I think it's pronounced So-knee-kon.
That's just a guess.

first of all, I take my Pictures with 5D MKII and MK III and owner of 7 L-lenses. During the last 2 years I did an update of my Equipment for more than 15.000 € now. Two years ago I considered to change to Nikon due to the innovations they presented with e.g. D800 or D800E especially the high resolution of the sensors. This based on the fact that I sell my pictures as prints and build up a Business with stock photos. Aside the Picture itself the technical data and expected resolutions continuously rising. At that time I thought Canon will follow Nikon and Sony and also be more innovativ.
Today I´m angry about my decision. The reasons are:
- No high resolution sensors with a quality like Nikon
- Arrogance of Canon in their behaviour with their Clients
- Price policy for new II-lenses
The high resolution and the quality of Nikon and Sony shows that this is not a game and that
high resolutions doesn´t mean low quality at low light Images.
Fact is that I will check again how much I will get for my current Canon Equipment and than I will decide if
to switchover to Nikon
And at the same time, a Nikon\Sony user is selling their stuff so they can come to Canon.
I do something similar: I bought a Nikon-branded camera bag.
If you're not stuck on CANON, there are a lot of other excellent imaging machines out there, worth considering.
Nikon D5300 w 18-140mm if you can afford it, fast, good video, no touch screen tho but does have articulating display.
Nikon D5200 - on price reduction or kitted with extra lenses.
Nikon D5100 if you can still find them- low cost, great images
Pentax K-30 or K-50 with 18-135mm WR lens - tough and weather/spill resistant
Fast focusing mirrorless cameras:
Fuji X-A1 or X-M1 w 16-50mm lens fits in your budget, great image quality, good features, interchangeable lens
Fuji X-E1 with 18-55mm lens, taking it up a notch
Olympus Pen E-P5 with 14-42 lens or one of the many other good micro 4/3rds camera systems
All the above cameras compete well, if not exceed in some cases, any APS-C Canon body out there.
