'course, whey you already have a bunch of Canon lens, you tend to stick with what you got. Just like owning a bunch of PC software.

Mitch,

I thought about Nikon, but I've been satisfied with Canon's performance and since I've purchased the 24-105L, I am kind of stuck now.

Besides, I don't want to be known as a "Nikonian".

The great thing about L lenses is that they hold there value very well. Bodies will come and go, but you could have the lenses the rest of your life.

Its funny how all these people who jumped ship to Nikon are now starting to return to Canon also.

One will take the lead and another will take it back, just the way it goes.

I have been shooting with Canon DSLR's since 2006 and have only missed a few shots due to mis-focus. And some of those times it was user error.

So you bought one, eh? That was pretty quick!

And never, EVER consider yourself "stuck" with Canon.

They are more expensive, but not 3-4 times more expensive.

There are cost differences, but "3-4 times" is absurd rhetoric.

Very true on the absurdness of his post. As you all know I shoot with Nikon and many of my friends shoot Canon. I will say this, I had a chance to play with a 7D and I was quite impressed with the AF performance! It is the best that I have seen from a Canon body, which is why I made that earlier comment about "how AF should work". I enjoy reading magazines and books that leave out the tech info on their pictures I.E.; Canon 5D MkII 100 ISO, 24-105L, 1/60 f/4 type business. Who cares?! Seriously, just enjoy the good work of your fellow photographers and not be dwelling on their gear. In the end, if it didn't get the job done, they would not be in business. But, if Canon didn't have Nikon and vice-versa, they could charge whatever they wanted for their products and we would still pay.....

Cool

After a lifetime of going goo-goo over cameras (thus expending too much energy that I should have focused elsewhere) I have found contentment in regarding them as the least part important part of the process.

Dan you should explore The Dalles next. I think Scaryhill has been whored out.
I shoot the same shots over and over. Once you've seen one, you've seen them all!

Just sayin'...you've got some good images, and it would nice to read some info about the photo and not what you shot it with (which is easily accessible info). Or maybe I'm just too anal about captions.

So what do you want know? I mainly shoot mainline BNSF trains at Maryhill, WA. Either they come or they don't. Not much to say about it that I can think of. Ask Welch, us Nikon guys are dumb, we just let the camera do the talking since we aren't too smart.

That's the most accurate thing you've stated in this thread.
