Default To sevy: Nikon vs Canon

Hi Yves,
Thanks for your comments and also for taking the time to look at my Namibia pictures on pbase.
I know it may seem surprising to go for the MII rather than the D700 and it was actually a very tough decision. However, the fact is that in order to upgrade to a D700 I would have had to buy a completely new set of lenses anyway (the DX lenses don't work on a full-frame camera and I no longer want to cart around 5 or 6 prime lenses) and Nikon lenses are a lot more expensive than the equivalent Canon. Further considerations were the 21 MB image size and the fact that Nikon will probably soon bring out the D800 and I didn't want to find myself with yet another obsolete camera.
Anyway, I must say I'm very impressed with the MkII - at last it feels like I own a real professional tool rather than a toy.
