caad4rep: I’ve read your www blog, so have a better understanding. I’ve had no dealing with Nikon service, but in two services with Canon, it was responsive, excellent, and fast. Just hang in there with Nikon, and your problems will be fixed.
You have a huge edge over us, in that you have a D800, a set of Nikon lenses, including the magnificent 14-24mm, and no huge inventory of Canon lenses to sell. You have a staggering edge in low ISO high dynamic range in the D800 over Canon. If you shoot weddings, with fast shooting of white dresses and black suits in high contrast lighting, that dynamic range would be wonderful. But you don’t seem to do that type of shooting.
My suggestion to you, is to closely examine what lenses you need and will buy. You determine if Nikon or Canon can supply those specific lenses that YOU will use.
I treasure my Canon 100L macro with 4 stop IS (Image stabilization) with both angular and lateral correction. My superb lightweight travel lens (70-200 f4L IS) is not matched by Nikon. I love the relative cost and incredible performance of my 500 f4 L IS lens. Perhaps a Canon 24mm tilt shift lens is just what you need for landscapes.
If Canon offers a lens or lenses that you must have, then change. Otherwise, stay with your Nikon system. It will produce great pictures for you.
