Count me in!




I got a really old xt, i think 350D. I have the canon 100 mm 2.8 macro, 50mm 1.8, and the kit lens that I never use.

New Canon Rebel 4Ti

If one of these ended up in my Christmas stocking, I wouldn't be one bit sad.

I agree, specially with the new lenses included.

Thoughts on the Canon D5 Mark II? Asking because I was offered a trade for my Nikon D300. I know the value of the cameras are pretty far off with the Canon being at least twice as much right now on the used market.

5DmkII is a badass camera, period. I'd trade in any Nikon for it ANYDAY . Sorry my inner fanboy just had to post that lol.

Honestly, it's what you really want man. I'm sure both are great cameras and it's all about personal preference and what you're comfortable with. Obviously the Canon wins over features/price so it's your call. I'm a Canon shooter and I like the controls and menus much better on Canons. That's ultimately why I shoot Canon.

Yeah, the biggest issue, and it's a biggie, is that because of the value difference, if I traded, I'd have a body, no lenses, other guy would get my body and lenses. He got the body in a trade himself and likes Nikon and doesn't have any lenses for the body. Well, I think he has one non ef lens but that's it. I was tempted just due to the value difference and thought about trading and selling but I think I'd still fall short of the value of my kit. Maybe if I can keep one lens to sell or trade to get a decent zoom lens for the Canon. I don't know...decisions...what I was really wanting to do is sell or trade my kit for one of the mirrorless setups...I love my camera, but these days I use it less and less simply because it's a hassle to lug around. I'd love to get my hands on an Olympus OM-D E-M5. I know I'll loose some features by making the switch, but honestly, I don't use 95% of what my camera has to offer.

Nick, I'd like the #50 Canon Pimp spot. I've got a dandy A590-IS P&S and later this year I'm acquiring a T2i and having it modded to full spectrum for astrophotography, IR, UV and of course 1080P videos of my fish.

At the end of the day, just make sure you're happy with what you end up with. Everyone has their preference. If you really want mirrorless, get that and don't look back. That's my philosophy at least. Good luck!
