UUhm no troll.

I have never used Nikon. But keep getting suggestions that I should switch over.
So I want to know good reasons not to switch.

They are sueing Sigma

if you need more convincing than that remember that each time a Nikon shutter fires - God kills a kitten


Tools of the trade: Canon 400D, Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2, Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS, Canon MPE 65mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70mm f2.4, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6, Raynox DCR 250, loads of teleconverters and a flashy thingy too

I can't say your heavily invested in canon gear by your signature, but I don't believe switching between manufacturers is going to change things all that much for you. How about a little background on why you want to switch?

I just switched from nikon to Canon. I will never go back. Every Nikon I ever had (and Ive had a few) hasn't been up to par. Always at Nikon getting something done to it. Image quality wasn't as great as I would want (Im talking colors, etc). The Canon just seems to fit me better. I love the rich, creamy look that canon has to it. I could put a Nikon image and a Canon image of the same thing, taken with the same lens (brand specific) and could tell you which was Canon. The canon always looked better.

Keep your canon.

Sam. No real reason.
I'm fixing to look for an upgrade.
Several friends and family asked me why not just switch to Nikon.
And I figured I'd look into it. And try to come up with reasons to switch and reasons not to switch.

I did have several more lenses and three flashes.
Sold everything but what you read plus I kept the 430ex flash for now....

Keep your canon.

I've actually heard this from a good number of people.
However those switching from Canon to Nikon...say it's bc of canon's color, weight, prices, and the fact that their canon keeps tearing up, etc.

I, personally, have never had any trouble with any of my canon gear.

I say switch. Just because your friends and family are questioning why you aren't.

You aren't heavily invested in Canon... so switching won't be that big of a financial hit. Although if you do decide to switch back, taking another hit that way... it'll slowly add up. You won't know whether or not you'll like it until you try it, right? :lol:

I would love to be able to afford to hold on my XTi and also buy a comparable Nikon camera, and therefore I could compare the two side by side for myself.....

-Switching brands won't make you a better photographer
-You already own decent Canon gear
-You already know how to use Canon gear.


That said, Nikon makes great stuff. So do all the other major brands. There is no real overwhelming reason to use one brand over another.

As for my family here in the mainland suggesting that I switch...
I believe it's bc my aunt in Hawaii recently got a Nikon D60 (about a year ago), and every one else here is going gaga over the photos...

Which I wont lie. They are beautiful. And the woman knows nothing about her camera really. But consider that she lives in Oahu, Hawaii so she has plenty of beautiful things and landscapes to shoot! LOL
