    Don't worry, Ben, Canon will come around, and bust out with a new product that'll make all the ship jumpers reconsider the move... but that might take a couple of years. :wtc:

    his argument is always "L" this, "L" that... he even admits how much he loves my D700 and 14-24, so I give him shit about it all the time. I don't mean it literally. :big grin:

    You mean like ... the 5D MKII? There is noting "new" in Nikon's line up. Still just cameras with buttons and sensors. You make it sound like Nikon invented some sort of new image capturing device that blew a hole in the world of photography; it's just the way of technology.

    yeah i suppose you're right... just seems like slim pickins is all.. there's the rebel line, the 20/40/50d, 5D(2), and the 1D series is all that canon has to offer for the digital world. Know what i mean?

    All of which still take great pictures, and to be totally honest I have not seen anything from any Nikon shooter that would make me at all convinced that a camera has anything to do with anything except gather data. The 1D and 5D are great cameras that take great images. Same with every prosumer from the 10D up. Even the Rebels take great photos. Same goes for Nikon and all their cameras in the past 5-6 years. I just don't see the hype? Yes the new Nikons do high ISO well. So what? I still can't afford one, and by the time I could Canon would be the best at high ISO. All of which is pointless because with my 20/30D team of cameras I still get great images and make plenty of money with them and have no real reason to complain.

    you're right of course. I guess i was just feeling a little buyer's remorse, wondering if i didn't go the wrong way when i started buying my gear. I can't afford to switch now that i'm invested. it'll pass soon enough. :o
