As many of you know, I recently acquired a Nikon 17-35mm IF-ED AFS lens on\nEbay. The lens came from U.S. News & World Report photographer Jim Lo\nScalzo:\n[URL]http://www.usnews.com/usnews/photography/portfolios/loscalzo/portfolio_scal.htm[/URL]\nHe had a lot of high-quality Nikkors up on the auction block, so I asked him\nwhy. His response was that Nikon DSLRs "stink", and he's switching to\nCanon, "as even us news is going more digital, i've got to keep up."\n\nSo I asked him to enumerate the reasons Nikon "stinks". After all, other\nthan the 11 megapixel Canon, their top of the line DSLRs are pretty\ncomparable, aren't they? And hasn't Nikon had the PJ edge thus far?\n\nHe wrote me back and asked that I call him to discuss the subject, so I\nthought I'd give you guys a chance to chime in before I do-\-it'll be like\ntalk radio, where some of the questions for the guest speaker comes via\nemail!
