Still laughing?

Yes, because it really doesn't matter. What next for this thread? "My dad can beat up your dad......"

It's clear to me that both the D7100 and 70D are excellent cameras in their own respects. Once a decent lens is attached to either I doubt one will 'destroy' the other.

More concerned about lens quality.

Yep. As long as your lens outresolves your sensor, you're golden.

I own one of these and a D7000, now my backup camera. I purchased it for two reasons. 1. The number of pixels I can get using FX format. 2. consistency in tack sharp focus. I shut every other attribute off, that's what Photoshop is for.

The down side of this camera. If you do not use Nikon Pro series lenses the sensor will amplify every weakness of your consumer lenses. The bottom line, be prepared to spend $4000.0 for a wide angle and telephoto zoom, this camera does not tolerate off brand or kit lenses.

If results that amaze are your objective spend the money, your first days shoot will have you throwing away all your old photos, the pictures I take, amaze me. The wife no longer asks: do you really need that? Now she want's to know when it is going to arrive.

Good luck with your endeavor.

Guess that DR advantage doesnt mean much compared to light lenses and accurate AF..

Uhhhhhhh, yeah. DR advantage is basically irrelevant to sports photography.

Light lenses and accurate AF doesn't mean much when on a tripod using manual focus.

Plenty of black lenses in that photo.

Are you the Canon shooter with the teal shirt and camo bucket hat (looks like he has both!)?

My view on this whole NvC debate is this, Nikon produce some of the finest bodies I have seen. They feel great when handled, well built.

On the Canon side the lenses are better than Nikons. The Nikon 80-400 old model used to be a poor relation to the Canon 100-400. There are other cases in the lens department that Nikon does not beat or match the Canon equivalent, or does not have an equivalent.

I notice this more at airshows where you can see Nikon users having Sigma lenses in a lot of cases. To me that indicates that Nikon do not have the lenses that people want at a price that they can reach.

I am a Canon user, who came to Canon from the wet film days and the one thing I have noticed is that bodies change and people buy new bodies fairly regularly whilst not getting lenses as regularly. So I stick with the company that produces the lenses I want.

In my mind Nikon has always been the camera for landscapes, portraits, etc. Whilst Canon is associated with action, wildlife, etc.

One further note is that many sports photographers here use white lenses for their action shots, so if they can earn a living using Canon then I am sure the Canon kit is good enough for me!

Hello

Well my 70D and accessories have now been ordered.
Should receive in the next day or two.
Just in time for the Autumn season, always great light!

My 20D still serves me well and not planning to dispose of it just yet.
