After shooting Nikon since 1977, even owning a camera shop for years as a Nikon dealer, I just placed an order for a new Canon. The straw that broke the back? The AF-S system. I purchased a camera that requires the AF-S lens system in 2006. I figured Nikon would just build lens that would do both, and I would be set. NO luck there! Also, I have tried for years to get this camera to "behave" whenever there is any bright red in the frame, all to no avail. I did the research and decided to toss caution to the wind and ordered a Canon SL1 with the 2 kit lens. While I am excited about the rig, I DID have to endure MyLady's smile as I told her I ordered it. (She has shot Canon film and digital since 1995) In true benevolent kindness, as is her signature, she did offer to share lens with me since she has been gathering glass for 20 years, and of course it ALL fits! LOL.
I look forward to finding my way around here, and getting back into photography big time. Health has put a halt to several hobbies that were stealing photo time, so 2015 should be a very good year!
Life is seen in light, felt in love, and valued in service.
