    That's laughable. You haven't been watching much have you?

    When the D1 came out where was Canon? No where. When the D1x/h came out
    where was Canon? They had a 3mpix prosumer digital.... That was it. This is
    just the next stage of the leapfrogging game the 2 companies will do.

    Nikon tends to take their time and brings out products that are *production
    ready*. They don't rush stuff to the marketplace like Canon.

    Well, as a matter of fact Canon had the D2000, which incidently was the
    staple body used by all Fairfax News photographers and the primary
    digital body used by News Ltd. These D2000's are just now being turned
    over in exchange for Canon 1D's.

    You didn't read my post very well... I suspect you were too eager to
    get your ill-informed and thoughtless retort out.

    80% of accredited photographers at the Sydney 2000 olympics shot with
    Canon for the technology reasons I outlined (thats a fact!). Research
    and development and innovation are what take Canon into the lead.

    Just getting a camera to market doesn't make for a technology leader.
    Canon were actively selling into the pro market all the while... you
    just didn't know about it.

    Do yourself a favour.. check out the Technology Hall in the Canon
    Camera Museum on www.canon.com (the Japanese site) and learn something
    instead of mouthing off.

    BTW, Nikon make great gear too, always have. In fact. I grew up on it.
    It is, however, a simple fact that they haven't invested in R&D like
    Canon have and the latest digital product reflects it.

    I say it again: Flourite DIGIC ISAPS, the EF mount... if you dont know
    what these acronyms and words mean, then I suggest you find out before
    arguing the point and simply making yourself look foolish!
