    i think it's becos the resident photographers here are also star wars fans. Then someone said something about canon have white lens while nikkors are all black (save the grey ones) and dunno how they link it to Nikons being the dark side cos all (except the grey) are black while Canon's L lenses being white is the opposite of the dark side being the jedis.. just play along

    Teach you a formula, buy a dslr and a standard zoom lens(dun have to be the best), do a few job with it, use the money you make to buy another one(2nd hand) with an excuse that you need a back up camera, then do a few more job with them, and buy another one....pretty easy....just dun use credit card to buy....use cash you make from your camera. I am working on my next one...he he

    Does the jedi theory applies to Minolta? Minolta have white lens too, so does Vivitar and Cosina....

    If a nikon user uses a Vivitar or Cosina white lens, then how?

    The Dark and The Light.

    The Dark was dark because the sunlight was shielded by The Light. Which in turn is called The Light because the sun rays were mostly abosrbed by them.

    When the war started or why the war started was unknown. The Light and the Dark began to fight each other, using massive destruction of weapons like Dark Cabres D2X loaded with 1200-1700mm and countering with Light Cabres 1DS MKII loaded with 1200mm.

    Due to the nature of The Dark planet, no sunlight means no bright colours, all weapons created were thus Black in colour. For The Light, too much sunlight was available, the weapons would go koyak when under the sun for too long. The war was in favour of the Dark Side.

    However, The Light, after much research and fighting, they developed the Light system, which was white in colour. This in turn allowed the weapons to be used under the hot sunlight.

    There was an even fight between the two now. The winning was just a matter of light years time before everything can be resolved.

    There came The Dark greatest invention. The similar Light Cabres. These weapons were very light in colour, similar to that of The Light. It was very well camofluged and The Light didn't realise they had enemy forces within them. The colour used was purposely grey but near white. This was to allow The Dark warriors to recognise their own infiltrators.

    And who shall now win... the saga continues...

    here is something for you to munch on. For simplicity`s sake, keep to 2 brands. easier

    isn't it because Nikon can hold shadow detail better?
    so all the dark pictures are nicer?

    Too bad it's not the other way round. You could have easily used Nikon lenses on Canon's body via an adaptor.
