    Not so any more.. Nikon's pricing is now neck to neck with Canon.. and is even cheaper then Canon in many aspects.. where a combination of durability and cost are concern.. I will cite one example.. the EN-EL3 Lithium Ion Batteries that Nikon users.. conpared to the BP-511 Ni-Cd's that Canon users.. Dollar for dollar the Nikon's batts last longer.. on the D70 - has been pushed to up to 2000 images.. or more conservatively 1200+ images.. the BP-511 cannot come close to this not even within an arms length reach..

    Yes, it also goes to show that the Canon electronic design in their DSLR are not up to par. As far as I know the 2 batteries are the same in technology except maybe the contacts that prevents both form interchangable.

    There's been lots of measur(bat)ing of start-up times, battery life, AF motors, this and that between the two brands.

    I hope we can all put all this back into perspective when we consider that technology will always move forward be it right now or next month or next year. What may be slow or non-existent now may not be the case in the next model cycle. The R&D departments don't exactly sit around with their thumbs up their asses.

    What we can't easily upgrade, however, is our photography skills. You can't saunter into CP, AP or MS Color and ask to load up a Portrait shooting module into your photography skill database, like you can ask to buy a Canon L lens.

    The topic implies that C vs N, there'll be an outcome, but there isn't. Each brand offers something different to the consumer, and the consumer should be clear about his needs before making his choice - otherwise he'll be jumping ship pretty soon.

    D100 - 60ms

    Reply to Bob -

    My Coolpix somehow inspires me to have more fun in my weekend shoots. Hence Nikon for me.
    Nikon bodies for DSLR cuz I've already a group of friendly F-mount lens owners nearby.

    Let me have some fun adding oil to fire...

    "Oh oh!!! Darn!!! I missed the 'moment' because the 10D is darn bloody slow! Could have gotten him diggin' his nose if only I had the D100!!"



    Technical difference, yes. But any pratical difference? NO!

    "And I officially declare Nikon the winner!" And I'm a Canon user. Happy?

    missing moments and blame it on the camera...how convenient.

    A good photographer will learn to anticipate the moment and work around any handicaps of his/her gears.

    20ms sounds like a whole lot of time (heck, the D100 is 25% faster than the 10D!) until we once again place things into perspective:

    1 second = 1,000 milliseconds

    20 milliseconds = 1/50th of a second

    Big numbers, small units.
