Not sure which Canons you have tried, but mine is built like a freaking brick. With you on the layout though. If only the Nikons I use made as nice a frame as the Canon I own.

Started with a nameless 35mm at age 9 that had a light leak from day 1, moved on to some Minolta SLRs in later years, then a Maxxum of some sort. In college I got a Nikon F100, which served me well, then a D2h which is really nice camera that takes crappy pictures- at least crappy quality images. Now I have a Canon EOS 1d MkIIn, which is the greatest piece of technology I have ever had the pleasure of using. Really a magnificent camera.

Along the way I used a D1 with regularity, and later (and currently, for that matter) a D1h, which was a great camera in its day, but is getting tired.
