Congratulations Canon. Honestly, I didn't know they were fighting over you. Not sure they knew it either.
Form, you might be just a little full of yourself. But, glad you have found your favorite system.
It's not me as being more important than anyone else, but rather that as a company they naturally want to appeal to as many people as possible...and if anyone switches from Canon to Nikon, then that's just plain good for Nikon.
My original starting post was basically to share my perspective and experience regarding the things I liked and disliked about Nikon vs my old Canon stuff. I often think that both Canon and Nikon employees do keep an eye on forums where their names come up from time to time, so if they see this thread then they will see one person's honest opinion.
Remember voting, where they say that every vote counts? It's a form of verbal voting, or protesting, or a single person speaking out about their experiences in one vs. the other comparisons...and my original post is definitely less wordy than the lengthy reviews many people post their website links to.
That's all, I'm definitely not more important than anyone else, and I know that to a big company I'm far less important than, say, Marcus Bell switching to Canon or some other prominent photographer writing a comparative essay. But...for them and for others who have considered switching, have made a switch, etc., or who feel in any way similar (or opposite) to how I do about the equipment...it's a sharing of experience and perspective.
As for finding a "favorite" system, it's more like...I am more willing to accept the compromises on the Canon side than the Nikon side.
