[Gear] Nikon D800 and Canon 5D MKIII ISO Samples

[Gear] Nikon D800 and Canon 5D MKIII ISO Samples

The Nikon D800 has been much criticized for its enormous megapixel count. And some have worried that packing 36 megapixels into a full frame sensor might lead to decreased low-light performance. These samples, however, push those worries aside. It's no D4, but for 36 megapixels, I think Nikon should win an award for this. Canon took a different route with the 22-megapixel 5D Mark III, but that paid off, too. See for yourself in the full post!

[Gear] The Most Exciting Gear Week in a While
Even more so than the week of the Nikon D4, this is the most exciting week for gear news in a long time.

I'm keeping the bulk of opinions in the comments section this time...meet me there at the end of the full post!

[Leak] Possible Canon 5D Mk III Sighting with Super-Telephotos

[Leak] Possible Canon 5D Mk III Sighting with Super-Telephotos
ApertureAcademy has an interesting article by Stephen Oachs about a recent sighting of someone who apparently works for Canon. He seemed to be testing a new 5D (or perhaps 7D) series camera. At some point, he also had pulled out a 600mm lens along with a new 200-400mm lens with -- get this -- a built-in teleconverter! Brilliant! See the full post for all the juicy details and photos.
