This shot was a stitch with a canon rebel xt (8 MP) and the Canon 70-200mm f4. The majority of my other shots were taken with the Canon 5d, though the older ones were taken with Nikon dslr's. Photos taken with Nikons at low iso appear to handle increases in exposure in ACR better than Canons-- meaning they show less noise. Your mileage may vary. There are certainly a lot of options to choose from.
