Re: Maybe it competes with Nikon DX format and G lens
In reply to jkirkerx, Oct 9, 2004

We now see clearly that Nikon has a well defined plan and strategy: 1.5x and they are sticking with it. As the number of pix and quality iincrease, there is no need for 'ff' as we are seeing now. The D2x can easily compete and surpass film 35mm.

Canon seems to chase the future in more than one fronts, but soon or later (I think it will be soon) it will have to choose. 1.3x, 1.5, "FF". It is annoying(and financially not sound) to have more than one cameras from Canon and can't use them interchangeably with its lenses.

lens will work best on my 20D", it must get asked 20 times a day.
I think Canon just added a ton of newbies with the 20D, like the
D70, and is adding a complete new line of lenses based on the 1.6
crop. I wouldn't be surprised if they had an L series of EFS
mounts.

Nikon has standardized on the 1.5 crop called the DX format, and
made a new line of lenses called G lenses that are pretty nice and
affordable. Nikon seems to have the bases covered on the consumer
end. But I think this will hurt Nikon in the future, as their pro
market continues to shrink because many pro's have switched to
Canon Gear.

Both Companies stand to make a ton of money off the consumers and
prosumers in this new digital revolution that we live in today.
This reveloution will rival bw to color tv's, and the home pc boom.
