I love my Canon SLR but have used both. I think it is more of a matter of personal preference. Either way you will be getting a great camera.

I started with a Canon 20d, then went to a 30d, then bought a 1Ds MKII. I had to sell all of my equipment about 3 years ago and I'm starting from scratch again. I recently purchased a 60d and I am waiting for the 1Ds MK4 to come out before I buy the next camera body. My choice is solely based on my own requirements.



If you are serious about photography from a hobby or a business perspective, I would first recommend you look at lens choices. Camera bodies are upgraded every two years or so and can become quickly outdated. Good glass stays around and gets used for a much longer period of time.



A friend has a Canon Rebel and she was thinking about upgrading to a 7d. A mutual friend who is a full time photographer made a comment that sunk in and she is sticking with her current camera - the comment was "You want to buy a $2,500 camera and the most expensive piece of glass you own is about $300 - that doesn't make sense"....and he's right. This photographer was using both Nikon and Canon systems. He absolutely hated the Nikon D300 and feels the same way about the Canon 5d.



Find a system that works for you and buy the best glass that you can afford. Concentrate on a camera body from there.

If your friend hates a 5D, than what he likes?

Well...I have a little more complicated idea then others.



At first I have to say that there are no more quality differences between Canon and Nikon. All the difference is the price, build, ergonomics and lenses etc...pictures are the same!



If you are a commercial photographer, go for Canon because it's cheaper. But...



I'm a Nikonian :) Nikon have a great advantage...you can use ALL the Nikon lenses of history on pro level Nikons. Those old lenses are creating good quality pictures and they are extremely cheap. You can't do this on a Canon! Keep this in mind!



...and before everything, go to a store and feel camera in your hand. Check for button positions. It's totally up to you...



One last word, if you will go outdoor, prefer Nikon. If you will stay in the studio, prefer Canon! ;)

right.I think there is no big diffrence between canon and nikon.just learn how to shoot picture and how to use your camera well and how to .This is more important than how to choose camera.camera is just a tool.

The thing he doesn't like about the 5D includes the speed of the camera and the speed of focus. He hasn't used the MKII version.



He likes the 50D and he absolutely loves the 1Ds MKII. We spent the day Monday shooting at a horse track and he was conducting a review of the G5 - and he was pretty impressed with it.
