Nikon or Canon and then which camera?

[quote name='mst' timestamp='1282601970' post='2062']

Well, wim already answered the first part of the question <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':angry:' /> Yes, currently Nikon shooter (but not Nikon only), former Canon shooter.



Regarding cameras, I'm afraid I can't give you a useful advice, at least not if you expect me to say "choose camera X". IMO, there's not much to add to jenbenn's post above. You buy into a system and should carefully check every part of the system if it suits your needs, not just the camera.



Both Canon and Nikon now offer truly excellent cameras. The D300 made me switch to Nikon, the 7D is the camera I'd probably own now if I was still shooting Canon.



The D700 is a slightly different beast, though. It's a really excellent camera (owned one before I got the D3x), but "feels" a little old by now. Of course that doesn't make it worse than two years ago, when it was introduced, but it's likely approaching the end of its product life and a new model is thus not too far away. However, according to the rumor mill that update does not seem to happen at photokina. It's just a rumor, though, and we can't be sure until the expo doors open on September 21st.

Well, it does help to have your opinion. There is no doubt that I would buy the D3x if I could justify spending that much money. I also understand that most other cameras would feel old after the D3X <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' /> The D700 is my limitSmile, but I will probably go with the 7D or the D300S. Is there any particular reason in your opinion why I should take one or the other? I can't help feeling that Canon is more marketing driven and Nikon more engineering driven. That being said, there is no doubt that both are excellent and that one just has to make a well reasoned decision. (Like jenbenn says above) <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' /> And I ned to make one fast, because I am going away for 2 weeks on the 8th of August and I want the new camera for that trip. Kind regards vieux loup
