After 4 years using Canon gear i am thinking of selling all my stuff and switch over to Nikon to get better sensor performance. The lenses of Nikon are not as good as Canon's but with the Nikon sensor the (DSLR+Lens combi) scores are much better. "It's the combi that makes the picture"
What do you all think?
Keep waiting till Canon gets up (again) with Nikon?
I think this can take a long time... Maby never... Or are there any rumors canon wil get back on top soon?
That's an awfully dangerous question to ask in Canon forums
After waiting for years for Canon to improve their sensors (having owned a 10D, 5D, 1D2n, 7D, 5D2, 5D3 and IR converted T3i) and after buying a 5D3 on faith that Canon's sensors just had to be on par with Sony and other sensors and learning that's not nearly the case, I opted to buy a D800e and have vowed not to buy any more Canon gear until they get their sensor act together. I just got tired of waiting and wanted the best DSLR sensor in a good DSLR that was available. I'm fortunate in that I didn't have to sell most of my Canon stuff to try Nikon (I did sell my 7D tho - I always hated the image quality) so it wasn't a huge deal to try the Nikon. Since buying the D800e, I've only used my Canon's when I need to use lenses I don't have Nikon equivalents for (24 TSE MK II, 500 F/4 IS, 100-400). I love the sensor in the D800e and have come to appreciate the Nikon ergonomics and some of its features like easy, built in time lapse functions, etc. (still hate, hate, hate their live view tho).
Anyway, deciding to switch all together would be tough. It depends what you shoot and whether Nikon offers lenses that'll work for ya. It also depends on how much you value having more DR (which helps create better B&W images as well as color - so if you enjoy B&W stuff, it may be a consideration). I guess the decision also depends on whether or when you think Canon will start producing markedly better sensors. If I were you I'd wait until after this upcoming product cycle plays out and if Canon doesn't introduce sensors that float your boat, seriously consider switching. You'll love the other guys' sensors
Cheers and good luck!
