| p.2 #14 · on the verge: 5DMkII to D800 - advice request |
I had 5d mk 1 with 35L,85L,16-35mk2,24-70,70-200
Discovered Zeiss and my shooting style changed so I was enjoying MF lens more than AF lenses that Canon was offering... not to mention Zeiss lenses feels great, so it does improve your shooting experience. I sold off 35,85,16-35mk2,24-70 and switched to primes for Nikon Mount as it had manual aperture control.
21mm ZF2, 35mm Samyang Nikon Mount, 100 makro zf2 and kept 70-200.
When I was purchasing my 5dmk2, I was having the same problem... d700 felt like the better camera for stills but you were getting so much more with 5dmk2, so I bought that instead.
Attached all my nikon manual glasses on 5dmk2 with an adaptor and using them on my NEX as well. This is my current setup and so far so good.
I am in the same situation as you cause I do want to go d800E but I want to wait and see what canon will do before I make the switch.. by then Nikon would sort out their AF problems and I can sell off my 5dmk2 and 70-200mm and I wont look back to Canon ever.
They are releasing products that is not up to the same level.
Sony right now makes the best sensor, Nikon was smart to ride Sony on this one.
what are you going to do when canon releases a 40+mp camera? are you going to ditch nikon and jump back to canon?
, that's a good question. My confidence in Canon's sensor is a bit shaken, so not really sure when it will happen. Also, my next DLSR will be last one, as I get older, lugging FF with 2-3 primes starts killing the fun. I probably will use for next 5-6 years and settle for FF compact,which should be plenty to choose from in 2018 I will made switch only if I am sure I am happy with it. When I was getting Canon, 5DMkII seems better than D700, Canon lenses were cheaper and Canon has much more of them. Now situation seems to reverse a bit, but as I said, this is my last DLSR, so I want to make it a best one. I will still wait until end of October to proceed, but want to get general opinion first.
