i don't think anybody here should be brand-loyal, unless you are paid by Canon, whoever has the product better for my use & budget, i will go for it.
agreed, I have looked at the nikon system. Its very promising but I dug alittle deeper to see If i'd REALLY Switch. What is keeping me here is the prime glass. Thats Really about it,
- Canon 135mm f/2 Performs better than the nikon 135mm f/2 DC and is a whole lot cheaper.
- Canon 50mm 1.2L performs better than any 50mm from 1.2-2.8, Which I love and Nikon doesnt quite match.
- Canon 24mmL II is alot cheaper than nikon alternative and equal IQ.
The catch is now is that canon makes up this savings over nikon with their new Bodys. Jeez, $849 for just a T4i? Seriously...
Nikons bodies are cheaper but they get you on the glass. Flash wise, nikon is alittle cheaper but canons 600RT is ridiculously priced. Almost make me want to just use PW's.
Can't switch, but with all these new bodies from nikon offering alot for less, Makes me stare at my aging 5D...
Canon 135L has no real competitor in Nikon's lineup but I disagree about the 50mm. I mean, unless you really can't live without f/1.2 there are many nice alternatives. Also, 24mm is a replaceable focal lenght. There are 21, 25 and 28mm by zeiss, a new 28mm by Nikon, or even 35mm IMHO doesn't make that lot of difference.
