I do prefer Nikon's, but the 5d Mark 2 is a damned sexy camera. Borrowed someones when I was last in London and it was so, so good. Some of the best 5D Mark II photos you'll ever see: http://www.blakemanphoto.com/blog/ Just looked up the D700 and I was quite surprised how low the amount of pixels is, especially considering the quality of those images at such high ISO. Did you have to run that through anything to reduce the noise? The small number of megapixels is part of what gives it such a punch at high ISOs. I don't do any noise reduction, and everything is basically as I get it from the camera, minus a bit of white balance work and such. I use Capture NX 2, which is by far the best software to use with NEFs. This is 25,600 ISO: [image=http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/ufiles/60/362960.jpg] This is why we can still be friends, Josh. . Still need to get my film from Colorado developed.... Looking forward to seeing those .
