Full frame? Canon vs Nikon

Who all has one? I know Amber does, but I'm wondering if there is anyone else? I am really hoping to upgrade to a full frame sometime in the next six months, and I keep reading about the 5D mark II's focus system needing to be upgraded, and how great the Nikon D700 is, so I'm seriously considering jumping ship. Does anyone have any opinions on the matter? Amber, if you read this, have you had any problems with your mark II?

I have the D700 and I LOVE it. I've been a Nikon girl all along, so I can't comment on Canon, other than from what I hear on ILP. There are lots of people jumping ship, not only because of the focus system, but also the noise factor...I guess someone even said that Nikon's D300 (crop sensor) had less noise than the 5D. If you are on ILP, search around a little bit--there are TONS of threads on it.
I've done entire sessions using ISO 2000, and the lack of noise is VERY impressive. Can't go wrong!

No problems focusing on my 5D Mark II...but I'm using pretty much only L glass.

I just wish I could get either! HAHA! I just know I have heard some GREAT things about the Nikon D700 and how well it handles high ISO.

Ditto Sadie! I would LOVE either! LOL. Seriously, though, I have recently been wondering the same thing. I am dying for an upgrade of some kind (the lack of really useable ISO on my Rebel is killing me) but I have the same curiousity about switching to Nikon. Especially since I only have my 50mm so I haven't really invested a lot.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. I only have one canon lens, so it wouldn't be too big of a deal to switch. I think I will have to try both out first. I can't wait until the day that I can actually get one!!

Just got the D700 a few weeks ago. Sooooo love it. So glad I did it and never have to wonder again about upgrading or when the next upgrade would be, etc. I still use Noiseware on my pics because I like the way it looks, but really wouldn't need to at all. Got it, a 50 1.4G, and the 105mm macro and feel like I'm set for a loooong time. Do it!

Lauren, I was just thinking about you actually. Are you going to take a ton of newborn shots on your new LO? You're getting close!

Kristen, for some reason I thought you switched and upgraded! Do you feel like it's making a big difference already? I'm excited for you, that is so awesome!

I am hopefully going to get some good practice on my new baby. I just found out the gender last night (boy!) and now I can start preparing Biggrin
