Why not get Canon 50mm 1.2 vs Nikon 50mm 1.4
Oct 27, 2007

Before I start, I have been a loyal Nikon user since I started taking pictures 10+ years ago. I have been posting on this forum for roughly 4 years. I am not an active contributer, but an active reader.

I just ordered a bunch of new lenses for my upcoming D300, a 70-200 2.8, Sigma 10-22, Sigma 30mm 1.4.

My friend just showed me images of a Canon 30D with 50mm 1.2 and I was blown away (low light images). This lens is amazing.. I was involved in a photoshoot last week in Cupertino (I was the subject) and the photographer had a 5D with both 50mm 1.2 and 85mm 1.2 ... I haven't quite seen anything like them. They are amazing lenses --

My question is not whether the D300 is a better camera than the 40D, because it's likely a more feature filled camera. The question is, if I'm going to invest in lenses, should I not just buy a 40D and dump it next year when Canon releases a new FF? I love indoor photography.
