Didn't you have a Nikon in the family or was that someone else?
Correct, Mom got a good deal on a Nikon D3100 18-55/55-300/35
so i wouldnt have to pay for the 35mm f/1.8 if i grabbed a D7000...shed probubly give it to me as she really doesnt like it too much
I'm also an ex-Nikon shooter, shot an N70, N75 and D70 (My camera bodies are all 3s or 7s somehow! 7D, 30D, EOS-3..) and a variety of really cheapo lenses....
Ergonomics-wise, Im equally at home after a few minutes to re-acclimate to all the Nikon stuff, I prefer one or two things on either, Lens selection wise Im well suited either way I suppose, the big hurt with Canon has been my **** over "normal" lenses, on Nikon the lack of a 70-200 f/4 is a bit..concerning to me but I will just manage with a f/2.8 if i have to
