Nikon D4

Shooting with the beast at the moment. Nikon loaned me a D4 for a couple of weeks with the standard 24-70mm zoom and one of my favourite lenses, the 14-24mm. With the standards zoom and a flash on, the thing weighs around 3kg - a real arm killer. Amazingly, it is lighter than the D3. When the D3 came out in 2007, it was a real game changer. I doubt that the D4 will be that much of a shock to the system but it's pretty impressive.

Being a Canon shooter, I had some problems getting it set up he way I wanted but as usual, using a top of the line pro cam like this is a joy. Everything is fast and precise. I prefer a Canon I'm afraid but that's probably because i'm used to them. I had trouble with the focus point wandering all over the place for instance until I learned how to lock it. 

There's a different tonality to the images to what I saw in the D3's. The typical result with default setting and Picture control set to the standard setting seems softish but high resolution and sharpens up well in Lightroom. Interesting.

you mean that this is much easier than all canon(s) ?
