Canon or Nikon

A friend of mine wrote me an email today asking:

Do you have any general comments of why you chose Canon over Nikon?

Here's my reply:


I bought my first 35mm SLR in 1984, it was a Canon and I've just stuck with them ever since.

I love Canon and I'll never switch ... but if all my gear got stolen tomorrow and someone said "I'll replace it all with Nikon gear for free" I would not argue for a second ... both companies make great products.

It's kind of like comparing the top of the line BMW with the top of the line Mercedes ... both are great, it's a matter of personal taste. BTW, give me a 7 series BMW any day over a Benz :)
