Canon EOS 5D Mark III
The Canon EOS 5D Mark III represents a significant advance over its predecessor. It's fast, flexible and can't be faulted on image or video quality. It's a well-specced piece of kit at a reasonable cost (the price below is for the body only). The Mark II's successor has been well worth the wait.
Nikon D800 (Body Only)
It's easy to fall in love with the Nikon D800 on account of its build alone. It's a very 'human' construction that manages to pack all of the key shooting tools into a compact space without leaving you overwhelmed. The pictures themselves are bright and packed with detail. It's a great package all round, at a very competitive price.
