Canon bias?

You said in the Nikon 610 review:
Although Sony may believe the high-grade SLT Alpha 99 is competing with the likes of the Nikon D800 and Canon EOS 5D Mk III (which it does on build quality and price), in reality it’s much more likely to be compared with the Nikon D610.

I do like the Nikon 610 and am impressed with the specs and performance figures. And my camera is a Nikon D5200 - looking for another body and upgrade.

But your review concerning the comparisons left me a bit confused. The Canon 5d3 has much lower specs than the Nikon 610, and Sony a99, yet you degrade the Sony against it, even though its performance figures - your DxOMark figures, are superior.

So, what gives, are you a Canon fanboi? Given the tilt of your assessment, how am I to take your review of the Nikon? That is, where is my money better spent?

Sure, I can take it with a grain of salt since tilted reviews are very common.
