Nikon D700

D700
Review Date: Jan 12, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,150.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: 14 bit color depth. Fully customizable. Low light capability. Size and outstanding build quality.
Cons:
None yet..

The images produced by this camera coupled with a proper lens, are the most film-like I've yet seen from a digital camera. The D700 is built like a tank and handles like a Porsche. Fast accurate and precise, this state-of-the-art Nikon is quite simply, fantastic!

Review Date: Feb 14, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: terrific image quality, contrast and color. Light weight.
Cons:
67mm filter size is a bit odd, other than that...Nothing negative.

I've owned several copies of the f/4 Non-IS, and also the f/2.8 IS, and the f/4 IS is my favorite among them all. Great image sharpness, color and contrast. This lens on the XTi is my new combo for travel and just about everything else. Another outstanding example of Canon technology and commitment to quality. Well Done Canon!

 
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

85II
Review Date: Oct 25, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,850.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Image quality, build quality are second-to-none.
Cons:
Price...maybe

Having owned a fair number of Canon lenses over the last ten years, I will say that for me, If I could only own one lens, it would be the 85mm f/1.2 MkII. The build quality is top drawer in all respects, the images are to me, the finest any lens could hope to produce. I have no reservation recommending this lens, it's worth the investment.
