    Just curious - why switch to canon if you already own a bunch of Nikon stuff?

    just not feeling the nikon and I want something with a higher mp and that isn't so old. I need to get new glass too cause some of the stuff I been doing is in very low light like at the converts and I want bright crisp and clean photos. I hate having to mess with the iso and get a awesome pic thats not blurred but its grainy as fuck.

    Isn't so old? Huh? The 5D is almost three years old and will probably be replaced any day now.

    The D300 and D3 are six months old and are state of the art.

    It doesn't make sense to switch to Canon if you already have Nikon gear. You won't get any benefit.

    Dear Nikon,
    My only wish this Christmas is that you come out with a FF camera that's priced around $3000.
    Luv,

    It makes sense if the gear he does have is kit trash and not worth anything anyways. It wouldnt really matter selling it and moving to Canon.
    I did, and couldn't be happier! :wiggle:

    Rumor is there will be a 5D Mark II competitor this year from Nikon at around $3000. Speculated to be named the D10.

    Come to the dark side.

    If you get the 5D, you'll want to drop some coin on good glass. With shitty lenses, you'll get excessive vignetting.
