    I'm seriously thinking to sell my Nikon D80 with 18-55mm & 55-200mm lenses and replacing it with the Canon G10. The reviews read sound and I get tired lugging around two dSLR bodies. (For those that don't know, the D300 is staying put.) If Nikon had an equivalent I would look at that, but the P5100 doesn't shoot RAW plus other stuff. The shot comparisons between the two are ridiculously in Canon's court. The extra $$$ doesn't bother me too much. Or is the G9 almost as good?

    I have a DSLR in each brand right now. Nikon soon to take the lead as soon as UPS gives it up.

    Nikon film bodies galore though. Minolta bodies as well, no Cannon film though.

    I'm a Nikon shooter and I would easily buy a Canon P&S over a Nikon.

    That said replacing the SLR with a P&S, yes you're stupid, is that what you wanted to hear? :p

    They are complimentary to each other, I'd say save and buy both.

    Uhhh Garbz, in case it passed you by, I have a D300 in the stall that's not going anywhere.. But cheers on the Canon vs Nikon P&S debate. I just can't see where Nikon is coming close to match Canon in this field.

    The P5100 was in my opinion never a competitor to the G9. The only thing I really liked about it was the size and the nice flash. The Canon G-series is very good and impressed me (excluding the G7). BUT> Nikon released a new P&S that is suppose to compete with the G10. I do believe it does Raw (finally).

    Yeah usayit, only today did I find out about the P6000. Haven't completely read the reviews yet, but thanks a lot for the link. I still have doubts that it will fully compete with the G9/10.

    Yeah sorry I totally missed that one.

    As an aside, do Nikon even do anything worthy of the term "compete" in this market? I seem to remember Nikon Coolpix were in rebadged Fujifilm Finepix cameras or something like that. Even now the products really look very similar.

    well, get what you like best of each company, why not?

    as the p&s is independent of your SLR-lenses, go for it.

    there is nothing like treason ... why stay loyal to any brand for other reasons than logic? Any emotion is totally out of place, both companies just want your money anyway ;)
