I post this as someone who recently bought a D700. I like the camera, takes great photos. So far I have a Nikon 50mm and 24mm lens. I like primarily shooting landscapes. I checked and it's not too late for me to return this and get the 5dM2 when it comes out. Outside of the fact that a lot of people say Canon's are better for landscape, the big reason I like this camera is the high 21MP resolution. I want to be able to get BIG prints. Really, I could care less about the video mode on the Canon, so all things considered, the higher resolution is the only reason I'd be getting it. So, I'd like to hear some opinions as to why I should or should not swap the D700 for the 5dM2, considering what I want to do with it. I'm fairly new to photography, was into for a while in the 90's with film, but I now live in a place surrounded by fantastic landscapes, so I'm getting back into it. All opinions are appreciated.
