    Thanks sooo much for the comparison.
    I was actually in bit confusion that which camera should I get either Nikon or Canon. All the way Nikon bodies and glasses are cheap but Canon gives you professional feel.
    And after reading this comparison I am going to get Canon for sure.

    Nikon DX810 with DX sensor ???

  • Tudor

    You are comparing a camera from 2014 to one from 2016! this doesn’t seem very fair, does it?!

    2 years a go Canon did not even have

    Thanks for your articles, I find them fantastic.
    From my point of view DxOmark has always been more sympathetic to Nikon than its competitor Canon. They will know why. In this case, it is more than evident that Canon CMOS are far superior to the Sony technology used by Nikon. With its 6,000,000 pixels less in the sensor gives you much + quality and freshness of image. And in the video section we say the sensitivity that offers the Dual Pixel CMOS AF in focus transitions. Nikon D810 July 2014 / Canon 5D4 September 2016. White and bottled …………… .. … .Canon always !.

    Gracias por vuestros artículos, los encuentro fantásticos.
    Desde mi punto de vista DxOmark desde siempre á tenido más simpatía a Nikon que a su competidora Canon. Ellos sabrán porque. En este caso, es más que evidente que los CMOS de Canon son muy superiores a la tecnología Sony empleada por Nikon. Con sus 6.000.000 de pixeles menos en el sensor te da mucha + calidad y frescura de imagen. Y en el apartado video que decir de la sensibilidad que te ofrece el Dual Pixel CMOS AF en las transiciones de foco. Nikon D810 julio 2014/ Canon 5D4 septiembre 2016. Blanco y en botella…………….. ….Canon siempre!.
