if he indeed did jump ship to Nikon now, I would be surprised since there were many people jumping ship to Canon from Nikon because of Nikon QC and dishonest customer treatment with its D600(which is now confirmed to be replaced).

Nikon did never issue proper FW update to the camera with many many FW related design flaws, and now it suddenly replacing it with a minor updated body.
this is really you know rude to us who actually bought a D600 camera or current D800 owners having experienced the infamous left AF issue.
 they should have admitted these 2 overrated toy cameras actually have many hardware and software related issues and should have announced recalls.
But Nikon has never admitted it and just replacing them , it is really stupid , in the long run they will lose a lot of loyal customers who bought high end FX Nikon bodies and would have spent a lot of money into Nikon F mount.

Seriously that company is choosing to please wrong kind of cheap headed customers who just buy a cheap body and kit lens and all done, stupid.

Nikon betrayed us and even shafted.
I am still keeping at least two Nikon bodies (D800E and D600 for now) but I am not sure I will keep them if they really announces the D610 and discontinues the D600 without recalling it(for the infamous oily dust issue) or announcing real solution to fix the FW design flaw (it does not allow controlling iris in video mode).

Nikon is fraudulent and cheating all of its long time loyal followers like us , I think I was very right to have decided to go dual mount in last Oct.

Canon seems to be much better in QC dept and much more honest with its loyal customers.

Of course gear matters.... take a 800F5.6, a 600F4, a 500F4, 4002.8, and a 200-400F4.... use the boxes they come in, and you can make a life-raft....
The best camera is the one in your hands

...Just in case...



 ;)

Will that support a man + camera gear? That looks like a white lens in the avatar. Are you jumping ship or walking the gang plank. If a big boat called the titanic offers to pick you up, you might want to hold your thumb out a little longer. Is this like a new tv show that grabs your interest by creating a mystery and is then cancelled before the mystery is resolved?

So after jumping ship for the weekend and shoot nikon only with a friends equipment, this is what I have to say about nikon.

1. The DR is better, but not as much as I expected.
2. I couldn't stand the ergos, it drove me nuts with the ISO button not being as fast to change as on canon.
3. The AF with primes wasnt as good as my mk3s. Yes, the left AF point on the d800 was slooooow.
4. Flash exposure was very nice, but I missed my RT. :/
5. Overall, it wasnt too bad but I prefer my canon.

I couldn't help but LoL at some of the comments. CR has a sense of humor.
