    Hi guys,

    I am currently on a Nikon Platform but thinking on Jumping to Canon... Although Nikons have better dynamic range at the moment (waiting on Canons response to the D810 D750 and D610) Anyone here did the switch?

    I run a D600 but was told recently by the director of a film / photography company they're shifting from Canon 5D series to Sony A7R II full frame mirrorless and that a lot in the industry are also making the move.

    Canon F1, A2E with 28mm and 100MM macro (extension tube)
    Canon 7D, 5Dmk III with 24-105mm f3.5, 70-200mm f2.8 mk II, 180mm macro and 400mm f5.6
    I think Canon rules in this house

    The pictures I post here in the WRUW and WDUBT threads are made with a Nikon D90 and 40 Micro Nikkor.

    My other pictures are made with a D7000 and some Nikkor lens.

    I'm way too married to the system to even consider a switch even if I felt there was a clear advantage that I don't yet see.

    I've got 4 different speedlights that I can trigger together as a controllable system, and a bunch of prime lenses, a couple of nice zooms and a 60mm and 105mm Micros in addition to the 40.

    If I were to buy a mirrorless I'd probably by a Fuji.

    Back when I was using film, I had my trusty Nikon F401.

    Since the Digital Age dawned upon us, it's been only Can(n)on. :p

    was between that same question - played with the canon rebel T6i and the nikon 3400 - liked the nikon much more and I'm very happy with the choice.

    I'm a product manager in Canon USA's camera division so it's safe to say that I'm Canon EOS and Rebel user :)

    Canon has better glass. Canon user - Canon 1D Mark IV, III, IIn plus a bunch of L lens. Don't switch. Decide on Nikon or Canon - stay with it, once you invest in glass it gets too hard to switch. You really can't go wrong with either. Both Canon/Nikon make gear that is far more capable than you or I will ever be as photographers.

    I have heard similar things. However, the problem with Sony is that they dont have the right Lens that I would need for my Photography.

    What bodies and lenses you currently have and why do you want to switch? The top pro body from Canon, 1DX MkII, actually has better max DR than the top Nikon equivalence.

    Hopefully not the 40mm Micro Nikkor. It's great for everything other than macro photography due to it's very shallow depth of field (I have one).

    My set up:-
    Nikon D80
    Nikkor 18-135
    Micro-Nikkor 40mm

    Ricoh GR Digital IV (the one I like the most).

    iPhone with a cheap clip-on macro (the one I use the most!)

    I think 99% of the stuff we look at to differentiate the different camera bodies is bunk. I have a 8 MP Canon 1D Mark IIn - came out in 2003? As long as it is sunny and bright it will take as good (if non sometimes better) of a picture as my Canon 1D Mark IV. The only difference for me, (I take high school sports photos) is for night games. As the light dims and the ISO increases there is a diffence between the ID Mark IIn and the Mark III and the Mark IV is better still. Take the time to learn your gear and get the most out of it. I bet my old 1D Mark IIn (Which you can pick up used for < $300) will still still take a better picture than any new non-1D pro-consumer Rebel. Video it does not do but I take out my iPhone 7 for vids. But sometimes that old grainy picture can work. One of my best pictures is my daughter running at night - shot with an old Canon 20D at ISO 3200.
