    i have an olympus and i have some likes and dislikes.... what do you think is the reason why all of my friends use canon ( a few use nikon) and probably a huge majority of this forum users use nikon or canon, and the world probably lol.

    Give it a rest.
    It's getting old really fast.
    Getting a Canon isn't gonna help you make better pictures, until you know how to make better pictures.

    Two of my friends use Olympus, and they take great photographs. :er:

    And I have a couple of pro friends that make killer images with Olympus gear and make truck loads of money doing it.

    But Nikon and Canon have 85% of the dSLR camera market, mostly because of name recognition and more advertising.

    At this point in the game, on a worldwide basis, Nikon out sells Canon by a slight margin.

    Marketing, and the fact that "everyone else is doing it." With so many nikon/canon people out there, it's just that much easier in finding used stuff too.

    How many threads are you going to make about it? We all know you have olympus gear, and are struggling to use it. Either change to canon, or don't. Everything you could possibly need to know to persuade you has already been discussed.

    I agree with all above.

    But learn to use what you have, It will do you good. Canon or Nikon wont help.

    Just go ahead and switch to canon. Then you can make threads about wanting to switch to nikon.
