Whew, this is getting confusing. I know lenses are more important than the body but only those knowledgeable will realize that. Newbies will always opt for the best body they can get because of the hype. Before you know it, they're invested in the system already. Should I fear that one day, Canon system won't be as popular as before? It happened with Kodak, IBM and Pepsi. Will it happen again?
Yeah, the only thing keeping me in Canon is my lenses. If I was starting out right now I would totally go Nikon. Not just because the bodies are better right now but for the reason that Nikon seems to understand what the consumer wants better than Canon.
