5D III + 24mm TS-E vs D800 + 24mm PC-E
When I wrote the 5D III vs D800 review, some Nikon shooters screamed "bias" when I was the first to reported that the back LCD had a green cast and live view critical focusing was difficult to nail in the field.
Later on, I did some tests with the Canon and Nikon lenses I had in hands but kept the results to myself since I only had a single copy of each lens. That's why I suggested Roger for this task. He seems to enjoy testing lenses by the dozens!...Show more →
Thanks very much for your candid summary; I appreciate the risks in your position. Similar to yourself, I find the Canon TSE lenses my most frequently used and creative landscape tools. Lens quality generally has a greater impact upon limitations of IQ than camera body, and in this regard the Canon 17 and 24 II TSE lenses are really terrific. Like yourself, I always use Live View exclusively with the Tilt-Shift lenses, usually with an external monitor:
The Canon implementation of LV with electronic first curtain is also an appreciated feature. Mirror lock up is a totally obsolete feature for me. Now that Canon has demonstrated comparable high ISO performance to Nikon with the 6D, I eagerly await the high MP, better low ISO Canon body.
Meanwhile I got a 6D to extend my night photography and have sent in my trusty 5DII for IR conversion.
