New Axe preordered

March 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I haven't been here for a while, I had a lot to do and you can see some of the results here at fotofabrik. During the last two weeks Canon released the successor of its most popular camera, the EOS 5D Mark III. It isn't a big secret that more than six years ago I was a Nikon user, and my first Canon camera was the original 5D. I moved to Canon because they were offering full frame sensor at a reasonable price and I heard the news that Nikon won't follow them. I decided to switch and now we have two racers in the 5D market segment: Nikon D800 and the new 5D Mark III.

Both manufacturers offer full frame sensors and Nikon has outpaced Canon by offering huge resolution with a 36 MP sensor. I know there are many photographers and tech journalist testing, comparing the devices, writing long reviews without having the new cameras, so I won't do anything like that. I just wanted tell you that I'm not going to switch back to Nikon just to have higher resolution. Honestly, I was considering to do that, 'cause it would be great to have a 1,5x higher resolution camera for the studio works, but changing the whole gear does not make real sense to me.

In my point of view there can be many things more important than resolution, e.g.  massive ISO performance, because a photographer's biggest enemy is the lack of light. 

The new 5D is much more expensive than the Mark II was, and whatever causes the higher price tag, I'm pretty sure that they will sell it at that price.

So, as I mentioned in the title, I've ordered it from Calumet (www.calumetphoto.de) and they confirmed the delivery for early April.
