I agreed with all of your previous comments but not so sure about Nikon's advantages when it comes to lenses, .......since 2005 Canon introduced some of the finest ever built lenses. - to name only a few:

  • 14 f/2.8 L USM
  • 24 f/1.4 L USM II
  • 70-200 f/4.0 L IS USM
  • 70-200 f/2.8 L IS USM II
  • TS-E 17 f/4.0 L
  • TS-E 24 f/3.5 L II
  • 24-70 f/2.8 L USM II
  • 300 / 400 f/2.8 L IS USM II
  • 500 / 600 f/4.0 L IS USM II

Sure, but Nikon also has its own version of almost, if not every, one of those. It also has its own set of uniquely amazing lenses. The 14-24mm f/2.8 G, for example, which Canon does not have an equal to.

Edited to add: That's not to start a brand war, just saying that's it's really a toss up at the top because they are all so good in so many areas.
