So i spent a long lunch hour fiddling with the 5dmkii. I must say that i convinced myself that i can stick it through with the focus system but after spending some time with it, its utterly painful in comparison to the d300s. My nikon focuses instantly without hesistation and i found myself waiting for the 5d to focus.

As such, i still want to make the switch to canon, but now considering going with the 7D for the time being, so that i can begin investing in the lenses and eventually upgrade to full frame when they release one that meets my needs/wants.

Assuming i can sell my d300s, looks like i will be making almost an even swap, with little out of pocket if any.

Would you say this would be a good switch, being that i will be moving to something similar to what i have now but with canon color rendition

Surely you can get the "Canon color rendition" through post processing, without having to swap systems.

you'll have better selection of lenses with Canon which may be important for you to consider.

thats my thought alpha. I am attracted to the multiple variations of the same focal range on canon at various price points. This gives me many options versus nikon which seems to be limited, the more i do research.

Some do prefer not to spend much time post processing. ;)

why not? This way you can see if you like canons after shooting one a while BEFORE spending more money on a new (FF) setup... Seems smart since it's a lateral move.

no, you can't. They're slightly different but at times it can be very weird. And this:

Thanks for you input jacobsen. I think this might be the best approach. Now just need to sell the nikon.

Good stuff O. Good to know we can tape clips on the fly with just an iphone 4. Maybe I should skip canon and nikon altogether :lol:

It seems you might be able to do so, with a bit of effort and cost.

Right. The operative words in your post being effort and cost, which both Ben and the other poster said they'd rather save. Why not just start out with something that looks the way you want it?

Nobody's saying it can't be done, just that they'd rather not if it's easier another way!
