Canon and Nikon have been doing this song and dance for years, it's nothing new. It's called competition!

Yeah, but it was a lot more fun in the 10D-40D days when canon was eating Nikon's lunch! :lol:

What I think is funny is that it seems like Nikon was really trying hard to create a 50D killer and Canon was obviously trying really hard to create a D90 killer. So now they switched places and ended up with the same problem in that the bodies aren't direct competitors.

Oh I wasn't saying he shouldn't be here, just that I was curious his reasons for still posting/reading here. I just feel like it'd be akin to selling your Dell, Zune, and Windows Phone 7 all for the Apple Equivalents but still posting on a Microsoft forum for the aforementioned reasons. Seems odd is all.

It's not odd at all really, I and others are still part of many forums where we may no longer own the object it was created for. See it becomes less about the cameras here and more about the community.

No offense, but you just got here, and you're in no position to question anyone else. Especially a senior and respected member like Nick.

I just noticed the control layout looks awful. People were whining about moving the joystick on the Canon, but look at this mess:

Yeah, my thought exactly.

Even the Rebels have a much more intuitive layout, IMO.

Seems like the controls are about the same from the d90. Doesn't mean they don't suck just saying they aren't that different which makes sense for Nikon users who are used to it. I much prefer Canon's layout.

The designer said "I'm not sure what this button does, so I've labeled it '?' "

I think they said, "I don't know where to fit these important exposure and focus controls so I will put them all on the left side so you can't change settings without taking your left hand off the lens."

That seems awful. I am sure I could get used to it, but it just doesn't make sense next to Canon. Even the Rebels have all the control for exposure and focus changeable by just the right hand. You can change anything while your eye is in the VF and your left hand is working and holding the lens.

No, since there is a mic on the back, you simply hit that button, state your question verbally, and the camera will do a video tutorial displaying the answer to your question. :)

Pretty sure Nikons don't use the Canon type rear wheel. They have a thumb wheel on the top right.

They really need to invent a sarcasm font. But hey, at least Nikon still doesn't have the direct print button.

Not to sound rude, but why are you then on a completely Canon forum?

As others have eluded to, this is a photography forum first and foremost. Second, this thread wasn't posted in the Canon specific gear section, but in the general photography section. Thirdly, again, as others have eluded to, I've been a Canon shooter for years before I switched 5 months ago so I would think I know what I am talking about when comparing the 2 systems. But I might be wrong...:lol:

Well, I'm glad I have your permission to be here. :lol:
Seems odd to be talking about photography related topic in a "General" photography section? Hmm...someone's sounding odd and it sure ain't me. ;):lol:
