Hi

yeah...very entertaining thread so far...
keep them coming!

Why Canon? Tell us your positive experiences with Canon, and maybe a few negative ones u would like to see changed. for all you know, we may make enough noise for someone from Canon to sit up and take notice ;)

Why Canon? Because my father a canon EOS 88 camera as my first camera and since I never felt the need to switch, I stuck with Canon.

Ive been a Nikon shooter for over 15 yrs. I was using a F90x and a FM2. But the AF is too slow on the F90x with focus tracking It's bad even with my 80-200 f/2.8 (but non-AFS). Theres so many incompatibility with Nikon lens and bodies these days... if I decide to buy some new lens I probly cant use with my F90x and FM2. Like the new 70-200 VR lens. Have to spend $$$$$ and upgrade body first. Mebbe after 3 yrs that body also wont work with some newer/better lens.

Ive used the Canon bodies often when shooting with friends. I recently got a good deal on an EOS system so I dumped my Nikons and bought it. The AF tracking with the USM lens is superb. Oso no incompatibility with old/new lens and body.

Erwinx has some really good pics of birds in flight with a slower F70 and a slower lens. Over here .
No comments on the Nikon v Canon issue.

I know someone who shoot birds with a F3HP and MF lenses. As I mention earlier there are photogs in early days shooting reportage with Speedgraphic and LF cams and some with old Leica without viewfinder/meter/nothing... Makes no diff to me. If they like it they shoot with it. Ive been shooting with BOTH systems side by side for abt 1.5 yrs now and I know what I prefer in terms of handling.

I think canon is more professional in the DSLR's world.(I have an analog canon)it's true that canon hasn't a manual body now,but you can buy a used budy,for example a canon F1.These machines are in good condition.
And why canon?
My first camera was a minolta!:D
Hm...becouse I have used a canon eos 33V for ages,and I think it's a very good camera.I like it!
