Wow! What a review. A long read but incredibly thorough. I like his conclusions: Nikon is in the hunt and the two excellent cameras are different. Take your pick.NeilCam said:

I don't agree. I think his approach is essentially sound. So far the criticisms I've seen seem to reflect the criticizer's agenda (ala Paganini and his 10 posts on DPR and Fred Miranda) or are hair splitting. I believe Bjorn could care less about trying to hold Nikon users to the fold. After all he really criticized infrared and called the 3200 ISO noise issue as he saw it, didn't he?Iliah said:I certainly enjoyed the review too. But I'm not sure an early attempt to compare cameras will bring any good to Nikon name. Too many open holes in methods IMHO. Second, I'm not sure what is the purpose. To hold Nikon customers from migrating to Canon? To show those who doubt they are making a right investment that Nikon is currently better? As you understand, people will look for different and "other side" opinions, and any flaw in the review will be scrutinized, used against the initial purpose, and mocked.
