I am always interested in the "latest and greatest" in photo equipment. Several years ago it seemed that Canon had leaped ahead. I could not resist the price and specs of the 5D2. Except for manually focusing for single Landscape images and video the camera was a real disappointment. The D90 was a better back up at an Event. I actually think the D7000 at half the price is an improvement and even for my "Home Movies". The D800 is twice the camera compared to the D7000 and now we have the D600 at a more affordable price. I seriously doubt that I will ever waiver again from Nikon or be fooled by Canon. Not saying they do not make good cameras or that Nikon does not need the competition, just that their specs are overstated. Does a camera capable of shooting at 104,000 ISO necessarily produce great pictures at that setting?
