Should I switch to Canon? Help from you guys.
Jul 9, 2012

Hi Canon forum,

I am currently a Nikon amateur and was wondering if I should switch over to Canon when moving to FX. Here is my Nikon equipment:
Nikon D50
50mm 1.4G
85mm 1.4G
SB800 Flash

I have been agonizing over the D800 and researching thick and thin about it... and it doesn't seem to suit my style. I love shooting people and portraits. I looked at the 5D Mark III for a while and looks like the AF system is worth considering over the D800. Also, I haven't seen shots of portraits that were pleasing with the D800 yet at all... the Nikon forum is filled with landscape/macro shots, which was probably what the D800 was made for.

I was also looking at the ergonomics of the cameras and it would seem that the Canon is a bit smaller? Would it suit my skinny long hands more?

If I do move over to Canon, I plan to buy a 24-70mm and 70-200mm zoom lens... is that a good plan? Or should I stick with primes like I did with Nikon? I don't evn know what primes to get. The Nikon 85mm 1.4G is one best lens I have ever shot with. What should I do? Thanks.
