Nice work. I kinda skimmed over the review (long day). I've always thought (just by observation) that Nikons photos are little bit darker vs Canon which has a nice balance in the colors. But I wonder with you shooting both, do you take in account where you should point the AF to get the best metering? I think I'm saying that right. Or basically did you try to point both cameras at the same area. Not including the panning shots.

Nice shooting. In some of the shots I could see the heat coming from the pavement. love it!

I understand what you mean. I had metering set to point and 'scene'. IE to best combine everything to be overall exposed correctly. So when taking the photo I'd use single point and choose the same point. Then recompose to as close to the exact point. This keeps it as 'fair' as possible.

Then others are on full manual.

Thank you.

Great write up, excellent objectivity in comparison. LOVE the lack of fanboy attitude for either brand.

Awesome pics at a tremendous event.

Only thing cooler would be to build a rack that held the two cameras side by side to take the same shot at the same time. Sounds simple, huh?
