Why does this camera beat all of Canon's cameras? I use both Nikon and Canon and I think this site is very misleading with its comparisons... Is this site owned by Nikon? that would be kind of dirty.

Maybe you gals should have your eyes tested. As far as I can see, snapsort has given the win to the Canon 1d mark iv so I don't quite know what you are whining about. Jeez!!! Learn to fkn read or go see an optometrist ffs

It is pretty clear that this website is wack.  I mean, really?  The DX format, enthusiast level D7000 is better than the flagship Canon?  The Canon has a full-frame sensor with 39 cross-type focus points... BUT, WAIT! The D7000 is lighter, cheaper and has a built in flash, so it's obviously better.

Let me get this strait, the Nikon D7000 is a little bit better than the very expensive Canon 1D mkIV?
Well thanks God I bought one last week, I guess I wont regret it.
But to be fare IMHO, I don't think the D7000 is better than the pro 1D mkIV.
