    Watching the Olympics last month and now some football games over the weekend and tonight, it seems like all I am seeing are the D3's out there with black lenses. No more blankets of white lenses on the sidelines. I would imagine that for all you Canon shooters out there it will be the best time to pick up the bad boy lenses/bodies for cheaper than usual. Gotta love that D3.:mrgreen:

    No provocation intended, just stating the sudden change on what pro's seem to be using and how it would affect serious amateurs who buy used gear.

    I'm waiting for the D3x-whatever so that I can pick up my D3s cheaply!

    I'm pretty sure Big Mike was having a bit of fun with you. ;)


    But for all you Canonites (isn't that an ancient biblical term?) here's a pacifier to ease your pain. ;)

    Actually Nikon vs Canon comments asside, I just have to say the Olympics made me really happy. I know a Canon user who is an absolute ****head. The worst kind of idiot with his head firmly placed in his own ****. His quote "I can't wait for the olympics so we can see the Nikon sponsorship signs with all the Canon cameras underneath."

    There's nothing like the sweet justice of proving him wrong (not because he's a canon user, but because he deserves that and a kick in the face).

    /EDIT: What the heck guys is the content filter turned off? The swarewords slipped through.

    As far as the consumer market goes, Nikon had the edge for quite some time due to lens compatibility with the older cameras well beyond that of Canon. It's easier to get a thirty/forty year old Nikon for a couple hundred dollars buy some lenses then later upgrade to a modern body.


    We're grownups around here and know how to use the profanity not only sparingly but properly, I don't really think it's necessary here, I don't use them at all on PL. I thought about turning it on for the F-Bomb but I have not ahd any reall issues with it so far so....

    Haha.. I read that as "Olympus" instead of "Olympics" at first and thought to myself: Hmm, he doesn't sound so bad...

    This is old news, IMO for over a year now and it also depends what you shot, if you are not shooting sports, birds/wildlife or moving subjects then Canon should still be as good and maybe better that Nikon in the studio and for landscapes etc. But Nikon models are cheaper for the same quality level.

    Canon is just waiting to bring out the 5D replacement to trounce everything Nikon has. Then the 1DgMKIII. 21mp Digic V with 15fps. The "g" stands for "God".

    Can't we all just be friends? But really, who wants to switch brands when you're $12,000 deep, anyways.
