And ... I have spent a lot of money in some glass for the Canon EF mount - switching to Nikon is not a matter of saving (hypothetically) 500$/EUR, its to buy a lot of Nikkors ... oh, impossible, I cannot replace all the glass I need because Nikon has not these options ...
you must have more as is in your signature then....
EF-S 10-22 | 60 || EF 24 | 40 | 100 | 70-200 | 400 || 2 x 40D || 2x TC
i woudl have no problems to switch .... except for the money i had to invest.
It's just that simple:
- Nikon has no 5.6 400mm option (which is lightweight, has great IQ and cost me just 1240 Euro new)
which makes a good 11 800mm with the TC
- Nikon has no 4.0 70-200 option (which is lightweight, has excellent IQ).
- Nikon has no 4 lens element 40mm (or 35mm) lens with excellent IQ and contralight properties.
I am shure that Nikon produces excellent products but the Canon product range gives me the chance to fullfill my requirements in terms
of a good combination of image quality + compactness/acceptable weight + affordability (?right word?). Bodies and lens are a tool set
which acts like systems always act: It is the combination of the pieces which gives the system its higher order capabilities
