| p.2 #20 · D4 users, is it lacking sharpness compared to 1dx? Less detail & slower AF? |
D4 wider latitude greater color depth
Using DXO mark as a measure of which is better? I hope you aren't serious, greater color depth... interesting. I won't even comment.
Say what you would like, but I have pretty much concluded for most things that matter the 1dx is a step ahead of D4. For most people, yes true that they don't need to switch systems just because of A particular generation of cameras....things can change with the next. However, if you are a pro who needs the best tools available to make their life easier... switching systems because of something like a 1dx might not be a bad idea.
As I said before, many well regarded photographers and reviewers have agreed 1dx is ahead of nikon:
Peter from a better bounce card http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IznKQgo5e0
Andy Rouse switched systems as I pointed out earlier (excellent wildlife photographer) http://www.andyrouse.co.uk/blog/223.php
Xerodigital guy which I posted in beginning of thread...
Reviewers who flat out stated 1dx is ahead of D4: digitalrev, thatnikonguy (matt), and many others
And last but not least, I own the 1dx and can say it IS objectively better in most regards...and for me personally subjectively better in every way.
As others have pointed out, it won't give you better photos...but it will make getting the photos you want easier than ever. And the colors out of the camera (for people/wedding photography) are far better in my opinion than what a D4 gives you.
Nikon makes great cameras, I used D3s back when canon's bodies weren't at nikon's level...now it's the other way around.
D4 = excellent
1dx = excellent plus some more
And please don't say I'm "trolling", I use both canon and nikon. Can people not state what the better body at a particular time period is these days w/o being called a "troll"? Heck I even pointed out things which are better in the D4 (battery life, extreme low light AF).
I suggest you reread your own statements. they are fairly well directed and defined as already a forgone conclusion and your attempt to stir up some "questions" within a group. I shot canon for 5 years and had more product failures on the high end product then the lower ones.
I use tools that must work all the time. my confidence in canon was broken years back. I tried they failed and that's my opinion.
as to the DXOmark, well its got a reference, a database, repeatability, and no ego or axe to grind. you, you have opinions which can be viewed at times as rather subjective in nature
does my life revolve around andy rouse (whoever that is) or peter? from the better bounce card (yet another self made mystery on the net). this weeks opinion from people I don't know.
if it makes you feel better to know for a moment in time you have the best of the best so be it. in the end there is no award for it. it's an opinion. and it can be rather short lived in this world. but, I am really glad you feel so strongly about the camera you own.
remember you pick and choose as we all do what we want to believe.
you smack of amateurism.
as Alfred E. Neuman says: What, me worry?
