I'm still in two minds with regards the articulated screens. I can definitely see the benefits in using them. There have been a few times when I'd like to have been able to see the screen without lying in the dirt myself or craning my neck lol.
The only thing I'd be concerned about is that its something that moves and if it moves, its liable to break, or at least the wires connected to it fail over time. You could guarantee this would happen just outside of warranty too! It wouldn't be a major selling point for me personally. I'd be more interested in the camera's low light/noise/iso ability, max shutter speed, etc.
Nikon make the better sensors, in terms of noise/iso performance and the D3s still holds the title after a couple of years now. Canon are currently beating the pants off Nikon in the HD video side of things though. In fact many advertisers and film makers are switching to the Canon 5D MKII precisely because of it video prowess. If memory serves, they shot the season finale of House MD on that camera. That's qutie something. You literally have to spend the best part of £10k more for professional equipment that will rival what the 5D MKII is capable of. We have one here, together with the 16-35mm f/2.8L USM. All I can say is the results are stunning!
It will be interesting to see what Nikon comes back with in the form of the D800. I hope they have overhauled their video mode to rival, if not exceed the 5DMKII. But then, what will the MKIII offer lol?? Its endless.
