This poll made me think in a bit wider perspective than just looking at this and that feature and the related $s / Euros / Kroner ....
Since I went from analog cameras (that I hardly used apart from various vacation-photos) to digital in 2004, I have been in the Canon-camp.
At first it was perhaps a bit by chance, when I chose my at that time 'advanced compact', the Canon G5. At that time I considered candidates from many other manufacturers.
It turned my interest in photography around and I started to learn much more about photography in general and about the many advantages of digital. That was a wow-experience.
In 2008 I was ready to move up to DSLR, and the Rebel / 450D was another wow-experience, that offered new capabilities, investments in additional gear and not least new learning-opportunities.
The latest step was taken this spring, where the full-frame 6D again offered a great wow-experience.
Looking back on this progression I am very happy that I started out with Canon. Many other manufacturers now look as if they would have been dead ends, had I chosen one of them.
And almost daily my Canon-tools have given me photographer's joy - as well as owner's joy.
Looking forward I feel confident, that Canon still has more to offer in terms of additional progress:
- For me as a keen amateur: I have far from exploited the current product-line's advanced capabilities
- And for the future: I expect Canon to be able to provide much of the new technology in this field in a well-planned and long-term oriented fashion, and at the same time protecting my investment in kit as well as in my own knowledge.
Being an engineer I tend to always see the missing details, clumsy features, etc.
So 'almost 100%' rarely come out as my reply.
However based on above wider perspective: This poll is one of those rare cases.
