Hey guys, I'm just trying to get some feedback on whether to switch from Canon to Nikon. I've been looking to upgrade for a while. My current equipment includes: Canon T3i, 18-55mm kit lens, 55-250mm telephoto, 50mm f/1.8. My father has a friend who is able to get Nikon products for around 50% off retail price (head office employee). So I was thinking it would better to switch to Nikon in the long run (gathering equipment, lenses, etc.) even though I've heard Canon is outclassing Nikon in certain aspects and I already have some of the lower priced Canon products. I'm looking to get a camera body and 2-3 lens if I switch to Nikon gearing toward a more intermediate level if I do switch. I know some die-hard fans for both so I would like some opinions on this. I am currently a student so I don't have that much disposable income.
