    What about the DR? Sure that the canon is worst.

    The Nikon has 153 autofocus points vs. around 60 for Canon. This is huge. Also, it will be great to see how the image quality compares at various ISOs.

    Thanks for the review comparing the upcoming D5 and 1Dx Mark II. Of course, I'll be more interested in hands on tests with both once available. Thanks for wetting our appetite in the meantime. It matters not which one your subscribers prefer as long as they are happy with their choice. As a retired person I cannot afford these high end cameras, so will only be able to drool and say, "Boy, those sure are nice. Now let me find a good used Mark III that I can use with my years of collecting very expensive Canon L lenses." I appreciate the fact that you no longer want everyone to lean toward the Nikon just because that's your preference. Alternatives are always good for the consumer and I look forward to your future reviews on both cameras as well as your Hong Kong photos, no matter which camera you use to shoot them.

I sat down with Bellamy of JapanCameraHunter for a lengthy conversation about film cameras - from point and shoot to rangefinders to medium format. We started with the topic of top 5 for street photography, and quickly ran off topic. ?

Groundbreaking. Insane image quality. Epic Dynamic Range. Great value for money. On paper it ticks SO many boxes, and it stands alone without direct competition. And honestly, after in depth testing in studio and in the field... I have no desire to own one.
