My canon user friends,


what was important for you to choose the canon brand.

*What are the advantages/disadvantages you realised on canon dslrs.
*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.

As a Nikon dslr user,

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

I think, there is no Canon or Nikon. Both manufacturer are producing wonderful cameras and lenses. Why not having both? In Architecture-Photographie, Canon offers an awesome shift-lense 17mm TS (or how it might be called). I´m thinking about buying this together with a 5 d Mark II.

Nikon D700, Nikkor 24mm 1.4, 50mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8

It is mostly of personal preference when choosing; I chose Nikon 'cos it felt better to me.

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 reason I haven't chosen Canon is foremost because of the shear build quality, speed in AF, FPS and superb high ISO performance that the D700 offers over it's direct competitor the 5D MkII.

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...

I chose canon because of family and friends owning canon and I could check out lenses before I bought them. I had also owned a few canon p&s so I had some menu familiarity.

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.

when i was looking for a dslr i was looking at entry level ones. at this time the nikon entry level one was the d3100 and on the canon side it was the t2i. i found that the t2i had a few more features and felt better in my hands. if i had waited a bit i probably woud have bought the d5100 but it wasn't out yet. i'm happy with my purchase though and i'm happy with canon.

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

I went with Canon because it just felt better in my hands..Nikon seem to be bulkier & fit a larger 'mans' hands better.

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..

I Must say I choose Canon because my wife bought a Canon Rebel XT and than we bought another lens and yeah we are start fighting about the camera a lot and then I bought my 7D I'm happy with it and i must say I found the Nikon Camera menu to complicated Maybe i didn't played with it not too much ;-)

I agree with Maik too. I used Nikon and Pentax film cameras previously but having access to both Canon and Nikon DSLR's I tried them both thoroughly and loved them both there wasn't much in it but I felt the Canon menu's and customisation options were slightly easier to work with so went with Canon.

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.
