Nikon and Canon Step Up Pro DSLR Wars

This week has been a busy one for new camera announcements, with Canon and Nikon both unveiling new pro-level digital SLRs as well as new “prosumer” models. The biggest news so far is that Nikon has finally joined Canon in the full-frame digital SLR market with the Nikon D3. The D3 features Nikon’s new FX format sensor, a CMOS sensor measuring 36 x 23.9 mm, the equivalent to a frame of 35mm film.
