Yeah but Nikon has Ashton Kutcher, and it sounds fancier when you pronounce it in the British accent "Nick-ohn"

I'm from the UK and right or wrong I've always pronounced it 'Nike-on'!

1. how old are you?  can't you just do a research and make your own judgement about buying stuff?
2. you are in canon forum and post  a question of switching to nikon?

base on (1) and (2), i can see how smart you are...

all digital camera nowadays allow you to yield a good images... if you are not there?  blame your technical skills instead of camera.

want to know how good you are?  COVER YOUR LCD WITH BLACK GAFFER TAPE, then go around the neighbor where has different lightings, take images... go home, load them into computer and see how many of them you can have without much of post process...

It's all where things are in the product cycles....NOBODY lives all the time at the top.

very great point of viewing "...It's all where things are in the product cycles....NOBODY lives all the time at the top..."

Or get a Nikon... FE or similar.

Always pronounced it 'Nick-On'  not nigh-con or knee-con.  Don't really care if I'm right.

what if tyho's "investment" in Canon is a 300D and a 18-55 efs???

He may very well be right to sell his kit for £30 and buy a low end newer Nikon. Everyone is up in arms like he's using the 5Diii or 1Dx and reckoning the tech is a bit shoddy or something...
5Diii, 60D, 500D, EX580, loads of crappy flash guns... 28mm 1.8, Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art, 50mm 1.4, 100mm macro 2.8, 24-105mm 4L, 70-200mm 2.8L, lensbaby composer...

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?
In short, NO!!!!

You may have a point but when the O.P has not taken the trouble to give us this information or look back at the multitude of threads on this site 'debating' this same topic, many of them initiated by first time posters, usually with the net result that it becomes the Canon vs Nikon DR debate, you can understand that many of us feel their heart sink when the topic rears it's head again, and why some posters fuses have been somewhat shortened on the matter.

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!

Looking at that example, exposure accuracy and shadow detail.

I'll buy it for £30 and he can even keep the lens!

I saw one from a dealer with a guarantee for £35 recently and was too slow to jump.  Great for a holiday body or timelapser (though really want an 8 or 10mp, xt's are getting there, 20d's still a bit pricey.

Hang on, you asked a question and posted a sample, I pointed out some obvious issues and you get all defensive, and called me boy! How does that work?

It is up to you how seriously you take this stuff, but you shouldn't be surprised if somebody answers a question you ask, it is a forum......
