Nikon vs Canon
I read an amazing blog post at Photo Business News about the new Nikon D3 vs Canon 1ds Mark III. I've been a loyal Canon user since I started taking pictures 10 years ago. I regularly upgrade my equipment and until now Canon has been the best option for top of the line gear - especially in low light. Now Nikon is offering a body that is better in low light than anything Canon has to offer. I had never thought about leaving Canon until all of the recent problems with my Mark 1d Mark III. My camera body has been back to the factory for service 4 times in 5 months. For a product that costs $5k that is UNACCEPTABLE. Now I'm starting to entertain the idea of becoming a Nikon girl. I'm not happy with the low light primes Nikon offers, but the reviews of the new D3 have been VERY positive. One of my local photo friends (who shall remain unnamed) is making the switch to Nikon. It's very tempting.
