Digital SLR Cameras - How does yours rate?

I've been going through the cameralabs.com website and am impressed by their video reviews and range of cameras reviewed. http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/di..._reviews.shtml

How does yours rate and does the rating match your experience? (the Nikon D700 rates at 95% if you drop the value assesment - I'll add a 2nd % and the dpreview % on the end). http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/

NOTE: As dpreview has changed their rating scale, (which used to closely match cameralabs) I colored the new ratings in green and the old in red (as the older rate higher - add 10 to the green scores ).

Apparently, 82%.

For all things photography related, I usually rely on dpreview.

Ratings are subjective anyway. The Nikon D700 rates 95% if you drop the value assesment. (dpreview has the D700 at 94% but their rating system has changed)

I've used DP review before and they are very thorough - I do like the video reviews from cameralabs.

My Canon EOS 1DsMKII isn't on the list.....

Great full frame camera that you can pick up on the used market for a fraction of what it cost new - pro level, weather sealed and heavy.

mine is 86%, until you're in the bush and can't recharge your batteries, and splash a bunch of water on your camera. Then mine is 100% and yours is zero.

These things rely on some standard set of priorities, which generally doesn't match mine.

I have a Canon T1i which I use mostly for aerial photography. No camera is ideal for everyone but this one works great for me. Sharp clear pictures, fast accurate focus, lots of pixels, light weight and rugged.

I was in the camera shop today and this photog comes in she has 3 camera's (T1i & T2i's). She was buying a couple of new lenses. These camera's fit her perfectly.

When I first saw her come in and saw her slew of Canon's I looked over expecting to see D7's or D5 mkII but no, she's a Rebel!

Nikon D40.

When you consider that I bought this rig, new with two Nikkor lenses for under US$600.00, I'd say that it rates pretty well.

The 5D mkII rates near the top with 91%. The 1D has the new dpreview rating of 89% which on the old scale would be close to perfection. My dream camera, the 7D rates at 93%

I'm guessing you have the equally awesome D700.

dpreview have completed their review of the Sony A55: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sonyslta55/page18.asp

...I'm now looking forward to the Canon 60D review! Preview: http://www.dpreview.com/previews/canoneos60d/

Funny, I like Pentax and Minolta and have been very happy with my P&S cameras - Makes me wonder if I should be looking at Canon or Nikon.

...I may just check out the K200D!
