When my bodies break I will buy Nikon as I have a nice glass collection to do all I enjoy.



With hindsight or without the sizeable glass investment ball and chain, I would buy Canon.

As a pro photographer I find some of this very odd. I know a very large amount of photographers that have moved to nikon from canon, yet I struggle to think of a single one who has gone the other way.

The comments about the autofocus is also a strange one. Canon (especially all there zoom lenses) have a reputation for terrible AF. Whereas the (pro series anyway) Nikon's from the D3 onwards have always been incredibly sharp and have AF tracking that even now canon cannot compete with.

End of the day, reputations count for nothing. It's results. Show us your photos...

No ...but I know some who have gone totally from Canon to complete Fuji mirrorless systems ....

It is strange ,as I've mentioned to Col (think it was Col that said it) before that my Fuji was quite a bit faster on the AF even with the 100-400 comparison between my Fuji and my Canon systems without extenders the Fuji is quicker, and with the extenders (X 1.4's) as the X 2's are manual focus anyway the Fuji is way ahead
,as for AF TRACKING the Fuji is superlative ...
