    You have much to learn about the real world my friend.
    again you're not getting your facts right

    let's make a comparison between sony's flagship , canon's 3rd, and nikon's 3rd

    a900 vs 5D Mark II vs d700

    a900 wins only in terms of resolution and comes 2nd in terms of focusing system

    comes 2nd in FPS.

    5d Mark II wins in terms of value for money and image quality, has HD video which matters for visual journalists. comes 2nd in terms of high ISO noise control.

    d700 wins in terms of fps, focusing system, and high ISO noise control.


    if you ever make an attack at my teachers again, we will have a flame war.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the replys thus far. Well regarding Pros using which brand of cameras, I really think its really no point arguing as "beauty lies with the eyes of the beholders". No doubt that Canon and Nikon are the big brothers in Camera, which is why in the beginning I was only thinking of these 2 brands. But when more and more bros comes in and give feedbacks, at least for me I know that Sony is a brand that is fast catching up, so thats why I would like more information on this camera.

    Hope that bros here don't take take any comments too personnel, but rather treat this as a forum for us to learn more from each other.

    TIA.

    In my opinion the D700 is more value for money as it's basically a repackaged D3. No offense to any Alpha users

    cartman2000,

    you might be right there depending on what purpose. The 5D Mark II is meant for studio work, still life, and landscape.

    I think the d700 would be better value for someone like me in that sense, but i bought a certain camera brand and i'm sticking with it.

    1. If you learned anything about dynamic range and resolution, you will realize that the 5DMarkII does NOT have the best image quality. It has poor tonal gradation, a tendency to clip highlights and suffered from quite a few banding issues. But that's not something you'd learn in school huh?

    2. And if you're that touchy and sensitive about your teachers, then you should not have brought them into the conversation in the first place. And don't you dare threaten me again kid, as I'm not the one who has to hide behind a supposed "education" to compensate for experience.

    Interesting. All these are low ISO and non-video purposes, things where other cameras excel far better.

    Eh. Whatever. You're 18 and think you know everything, though your own arguments contradict your own points. Talk to me again when you learned more than book knowledge.

    1. The 5d mark II does have better image quality than the a900 , and even if it doesn't i dont give a cr4p. They don't teach us about cameras in my university at all. not at all. because we shoot large format most of the time. We learn creativity over technique.

    2. I'm not hiding behind education, i just said i know pros. As for your portfolio, professional, i can't see it anywhere. you seriously want a flame war ? okay. we can meet up in real life, i don't mind, and let's see where the debate goes, huh.

    Ermmm...well lets get back to the original topic shall we?

    Ts just an additional info. Sony alpha dslrs can use ALL minolta af lenses. Basically this means the Sony alphas have access to a very huge catalog of classic minolta lenses to choose from. These old minolta lenses will work perfectly with the Sony alphas due to the fact that Sony alphas are using the exact same mounting as monolta alpha mounts.

    I myself own 2 minolta lenses, which are produced in 1985 and its still working perfectly on my new a500.

    With the selection of minolta af lenses and the support of Carl zeiss lenses, the Sony alphas have a very good selection of high quality lenses to choose from.

    You don't even know what a flame war is, do you? It's ok, you have a long life ahead to actually learn stuff.

    No, it's something you learn in real life. There's no point debating with a brainwashed 18-year-old. Age will bring maturity.

    thats basically a personal attack on krishna91.

    whether youre just defending sony for whatever its worth, or youre just jealous that krishna is at brooks taking photography for a bit more then a hobby, there is a clear cut line between healthy debate and personal attack... and mate you crossed it.

    What are you talking about? Look carefully on the posts before commenting. And have you contributed anything useful in this thread?
    Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony
