    OK.....

    Most of the guys I shoot with in the horse world use Nikon D1X's and a couple of D2X's. A couple use Canon EOS1 MKII or MKIII. I have always been a Canon person because that's just what I learned on and trust. No other reason. If I had learned on Nikon, I would be shooting Nikon.

    I would like to hear what YOU shoot and why. To me both are great cameras. To me it just seems like the old Ford & Chevy deal. ;)

    So.....what are your thoughts and experiences??:)

    I really like Canon. I'm no pro, but the lenses to me are much nicer and the feel is great.
    I'm sure I'd do fine with Nikon as well. I held a Nikon D70 before and it feels way more solid and thick than my Canon...and I like the shutter sound better...lol.(I know, stupid)..but seriously, they're not that much different other than names for features and how you access them...

    OT just for a sec.......
    Sideburns, I have made thousands off my 300D. To me it's the Indian....not the Arrow.;)

    You got a 350D......I couldn't afford one when they came out. The D1X guys are now very impressed with my 30D...hehe!

    i shoot nikon for two main reasons:

    CLS and the control layout just makes more sense to me.

    Nikon: 1st slr was a FM2n, then F4s, then D70, and now a couple of D200's. The lens collection started early and they all work with every Nikon i own. The controls are similar enough across them that the learning curve with a new body is fairly short.

    I shaped comparative models up and....the Canon offering was clearly....for girls.

    I could wear fishnets, blusher and 10 inch heels no problemo, but I cant hold a Canon dslr....:confused:

    I agree about the Ford & Chevy comparison. (Although anybody that's ever done bush work knows that a Ford will be towing out a stuck Chevy every time!:D Boy howdy could I tell some stories!)

    But for me it's got to be Canon. I watched James Natchwey use one in War Photographer and that same week I bought my first Canon. A good ol' 35mm Rebel XT. And then after that I bought the Elan 7NE. And now I'm just waiting on my 40D (get's here Saturday). And so far no regrets whatsoever.

    My girlfriend is a Nikon girl though, and I have to admit, they're nice cameras too.
