Canon EOS 5D

5d_586x225_2_
Review Date: Aug 14, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,900.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Incredible IQ, ergonomics, ff, jpegs are very good, and nice large viewfinder after coming from the D70
Cons:
Viewfinder is dim and hard to read in bright sunlight (Canon doesn't think this is a problem, but there are quite a few complaints on this one). I think slightly overpriced. Tendancy to overexpose, but that may just be me and my Nikon experience.

I was astounded at the IQ of this camera. Some of my images have a 3D look to them. Color and sharpness are excellent. Great landscape camera.

 
Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D IF-ED AF

1998NCP_180
Review Date: Jun 14, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $499.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp, excellent color and contrast. Have a Nikkor 24mm that can't stand up to the 18-35 at the same focal length.
Cons:
AF a little slow, hard to find anything wrong with this lens.

I've compared this lens to the 17-35mm on the D70 and was hard pressed to see the difference in the overall range. If you buy the 17-35, your giving away the extra $900-1000 that you could have saved buying this lens.
