Canon 5D Mark III
In the end it all comes down to one question: is the Canon 5D Mark III worth $1,000 more than the new Nikon D750?
In my last post on this topic, I compared the specifications and concluded that on paper these cameras are basically the same. In handling, they’re basically the same. So, without actually shooting with them – say when you’re browsing an online camera store or standing at the counter of your local camera shop – you’d have a hard time giving Canon your money when these cameras are so similar.
Does that change when you start shooting with them?
With that question in mind, I set out to shoot these two machines side by side and see whether the Canon can realistically continue to command the premium price.
