As some here may know I'm planning to buy a new camera body next year. Sadly probably later in the year. I have my mind made up that if I had the cash today, I'd be buying a Canon 7D Mark II. However luckily I have time on my side to decide which camera to get, so I figure why not look at all options. My second choice would be a 70D.
Currently I have a canon T3. The canon glass I have is an old tamron 70-300, not a good lens and will be replacing it regardless. Also I have the 100 mm 2.8 USM macro lens. I could easily and quickly sell. If I did decide to go with Nikon. And of course the kit lens. So all in all, no reason not to consider alternative bodies.
I like to shoot nature (wildlife, landscape, etc...), action, and macro. I know 1 thing I want for sure is a crop sensor. For the added reach. Irrelevant in macro I know. Also burst mode of at least 6 fps, for the action stuff or BIF. Budget isn't a major issue, since I have to save regardless. I'm thinking no more than 1500 if possible. One thing I've noticed about the Nikon is they all have over 20 megapixels. I know that's not the most important thing to determining IQ but it doesn't hurt to have a higher number? Does Nikon generally have a higher IQ than canon? I'm starting to wonder. Not trying to start a canon vs nikon fight. Just a curiosity.
Like I say time is on my side and I have several months to make a decision. Might as well start researching now!
