Well, sort of.
In all the testing, reviewing, returning and selling of camera gear one thing that has come to light is that there is really very little separating most of these cameras from each other. Some will best others in one area by quite a margin, but in other areas it could be the other way around or a difference of negligible proportions.
Something else I have come to realize is that the cameras I have decided are my favourites are not necessarily the latest, biggest or bestest out there right now.
I have found something to like in almost all (except Sammy, again), sometimes features I wish other brands or models have had.
And that is the beautiful thing. You can’t really go wrong.
I had the mighty Canon 6D for an evening with the fantastic plastic 50mm f1.8. It is an awesome camera, really light given its FF sensor and I DO wish that Q menu was present in Nikon bodies (I have never, before Nikon, had to consult the manual, or ask a friend, regarding changing basic camera settings).
But, having compared it’s files to the Nikon D7100, which I prefer over its full frame sibling the D600, and also to various Sony NEX files (3n & 7), whilst I certainly don’t find it lacking it doesn’t really stand head and shoulders above the crowd.
It should, for double, triple, maybe quadruple the money.
To others it may, but I gotta say that to me the D7100 reigns supreme, and the NEX is hot on his heels although all that may change in the next week or so with announcements from Camp Sony!
I promise to resume wacky editing shortly, hehe,
