Canon users why did you choose canon.

*what lenses are you happy and you suggest to others.
*what are the things you wish Canon should have that Nikon already has.
*What are the things makes you happy that Canon has and Nikon dont.
I am asking because I dont see much canon topics around.
Bigger is Better
I believe canon delivers better images on campact cameras. Thats why, on compact I carry a canon. On dslr my personal choice is nikon.
For dslr range, Canon colours are more pastel more warm I think and as far as I know they are better for movie shooting
Bigger is Better
Nikon D700, Nikkor 24mm 1.4, 50mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8
Give me a Nikon or a Canon, heck any other manufacturer, and I will still produce the same shots.
It's as Chase Jarvis said, the best camera is the one you have in your hands.
The glass that Nikkor has is just a little step above Canons if I can believe all the tests made the last years. And the simple ergonomics are better for my hands.
The only thing that Nikon lacks is the great Canon 1x-5x Macro. That would be awesome to have in Nikon mount...
And this is coming from a guy who had the free choice when I sold my Sony/Minolta equipment.
Nikon FX body's and some Nikkor FX glass I believe...
Praktica 35mm analogue just for fun
One of the lenses I would suggest is the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 non vc. This lens can be had at a very reasonable price (normally under $350) and offers tremendous bang for the buck.
i only have experience with the kit lens (18-55), the 50 f/1.8 and the 24-70 f/2.8L all are good, the kit lens served its purpose but i don't really have a use for it now since i got the 24-70
Canon T2i (550d) 24-70 f/2.8L, 50 f/1.8
It would appear Canon is slightly more popular in the UK.
To be honest I don't think this Canon/Nikon argument should exist, both are capable of producing excellent photos & as long as you enjoy going out & shooting that's all that matters..
The whole Canon v Nikon thing bores me, on-line photographers are always needlessly slating one over the other. If you have the ability you'll produce great images regardless of which brand or sites you follow.
