Hey Riley

Mate, thats a pretty good find ! I liked the way he tested the AF in both systems. Think more reviews should be like that as he's covered everything that you really need to know about both bodies and I'll be checking out his other reviews.

Cheers

Yep! There are a lot of folks like you and I who don't usually need that capability for the kind of photography we do, so we're lucky that we can take advantage of the Oly image quality and colors. But I do understand that some folks can't. In sports and photojournalism, there's only a split second between the money shot and the also-ran.

I did find another review but now with some more down to earth cameras.
The Nikon D800 vs Canon mk III, caf test in terrible light situations.

Hey Pascal

Watched the vid of the D800 and 5DMk3 comparison ... liked it a lot, both camera's look pretty fantastic but at those prices they should. Was surpised that the 5D seemed to have the more accurate WB and that its shutter seems to be way louder than the 1DX in the earlier vid. The high ISo and the AF are impressive on both beasts.

I'm curious as to why there's no footage of both camera's and that new Sigma F2.8 ?

Indeed those bodys cost stil a lot, but when you go one step lower, what would be now D610 vs 6D then things aren't really the same anymore.
But for that D610 we need to wait for any decent review yet.

For that Sigma lens, it is not even on the Sigma site I believe.
