I was looking at the Nikon D700 when I realized it’s essentially Nikons answer to canon’s 5d Mark II so I decided to look up the price and found it at J@R music world. I’ve never purchased anything from them so who knows how reputable they are but I have”heard” of them. I think they used to send out catalogs. It’s funny though that that EVIL ritz camera is trying to screw people by selling then A Canon EOS 5D for only 200 dollars less.
Can you imagine how stupid you would feel if you bought The Older camera. What a rip. It’s those old brick and mortar chain stores that give photography a bad name.
So I was looking at the Nikon D700 and found that it’s cost is within a few hundred dollars of the Canon 5D Mark II so I looked up the stats
Max resolution Canon=5616 x 3744 Nikon=4256 x 2832
Effective pixels Canon=21.0 million Nikon=12.1 million
Sensor size Canon=36 x 24 mm Nikon=36 x 24 mm
ISO rating Canon=100 – 6400 Nikon=200 – 6400
It would seem something has to give. If Nikon can’t lower the price by quite a bit there really is no reason to buy it. Another Canon advantage is the Movie mode which the Nikon lacks.
