    No. But. you don't get VW owners claiming they are
    faster/sharper/better built than Merc, though, do you?

    So why do Canon shooters do that?

    There are a few idiots who claim Nikons are vastly superior to Canons,
    aren't you one of them? If you find what you have to be good, just use it
    and share your TECHNIQUES, not YOUR BIAS. Saying Canon (or others) is crap
    is just childish ranting. There isn't a single car in the world that has
    not been in a garage to fix something, even Rolls need repairs, when you get
    on a plane, do you check it's service record? They ALL get service, they
    ALL get parts recalls, there are more important things in life than pissing
    on your neighbor.

    I have quit reading any posts by Rita and RichA because it's ALWAYS the same
    song, get a life before you become like them.

    One of my work trucks is a 2001 and hasn't had any services than oil
    changes, lube job, and a set of tires. There's a difference between routine
    maintenance and "repairs" for vehicles. None of my Nikons needed any
    repairs so they are good. Now stop being an idiot and just admit that Canon
    lenses really do suck.

    More certified companies like J.D.Powers conclude that Nikon DSLR owners are
    more satisfied than Canon DSLR owners.
    C|NET comments:

    And that was before the D3 and D300 were on the market.
    Canon does score better with P&S camera's, so the conclusion:
    Canon should stick to what they do best: P&S and leave the DSLR's to Nikon.
    Nikon should stop wasting time and money on P&S and leave that to Canon.
    I do share my pictures and techniques, but somehow always end up with a big
    discussion from people that "know" everything but show nothing.~
    Last time was with MX pictures how they looked much better than without.
    Cutting noise by more than just a litle even at 200 ISO. But that wasn't
    sharper, it wasn't higher resolution, etc. I don't care how you wan to call
    is: I just see a better picture.

    You also joined a discussion with a guy who's Canon lens was less sharp than
    a year before.
    Personally I had a Canon fax/printer/scanner that just died after less than
    2 years and little use. They claimed the motherboard died. How the heck does
    that happen? No warranty and the cost for repair was higher than a new one.
    Needless to say I bought a new HP instead with more extra's and at half the
    But I also have a Canon powershot and a Canon camcorder with which both I'm
    quite happy.
    So to state I'm saying Canon is crap, that's just childish behaviour. ;-)
    Although I have to admit that Rich is a little over doing it, Rita is quite
    a knowledgeable lady, who more then others offers good advice. When she
    speaks of Canon and Nikon, it's from her experience using both.

    As far as the childish ranting goes; you do quite a lot of that yourself.

    After all: I did start this topic, so I'm not blindly saying Nikon is
    perfect. But after all the things I read about both companies, holding
    several Canon DLSR's in my hands and having owned several Nikons, I just
    rather invest my money in Nikon. Not just for one, but many reasons.
    Ergonomically I feel Nikon has more logical and easier controls and just
    feels better in my hands. For example the dials are at your thumb and at
    your index finger, where as Canon (5D and 40D) has it somewhere on top.
    And, sorry, the kitlenses of Nikon run circles around the ones from Canon.
    You're in serious denial if you don't agree.

    : > So I'll keep you up to date.
    : Save it, not interested...

    Then if I may make a suggestion, why don't you just stop reading this thread.

    Why do you think taxi drivers in most countries in Europe drive Mercedes?
    They get more than 600,000 miles on it with little trouble. I don't see any
    VW or Toyota do that.

    Just to stay on topic:
    I rearranged the rim by pushing it inside and added a UV filter. Looks like
    better than new ;-)

    Simple, big roomy car with a diesel engine. In Japan most taxis are Toyotas
    and Nissans (again diesels). In north america, there are very very few
    Mercedes taxis, does that mean Mercedes are only good in europe? And you
    wouldn't beleive how many VW Beetles are used as taxis in Mexico.

    No, they can't affort them in America, because they're three times the
    price. Same Japan.
    Even here in Portugal by far the most popular taxi is Mercedes.
    I'll show you a picture some day soon.
    Not true: I've been in Mexico many times and never seen a VW taxi.

    But at least we agree:
    VW is comparable with Canon
    Mercedes with Nikon.

    You guys crack me up. SO eager to draw a line between yourselves and others.
    So two-dimensional.

    White, black. Day, night. Canon, Nikon. Democrat, Republican. USA, rest of

    Grasp anything that lets you think you're somehow better.

    Like a binkie.

  11. I think a lot of fleet service vehicles get a better option and quality
    package to make them more durable and reliable. The problem with VW and
    Toyota is they are so dirt cheap in them third world countries they were
    designed for that it is more prudent to scrap it after 100K miles.
    I'm glad you got it fixed and now have a filter on it.

    I have been to Portugal and to Japan and to Mexico and if you are talking
    about who has the better standard of living, I would venture a wild guess
    and say it's Japan, can they afford a Mercedes more than a Portugese, again
    a wild guess would yield a positive answer, but that is just me and god know
    how wrong I can be.

    Over and out...
