As it stands today...
The Noise on the interether have been steadily rising for Canon's 5D Mk.II. Forgotten is the misbegotten 1Ds Mk.III's focusing problem. Furthermore, Nikon D700 appears to have been shunted aside and only to be mentioned in comparison to the 5D Mk.II.
The Noise on the interether have been steadily rising against Nikon's pricing of the D3x. Gone is the acclaim heaped on the D3 not so long ago.
But I have seen the light, well..., my aching shoulders have forced me to see the light. And my wallet, as well.
I now longingly yearn for a Pentax or something along the lines of a micro-4/3.
