| p.1 #1 · Moving from Canon to Nikon - have a question |
Looking to upgrade to the next level of camera. Would love some input from you.
Quick history first.
Bought my first SLR a little over a year ago. Went with Canon T2i and 18-55 kit lens. I used Canons point and shoot prior to that, so buying another Canon was natural progression at that time. Instantly fell in love with photography (who doesn't?).
I sold the kit lens and got the 24-105 f/4. Decided to stop there. I did not invest any more money in to glass knowing that later on I might want to go to a Nikon body. I have learned a ton of info in the last year.
I consider myself an advanced hobbyist and I feel that I'm now ready to move forward to the next camera body.
Originally I was thinking of 5DMII, but I am tempted to go to Nikon (edited for the sake of getting actual feedback). I am not married to neither brand at the moment.
I will only be able to get 1 body and 1 lens (not a kit lens), keeping the T2i for my wife/kids. I am thinking of Nikon D300s with the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 IF EX DG HSM.
I am very much in to photowalking, landscapes and portrait shooting (specially now that it's cold outside). Haven't gotten in to sports stuff yet. One thing that is for sure not on my radar is weddings, just not my thing.
With all that in mind, is there anything else that would be recommended instead of what I have currently picked out? I am looking at this as an investment and not an expense. The cost of these 2 items is right about the budget that I am allocating for this.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
