Photography: My newest decision – Canon to Nikon?
As a lot you know i been a die hard fan of Canons since i started, but since the day ive started i always said this to my good friends and fellow photographers… I feel like i should of been a Nikon guy and heres my look on things. If i was handed a Canon first which i was my buddy Mizarks Rebel XT to be exact that he traded for a Racing seat haha, I more then likely grew to go Canon all the way. But if i was handed a Nikon say D40, I probably would of ended up with a D700 by now and who knows! Maybe i would of said i want a 5Dmk2 now! haha, but anyways…
The last couple days or well its funny the last 36 hours i posted up my 5D Mark II & lenses For trade amongst friends via facebook. I would not trade outside (Craigslist, forums & yada yada) just makes me feel better who and where my Cameras going too :). I visited a car meet yesterday and let a friend Brian Kato of Platinum VIP know I’m looking for a trade and guess what 6 hours later, SNAG find his buddy that was very interested…
Both partys were very happy, Yes im VERY w our trade But as you can see and no your not trippin. I still have my Canon 70-200 which will/is for sale/trade for an equal Nikon lens which will probably the 70-200 2.8 EG Ver 1.
Half my friends gave me the WTF!? REALLY!??? and other half of my friends are jumping for joy and hitting that Like Button on facebook…
what did i lose/gain.
21Mega Pixels to 12 & that’s very near half that gone!
higher res & light weight
No more video for me
More affordable lenses, Do some research and compare Canon L’s vs the Nikon Equivalent you’ll see what im talking about
easy to use, everything! the 5DmkII was structured switch everything off with you right thumb & trigger finger…
and trust me much more, i know i know..
the colors you get from a Nikon & Sharp photos is what caught my attention, ive used/borrowed this camera and simply sold on it
slightly quicker then the 5Dmkii 5FPS from 3.2?
More sturdier & tough
Auto focus System amazing & awesome in low light situations which I run into all day everyday, im a Night Photographer 😛
Nikon glass awesome though very price
So this is where you come in. What do you think about both Camera body’s, lenses & maybe about the company overall. There has always been a big HEATED argument about both Cameras and i wanna hear this from our readers or maybe what do you think about my trade, Be nice haha. Also PLEASE don’t get it twisted. I LOVE my canons and i love getting to love my Nikons 😛 but In the end of a day a Cameras a Camera.
Looking forward to see what i can show you guys in the future! goodday!
