I am now seriously considering changing formats because of the white elephant known as Sony. Yesterday after careful thought, I have been going around to the various stores in my area, and asking questions about Canon and Nikon. During this time, I have discovered that NONE of the stores in my area will even think of carrying any Sony product. All their Minolta stuff will be let go, and that will be the end of that. So forget about what Sony may bring up to offer, who will carry it? In all likelihood, I find myself having to special order items that I want. What use is that? So what I want, is for all you Canon and Nikon folks to tell me about the various cameras, and how they perform. Is it true that Canon has twelve gazillion mounts? Which one works with the current system? Why doesnt Nikon make a lower end camera with an ISO slower than 200? Does Nikon have a full frame, or will it be Canon only there? Which will be better in the end?
