Nikon or Canon ?
im going for Canon..................but thats just because i never had a Nikon. But im lovin it (sounds like a McDonalds commercial..................darn, now im hungry)
Canon has better autofocus and generally better camera bodies, but nikon has a slight edge on lenses and their flash systems are better. so it really depends on more than just the body.
Really? I havn't been to pleased with the AF on the 20D.
It's impossible to answer that question without knowing which specific models you have in mind. I would pick the Nikon D70 over the Canon digital Rebel in a heart beat but would take the 10D or 20D over the D70. In order to give you good advice, we'd have to know which level of DSLR you're looking to buy.
Eric - Canon AF systems are a bit quirky. Once you figure out how they tick, they are really quite good.
also, the best autofocusing canons that i know of are their high end DSLRs (most notbly the 1dmkII if i remember correctly).
I agree with Photogoddess completely, without knowing what level you're looking at and what you're shooting I can't blindly assume which brand will work best for you. We shoot with both Canon and Nikon cameras and like them both for different reasons.
We're both Canon girls that hooked up with Nikon boys and now we swing both ways. Now I know why we're soul sisters.
So Deviant26, exactly what models are you considering?
i am a Canon fan personally, i have never used a Nikon really, but i love how Canons are layed out as far as their menus and over all use
but like i said i am a Canon fan, if they started to make cereal i would so put back the box of Tony the Tiger for the Canon 'Os
I have to be honest... I've never shot with nikon... I'm perfectly happy with my canon system and see no need to switch.
It really does depend on the model of camera that Deviant is considering. Having shot with both Canon and Nikon gear on a regular basis, I can see pros and cons to both.... depending on the model. Sound like broken record yet?
Well Im looking to spend around a $1000. I take a lot of nature and love macro photo. Hope that helps and thx for the votes so far, I woudl have thought the opposite.
Auto Focus is good, but if I can focus a better picture manually, I'll do that.
