Im in the need to upgrade my equipment and am having trouble deciding what to buy. I currently shoot on a Nikon D1x with a Nikkor 24-120mm VR f3.5 5.6, Nikkor 14mm f2.8 & Nikkor 60mm Macro f2.8. My line of work is weddings/portraits and really need a camera that can handle a hi ISO with minimal grain and no back focusing issues. Ive read a few posts and feel that the Canon 30D would be sufficient for what I do. I understand that a 5D is renowned as a wedding industry standard but I am unable to afford such a beautiful spec camera until I sell my Nikon D1X. The information I have ready on your & other forums, I have come to the conclusion that a Canon 30D with 24-70mm f2.8 & 70-200mm f2.8 IS would make magic happen. I guess the main question I have about the Canon 30D is the following: 1: Will the colours on the 30D be as good if not better than what Im currently used to with my Nikon D1X? 2: Will I be able to shoot at ISO 800-1600-3200 with expectable grain and how large will I be able to enlarge prints before its not expectable at these ISOs? 3: Are there any back focusing issues with a 30D. I cant stand my D1X because of that problem, I need to shoot 5 shots to get 1 good one. 4: If I shoot images in raw mode, will I be able to copy and paste attributes to two similar shots rather than going through the whole process on each individual shot. When I edit my raw images from my D1X in Adobe Bridge I can copy the attributes and paste those setting to a few images with similar exposures. 5: Batch converting raw to tiff or Jpegs is this easy with the Canon software. Ive never had Canon gear before but have a few friends in the industry that shoot on a 20D and are rapped in the results. Its going to be an expensive upgrade so I dont want to purchase all this gear and find that a simple upgrade to the Nikon D200 would have been a better choice. Im currently not happy with my Nikkor lenses and semi happy with my D1X but all in all Im getting way better vibes from the Canon gear rather than sticking with Nikon. Your thoughts would be much appreciated. Tony.
