    Oh no!! not another canon vs nikon.

    Actually, it's not. I was just thinking. I always thought it was stupid that people argue about which of these two camera is better. This is like comparing an SUV vs truck. Both will go off-road but one is made to carry heavy load cargo and the other is made for people. The D700 is obviously going for speed while the 5Dmk2 is resolution. They're two are completely different camera. So next time you see or hear another one of these argument, just use my truck VS suv analogy. :mrgreen:

    I definitely wouldn't mind having both... but investing glass for both can be very expensive. For me, the ergonomics of the Nikon bodies is what made me choose them.

    At least we can pretend it's a new thread even if it's only for 3 minutes

    Theres a reason people argue this point. They are both DSLRs in the same class....

    There is really nothing wrong with discussing camera gear. When people stop caring about facts and reality in general, thats when it goes downhill. :thumbup:

    same price range class... but very different class. Both in college courses, but different major.

    It's very simple... you do need speed or resolution? That's it!

    I wish they were a little more alike. At least from a Canon standpoint I'd like to see a more advanced focusing system. FPS isn't a concern of mine but I understand it is for some.
