    another point of interest - i bought a Canon p&s (A4000 IS) before my first Nikon and the Canon pretty much sucked. the images always came out with a slight haze/cloudiness to them. i was able to find a process to get rid of the haze on the internet (using GIMP) but i shouldn't have had to do that.

    I've come across people who've tried Canon and say Nikon is better, and vice versa. I had a Canon user a couple of months ago telling me all about how he'd bought into Nikon and had the Nikon 500mm f4 (which is why he started talking to me as it was what i was using at the time) but went back to Canon as the colours were better and his Canon 500mm f4 was a better lens. Ugh, whatever. I just laughed at him. But then i've come across those who use both and some say that Nikon lenses are better. Tbh, i dont think theres anything in it, all about personal preference

    Canon has deeper marketing pockets and a much larger presence in markets outside of photography that the brand is more prevalent which makes for more sales imo. In the photography world I see a more Canon at professional sporting events. Does that mean they're better - certainly not.

    A really good friend of mine is a cameraman for a local TV station and a phenomenal photog and he shoots Canon - and we jab at each other about our preferred brand all the time. But he loves my work and I love his work, there's respect there, because at the end of the day we both produce images we are happy with.

    At the end of the day, a camera is a tool. In conjunction with other tools, we, as artists/craftsmen, build images with those tools that work best for us and our customers.

    I still have a Canon S90 that I use when I want something better than my iPhone and don't want to lug a DSLR around. Had it for about 8 years. Great little P&S. Agree that the kit is a tool, Nikon, Canon, whatever......

    If you own a Nikon then ask yourself. Is there anything I could do better with a Canon than what I can do now with a Nikon?

    I understand Canon users are waiting for something that will match the D500

    Here in Central NY, I've noticed that Canon users are usually of the liberal bend and Nikon usually of the conservative slant. Just like Apple and IBM. Seems like it anyways. Paul

    Re: is Canon better/more popular than Nikon?

    Haven't read the full post but somewhere on here in early 2016 I posted a thread about how my brother, a Canon Pro rep, offered to give me all his personal Canon gear on "permanent loan" as an incentive to get me to switch. This included two 1D's and a 7D plus the full suite of pro lenses he used as a newspaper photographer, figuring I could buy what I wanted as I chose to and sold off my stuff. The offer came just as I'd told myself that I was completely settled on my Nikon gear, happy as a pig with the new D500 announcement. I had two backpacks of his gear in my house for about a month and I'll tell you this - they're both great, and for a serious amateur/semi-pro like me one was no better than the other. They're just different, and I had no desire to spend time relearning menus, buttons, focus & zoom ring positions and directions, etc., so they all went back with a thanks but no thanks.

    Where Canon wins, and should, is in their professional services. Before he worked for them my brother shot Canon at the Star Ledger. Why Canon? Because when the Ledger used Nikon and something went wrong all they got were excuses and no answers. This is something I've heard independently from a number of pro shooters, most recently last month when I ran into a news photographer at a winery in the Finger Lakes. Nikon dropped the ball there when it counted and they opened the door to the drubbing they're getting in the pro market. And when folks like us look at pros shooting at events and see a sea of white glass it can't help but make you wonder why and start leaning in that direction. Canon is committed to crushing Nikon and that's a problem for those of us using it, but until they give up the ghost (I don't think they will) I'll keep shooting them. It's hard to fight from behind, and in the internet age every mishap and misstep is amplified and exaggerated immediately, so Nikon can't afford any.
