    Not meaning to champion Nikon, just pointing out that that specific point is not an absolute. And it's not something that is set in stone, so it could be a different story at some point in the future.

    Don't worry about jumping, only find the real reason why you need to make the jump. Both Canon and Nikon are great camellers and each has their strength and weaknesses. I started out with a Canon and now I also shoot with Nikon. My personal opinion on this 2 systems are listed below;

    Nikon
    - Have many impressive sharp lenses (native)
    - Body mechanical function especially auto-focus is generally faster
    - Some say good egonomics e.g. like almost has a button for everything you need to set (not my cup of tea though, I'm absent minded)
    - Image quality wise are mostly known to be vibrant and colorful (if you like the saturation)
    - EV bracketing has higher range
    - CLS
    - Better on camera image processing



    Canon
    - Higher megapixel (which you can optimsed - try shooting with a medium format lens)
    - Beside some good copy of prime lenses, it has a bigger lens mouth which is adaptable for a large array of non-native lenses which includes Carl Zeiss, Leica and even Nikkor.
    - Function and setting are grouped, but for me it works better as having to scroll through the menu, it becomes a reminder of sort if there are other setting I will also need to adjust. (see, absent minded pple like me gets reminder of other parameter needing attention due to changes made in one)
    - Generally allow a higher degree to tweak your camera setting which allow me to preset (only 3) for the different lenses I use.
    - the higher megapixel model really does capture more details, relavant if you are making large prints or shooting experiments (the latter is with the help of non native lenses as the premium grade L lenses are to me not affordable)


    Higher megapixel doesn't mean it's all advantages though.. longer time needed for transfer, supposed to give you more noise if not for better noise suppression measures.

    I am happy shooting with both systems but I favour Canon for the final image quality and Nikon for it's speed (until the 7D came along, the 40D was pretty fast as well). The lesser focus point on the Canon is preferred as I enjoy shooting with manual lenses.

    Its important that you know what you want to experience out of photography as both system are able to provide and each has their little short coming. They are after all tools to help you achieve what you wanna do.

    The pros and cons will also be influenced by what photography means to you;

    Is it going to be your work, or just a hobby?

    Eg. Having L primes sure is fun and shiok but does the price justify professional long term usage if you want to only shoot primes? Nikon might be a better choice.

    It also depends on how much you charge/how much you earn/how many bodies you are planning to get/what features you need.

    For me I'm still contemplating on a jump to nikon from my 1DsII as i feel my body is outdated and i would appreciate the affordability of nikon primes to be mixed with some wide/tele-zooms.

    Don't need lah. I just use sunscreen to write on your UWA then you will have permanent Nikon watermark, can already, no?

    (why does this feel so deja vu?)

    Jump.. by all means. Nikon sucks BIG TIME. The blardy camera cannot even take a decent picture handheld in lowlight... all blurrish.

    When are you going to sell your Nikon equipments on heavy discount? Don't forget to contact me...
