I'm an amateur photographer trying to buy a DSLR to improve my skills.
I have been using Nikon Film SLRs all along and was thinking of switching to Canon but am in a dilemma because I still have my Nikon lenses. (I do not intend to sell the Nikon lenses and body becos I am still sentimental abt film photography.)
Altho they are not top of the range, I can't imagine having to spend the same or a higher amount getting the same kind of lenses. I currently have the following:-
i) Nikon F80 body,
ii) Nikon F60 body,
iii) Sigma 28 - 200mm AF lens (1:3.5 - 5.6)
iv) Tokina Wide-angle AF19 - 35 mm (1:3.5 - 4.5)
v) Nikon 50mm lens (1:1.8)
The reasons why I want to switch to Canon are as follows:-
i) Many rave reviews about Canon's speed and most professionals choose canon DSLRs
ii) Canon D400 is a few hundred dollars cheaper than Nikon D80 for the same megapixels; and
iii) I already have a few Compact flash memory cards which Canon D400 uses but Nikon D80 does not.
With the above concerns, what is the best course of action?
- Should I just go ahead to buy the Canon D400 and start an entire new collection of lenses?
- Is it worthwhile to invest in a canon DSLR and get started on the right footing?
- Or should I just get the Nikon D80?
Sorry if these questions have been asked before, I couldnt find the threads addressing this issue, so thought I would start a new one.
