I have two cameras, Canon S3 IS which is good for close photos and another Canon, EOS 400D with lens 100-400mm that i use for spotting planes, and i think better than Nikon D70, i had before, with grain photos problem most of photos. A lot of work with photoshop with Nikon D70!

There are more Canon's there because Canon made the lenses that those photographers want. That's quickly changing however with the new D3 and new prime supertele lenses that are coming out.

I don't know what you just typed, but I think we agree that Canon rocks! Either that or there's some code there that I don't understand.

Truth is, this is just another Canon V. Nikon debate and no one really wins those.

Except, of course, those of us with Canon gear!!!

Sounds like a concession speech to me!

Just speaking the truth! If you're a paid professional who is spending 10s of thousands of dollars on equipment, Canon is probably the better choice mostly because they had the first FF camera. We'll see what happens with the D3 which is of course FF (FX) and we'll see how the new supertele lenses do. I'm sure they'll do just fine considering Nikon's goal in making all this new equipment is to win back some of the pros.

For the rest of us normal-folk who spend <$10,000 on our equipment, it all comes down to what you prefer. The difference between the two brands is so small that personal comfort is a much bigger key to puzzle.

With that in mind, I stand by my original statement: Canon sucks!

Mike B.,

Canon worked perfect for me with EOS 400D and 100-400mm lens, very good for subjects so far, no noise happened at all.

Hmmmm, changing some words we get:

There are more GE's because GE made the locomotives that the railroads want.
So does that mean that GE is better than EMD? Not necessarily...

Well, there are only a handful of class 1s, and to some extent they are fairly similar in operations, so to an important extent the main part of the new engine market is finding GE better than EMD, yes.

Whereas photographers are quite the disparate bunch, some of whose needs are filled better by Nikon and some by Canon, and there is no best. One could make a strong argument, however, that until quite recently Canon was by far the best for sports-oriented telephoto photography. But in general, no best.

Ooook, that was kind of out of left field...

Like anything else that's specializes in a certain field, it all depends on application.

Railroads don't always buy what engines would be the best. There are countless factors involved in a railroad buying/leasing engines and getting the best engine possible isn't at the top of the list.

Just so you know, I much, much, prefer EMDs. It saddens me what's being done to the SD60Ms. I will not shoot a renumbered SD60M.
