The point and confusion is this.
Several,Canon posters of which you are one are raving about the superiority of Nikon.
Well that's ok but it's incorrect. It takes more than a Sensor to take a great image. You need glass,AF build etc.
So it's not as simple as wow the D800 is the best camera ever. It lacks AF accuracy to get the best from its excellent sensor at all times.
Sure the Mk3 doesn't have the same DR as the D800 at low ISO does that make it any less of a good camera because it has everything else the D800 lacks and...Show more →
For me, AF and fps are useless. I focus using LiveView and I shoot at 1 frame at a time. Improvement in resolution and dynamic range ( Image quality overall ) is what I am after. I am hoping Canon is also after this.
As far as glass goes, I use a lot of Zeiss glass, so I am not necessarily tied down to a given system.
Me, and I venture to say quite a few others are awaiting to see how Canon reacts to the high resolution great dynamic range of sensors Nikon has introduced. I do have Canon glass and am used to Canon so I am willing to wait a few years to see where things shake out. If I don't see any progress from Canon towards a better landscape system, I'll be seriously looking at other choices.
I don't understand what upsets you when we discuss the differences between the Nikon sensors and Canon sensors. We are not stupid...we know there is more to a camera than the sensor, but for landscape photography, sensors are a very important ( I venture to say the most important along with glass ) part of a camera. Everyone brings up the AF and fps...but for landscapes, those are meaningless.
