NIKON or CANON!!!
i want a full frame camera, AND both make a "semi-pro" full frame camera and that's the one i'm shopping for.
Canon 5D Mark II
the cons to upgrading: my old lenses (all nikon) are all DX, meaning they are made for the 1.6x sensor of my Nikon D5000. so, basically, my old lenses will need to be sold with my old camera.
pros to upgrading: well, obviously, a full frame sensor (just like the old 35mm film sensor size). plus both have a high ISO (take better low-light photos).
facts about the cameras that make the decision about which to get really hard:
nikonfx 12.1 mp, canonfx 21mp (= massive file ...what if that large file size kills my computer? extra cost)
nikonfx is 6.3 oz heavier(and also larger) than the canonfx.
nikonfx is better in low light but the canonfx has better resolution. not that i print posters or anything!
nikonfx has a built in flash, canonfx does not.
nikonfx costs more than the canonfx (we're talking like $500 to $600 for the body). nikon lenses and accessories (flashes, etc.) are also more expensive for some reason! guess you pay for the name.
i am already familiar with nikon's settings, though the D700 is a little different. i am not familiar with canon's settings but supposedly it is really easy - way easier than a nikon in general.
so, what will it be? any advice?
this is worse than picking out furniture. frankly, it costs more too!
