I went for a t2i (same sensor and processor as the 7d) Much better low light performance and much deeper menu options.


Thank you. bw!

What do you mean by the comment about the menu options?

I tried both cameras when I bought my 7D. There were three reasons I did not buy the Nikon.

1) It felt weird in my hands, I did not like where the controls were.
2) The pictures straight out of the camera looks cold and flat to me.
3) Nikon did not have an equivalent lens to Canons 100-400 at the time which was going to be a necessity for me.

Nikon has corrected number three and has introducted a new 400mm Zoom that is suppose to be much better. However too late for me.

I've now used my 7D for 1.5 years and have been very happy with the results.

I'm assuming you are referring to me since I am the OP...

I merely opened up a discussion on this topic, that is the main reason behind forums; to discuss! I never said that I was leaving Canon and getting another brand (e.g, Nikon). I only opened up a conversation as to what the new Nikon camera is all about. What better place to ask than a forum with real life experienced individuals? And a place with many talented and amazing amateur, as well as professional photographers. This is the most professional forum that I have read personally. In fact, your post may be one of the few unprofessional I've seen in some time.

I think it is very sensible to ask forum members, just before you leap.
Another forum member may have had some good insight into why not to jump or in fact why you should jump.
Only the truly ignorant don't research and just jump blindly.
Generally I found people who dislike a debate or discussion are well to put it nicely 'not exactly MENSA material'.

Furthermore even if you left, and posted the reasons; there is a chance you might do all of use a great deal of good.
I would be flabbergasted if Canon were not monitoring this site. As they would get invaluable insight into their customers buying patterns.

Likewise if I saw 50,000 leaving to join Nikon every month, you bet I would check it out and see if it was good for me as well. .

Yesterday I went into a local landscapers gallery. I got chatting to the resident photographer who shot Nikon gear after I saw a D700 in the corner. He divulged that he also had a D800 and a D90. He revealed to me that most of the shots in his gallery were taken with the D90. Quality lens are the way forward and you are probably doing the right thing by getting a 400/5.6
He also said the D700 was terrible in damp { not wet } conditions and had been back to Nikon several times.

I messed up my own post. Weird.

What I meant to say was that I went from the T2i (same sensor as the 7D) to the Nikon D7000 and am VERY pleased with the difference in many areas: the shutter is extremely quiet on the D7000, there is much less noise at higher ISOs, the sensor in the D7000/7100 is 10% larger than the 7D sensor, and when ther is noise in photos it looks like film grain rather than electronic noise.

I consider the Nikon D7000 superior to the Canon 7D in every way but one: lenses. What I mean isn't so much the quality of glass (both make outstanding high-end lenses), but the availability of Canon lenses for rental, resale, and new stock is much better.

In other words, because Canon makes a ton more cameras than Nikon, they make more lenses. Check Craigslist or most online outlets and you'll find a much large volume of new and used lenses to buy or rent from Canon.


Thank you. bw!
