    LOL, that's sick.

    This is no battle, it'd be a bloodbath, and the Samurais shall be victourios!

    While I do prefer to remain above the fray, I must say Canon is the only real choice.

    Sorry chaps but this competition is a non-starter. A couple of weeks ago a program on UK TV, I think it was the gadget show, asked a reputable professional photographer to compare a Nikon 6Mpixel, Fuji 3MPixel and Kodak 3MPixel camera from the photographs taken; same photo in each case.

    To say that he had a tough time comparing the Kodak cheapo <100 v the Nikon expensive 500+ to choose which camera it was is putting in mildly; Well you have to wonder if this is a fair fight. By the way he spotted the Fuji straight off and declared it the worst.

    I guess CANON weren't asked because it would have made it unfair to all other camera makes:D :) :p ;)

    In a test like that The Nikon can not be taken at face value, seeing as how Nikon gets all their sensors from Sony and, cough cough, Kodak.

    I think I will continue using cameras that are made by the same people that make the sensors.

    <font size=2>Aye the bat-tle lines have been drawn! Let the fanfare cease! Let us come now to business.

    An idea was given to me last night as I dreampt of Nikkors and sweet meats. Shall we make of this battle the theme of...

    <font size=6>$$Money?$$<font size=2>

    What say ye, oh tribes of the Viewfinder?

    What other ideas strike thee?

    Ugh don't remind me....had to use them for a while until I got totally new ones- they're a remnant from my youth but my cats would sleep on my bed and i've recently been diagnosed with asthma, and so cats on the bed is a big no-no.

    Maybe I should do another...I have one less camera but more lenses and extras....
    And my new sheets/comforter happen to be in Nikon colors...
