I was just wondering.... why is it that for anyone who moves from Canon to Nikon, he/she is considered coming over to the Dark Side or when a first timer, first purchase is a Nikon camera, we welcome him/her to the Dark Side?

What happens when one moves from Nikon to Canon? To the dark side? Or.....

Urm... 85 1.2L and 17-40L, 16-35L, 17-35L are just some Ls that are not white... these glasses are shorter and not that susceptible to heat, so no need to use white to prevent the flourite inside the elements from being affected.

Since mid 1940's Nikon has been the main photo gear for the professionals. Then Canon took over the lead during the 1970's with their good and effective marketing practices leaving all the Nikonians wondering what had happened. On the side note, Nikon did not spend enough research into marketing and did not want to spend the advertising dollar.

Then to all the Nikon fans, cheers came back with the surprise launch of the D70. Big advertising budget was placed to put the D70 up front until there isn't a response from all its competitors. A first again for Nikon to put a smile back to all its users. Another sign where no competitor can come near is the fact that you can use all the older manual lenses make by Nikon in almost all the recent DSLRs. This is really thumb up for all those who have invested in the system.

Now for the kill, the D200 is another item on the list where Nikon really put the competitors back to their drawing board. I am sure Nikon has at last realise to create and design cameras from the photograhers point of view is the answer to prosperity. :)
