Hi,

I enjoyed reading your Canon reviews and took your reviews seriously. You made a business decision and i’m sure most of us would consider it strongly as well, if we were in your shoes.

But if I read your new Nikon reviews, i’m sorry but I would have trouble believing them.

If an official Canon website talks about a new Canon lens, we all take it with a grain of salt, because we know that they can only praise their own product, etc. It is hard to believe that you have decided to switch to Nikon because after a couple of hours you decided that their equipment is superior.

Having said that..perhaps your Canon reviews were clearly biased as well.

You do excellent work, and i’m sure your Nikon reviews will be great. But your credibility suffers.

UPDATE (03.24.2010): I have removed the reasons why I left Canon, due to many negative feedbacks. I don´t want to say anything bad about Canon.
Err... doesn't leave much for reading.

Where’s my Canon 1D Mark IV field review?

Good question!

There has been less activity on this field review site in 2010. This is due in part to hard work with my Svalbard book project, photo workshops and expeditions. I have also had more problems than expected in getting a Canon 1D Mark IV camera for some serious field testing. For some reason I have not been given priority and the result has been only 3 days in the field with the camera. This is much too short a time to give you a field review especially regarding AF in different situations. To be honest, the Canon 1D Mark IV seems to be not that impressive compared to the Canon 7D I already had.

Four weeks ago I needed a fast camera for some action shots of the fast flying hawk owl. I couldn´t get a 1D Mark IV camera, and I was so frustrated that I called Nikon and asked them if I could borrow the new Nikon D3S camera. No problem! In the kit bags were also the Nikon D3X and different lenses: 14-24/2.8, 70-200/2.8 II, 300/2.8, 400/2.8, 500/4 and 600/4. Almost immediately I canceled my cooperation with Canon as a “Canon Master”.

I had never used Nikon D3 cameras before, but after only one hour I got extremely satisfying results, and after two hour I was convinced! Especially the D3S; it was extremely fast and precise, and the image quality even at ISO 2500 at sunset really shocked me.

The following weeks I did more field tests with fast moving birds, high ISO shooting and difficult light conditions. After 5000 exposures I was so happy with the image quality, sharpness and colors of my pictures from Nikon D3S and Nikon D3X, that I decided to sell all my Canon gear. This was a shocking decision for me, Canon and my photo colleagues. I´m 100% sure that this was the right decision. Image quality for me is very important, and I don´t see any reason why I shouldn´t use the best equipment available. The photographer is still the most important part of creating a photograph, but I also appreciate good equipment.

I have always loved to shoot with full frame cameras like the Canon 1DS and 5D cameras. I was very disappointed when Canon was still using the 1.3 crop factor in its new 1D Mark IV. I’ve been waiting for the 1DS Mark IV, but 2 weeks ago I suddenly discovered that this camera already existed as the Nikon D3X. The Nikon D3X has almost everything that I have been waiting for as an upgrade for my old 1DS Mark III. So now I’m already shooting with my “1DS Mark IV”.

A week ago I also accepted an offer from Nikon to become a Nikon Ambassador. It is strange to shift so fast from Canon to Nikon, but when I decided to sell my Canon gear it was normal to partner with Nikon. I´m now very happy to be on the Nikon team, and with in my opinion the best camera equipment on the market.

So what happens now?

First of all, I will do no more Canon field reviews, and I will delete all Canon field reviews from this site. I will soon redirect this site to nikonfieldreviews.com where I will do both Nikon field tests and articles about photography (not only gear). I will still focus on image quality and how equipment functions and handles in the field.

Secondly, I will cooperate with my good friend and photographer Roy Mangersnes when building up the new nikonfieldreviews.com. I will also focus more on getting support from sponsors etc. so it’s possible to publish field reviews more often.

Finally, I want to thank all of you loyal readers for your interest in my field tests, and I hope at least that some of you will follow me over to the new site.

All the best!

Sorry for my ignorance but I don't see the connection between the two posts. Perhaps I am missing something.

stay tuned for the next website, nikonfieldreviews.com

you will soon see about 2 days of nikon field reviews, extorting how sharp and good the image quality is, then one final post saying that he has never used the k7 before, but after 2 hours he was amazed by the fact that he didn't really need fast af. the shake reduction and weather proofing is marvellous, and he can BBB 20 k7s for the price of one d3s.

you will see a few photos from the k7, which look exactly the same as the photos he has been taking with the d3s, and to end it off you will see one very happy guy brandishing 20 k7s in the snow in truimph.

stay tuned, like i said.
