
