Greetings, All ---
A heavy disciple of Canon, both film & digital, for over 50 years. Heavy investment in both types: Up thru the F1 and then up thru the 1D2, ramping up thru many bodies in each media-type.
Alas, the debacle of the EOS 1D3 autofocus! To the end of time, it will be inconceivable how a company like Canon could be so dense about that problem with their supposedly flagship product! If they had not been so busy 'stonewalling' their users for over 6 months about this, I and a million others might still be in their camp.
Additionally and years earlier, I bought a Metz 54MZ3 to get way better on-cam flash results than with Canon units.
So I thought maybe I should dip my toes into the Nikon pool since the D300 was getting a lot of good comment about then. And, yeah, the D300 snagged me. All the way thru a D700, D3, D3s and now D800e.
So, tho I get out the Canon gear just for old times occasionally (including the 1D3 despite the questionable repair trip), Nikon is my daily shooter.
Another reason to keep Canon is all the glass I have for that. To this moment, I have no glass for any camera, any alt brand, that surpasses the fantastic contrast and sharpness of my EF 70-200 f/4L IS lens.
