    So two more Sports Illustrated staffers are switching to Nikon because of the D3

    this proves that the nikon adapter ring sucks ass. why not choose a 3rd party lens with tailor made mounts for both systems? then set contrast/saturation/sharpening to -11ty and "zero" the image in LR.

    I was at some shitty little camera store and the guy behind the counter was trying to convince me that in terms of raw performance, the D300 is better than the D3 because "that's what the Nikon rep told me". I was like "Well, the Nikon rep should be keeping that a secret, considering the D3 is like, twice as expensive" :rofl:

    Nikon speed lights > canon

    Canon glass > Nikon

    For me I get a huge discount on Nikon but I still think I want to go Canon ... just for the 5D

    thats about the only part where nikon is sucking..a low cost fx frame small body camera, besides that with the two new cameras they are about even..except for the godly D3 jijij

    btw I keep being more impressed with the d300 every single time I still cant believe how much better a camera is over the d200..very impressive

    the d200 is a complete pile of shit IMO. I had to shoot a game the other night with it, and I would take my D50 over it ANY DAY. The d50 focused WAY faster, and WAY more accurately. I was really disappointed.

    The staffers themselves, here at the San Diego - Tampa Bay NFL Playoff game

    They've got D3s and all the new glass, 14-24, 24-70 and 400mm f/2.8 VR lenses


    The mkIII is still unreliable, it's like the mkII vs mkIIN all over again

    The D200 does not suck.

    The D300 just makes all other cameras in its class look bad. :sad2:

    Very interesting. What seems to be the problem with the MKIII?
