So, my question posed is to those of you that have shot with both Nikon and Canon--which way would you steer? And why? I don't want it to turn into a debate over which is better--but just general thoughts as I pick up some new equipment next week. Thanks in advace.
Well I recently switched from nikon to canon as I really wanted FF and liked the IQ of the 5d. With that said, Nikons nail AWB MUCH better than cannon. It's not even close.
As for what you should do, go with whatever spurs you on. If your nikkor glass is decent (i.e. near mint and top of the line) then you'll get back most of the cash when you sell them. I recently unloaded roughtly 5k in nikon gear for around 4400, but I was patient, all equip was in LN, and all in high demand.
the d80,d200 are great cameras as is the 30d and 5d-- just decide and start shooting.
