Great new cameras from Nikon and Canon

It's an exciting times for photographers.  Especially when it comes to cameras.

Like any new technology, it takes a little while to get from the initial concept to a place where advances mature and start to plateau.  Beyond that, there are small changes, but they seem to be the icing in the cake.

It appears that we are approaching that plateau now in digital photography.  Camera manufacturers are starting to settle in on the number of megapixels they offer in a camera, the autofocus abilities and the ability to capture images in low light.

The choices are dazzling.  In the last few months, Nikon and Canon have both introduced new flagship cameras as well as their high end prosumer models.  Each has its target market and unique selling points.  For the professional shooting sports, reportage or lifestyle, both the Nikon D4 and the Canon 1D X offer staggering capabilities.  And for the advanced photo enthusiast, the Nikon D800 and Canon 5DMkIII provide great image quality at a more affordable price.

 I know I'll be digging into the details of all of these over the next few days.  Here are a few links I've already discovered that seem interesting.
