    Hey Brian...afraid it's true.

    Sold my second D100 today. Will evaluate the 10D and if it works reliably enough, the other Nikon stuff is going as well. It will all be for sale most likely, so if you're interested in some well-kept Nikon gear and lenses, drop me an email...

    Cool Hey......way to go!

    I won't say any more, lest I start a war. However, we all know that great feeling of getting new gear, regardless of what it is!

    Congratulations.....and don't forget to post those pics.

    Liz ;)

    Hey Seb, i know you're worried about the back focusing issue. I just wanted to let you know that My 10D does not have the issue. I've had some focusing problems but was able to determine that the wrong settings were being used at the time, the problems were my fault. That's not to say that some bad bodies aren't out there, the people I know having them know what they are doing but most of the afflicted seemed to buy their bodies well before me including PJ. Hopefully it's something that Canon worked out of their system. I don't hear about backfocusing problems with the digirebel and it's supposed to have the same chip. I think there's a real good chance you won't have any issue with it. Good luck and welcome to the club!

    Alan,

    I think you're right...at least I hope. It seems the focus issues were early on, I am keeping my fingers crossed. That's part of the reason why I'm buying locally, I want to be able to take it back if I need to.

    Has the whole world gone mad? First Paul, now Seb! Is there no end to the insanity?!

    See, this is what happens when you go over to the Dark Side (digital)! It messes up your mind.

    "Once you start down the dark side, consume you it will." Yoda was VERY WISE!

    I guess at this rate I will be the Last Nikon Samuarai. And the last film shooter. :-(

    Sigh...

    Congrats on your new gear buddy! I hope it is everything you want. :-)

    Interesting...

    Hmm... a switch to Canon digital from Nikon... I've stood up for my Nikon cameras for quite some time, but I'm beginning to wonder if I should try out Canon. I've used Nikon ever since I started taking pics, and I'm relatively happy with my D100. However, I've also spent many, many hours defending my choice of equipment. What's so great about the new Canon digital camera?

    Yeah, I'm on the waiting list for the new EOS-1DII. No, no, no, I'm sticking with the Nikon stuff I've got! And then there were three...

    I haven't given up on film either - just got some more Tri-X yesterday. Canon does make nice stuff, no doubt about it. I heard Jim Brandenburg is making the switch too. Good luck with the new gear!

    Well, 8.5 frames per second, at 8.2 megapixel, 40 frame buffer, very low noise, very high resolution, very well built.

    Need I go on...?

    THis is what the D2H should have been...

    If you're happy with the Nikon stuff, sure stay with it. THe ergonomics are wonderful, and the pics are great. But there is no choice in it, you only get to pick from the bodies they want to make, Canon makes many bodies to meet many needs, and you get to pick what suits you.

    I think Canon listens to its curtomer base much more so than Nikon.

    Seb,

    I'd have to agree with you... Canon does listen to their clients better than Nikon. Nikon just doesn't have the customer service skills they should have. Oh... and that Canon... I now have camera envy... I think I might need one. *smile*

    Does Canon have an equivilant to the Nikon Professional Program?

    Yes, it's called CPS, and they tend to do more for you than Nikon. Beyond cleaning and service they also tend to have tryouts at events, where you can play with, and sometimes borrow for the event, hardware you may not own.

    ANd like I said before, the amount of time Chuck Westfall spends in forums answerig questions, clarifying functions, talking about the future, he alone is worth his wait in gold to s frustrated Nikon owner, since we really are not told anything, about anything by Nikon.

    I'm not interested in the Nikon/Canon switch. What I really, really want to know is ....

    Where in the world did you find the 50mm EF f/1.8 in stock? Geez that must be the most popular lens ever, I haven't been able to find it anywhere.
