This isn't quite another "Which one is better?" thread but more of a question period where I ask questions and where others answer based on their expertise and experience.

I am not a troll nor do I actually believe there is a difference between either that can make or break a photographer but I am intrigued as to why some people find differences between products that without creative input from a human being do nothing more than act as heavy and expensive paperweights.

I have been a Canon user since day one and in talking to people and reading forums, I have come across certain assertions others make about each brand. I am often left wondering how much truth there is to each statement so I am going to write down statements I have encountered in the last few years and I hope others can chime in to where such "facts" originated from and if there is any truth to them. Here it goes and don't ask me to source where I've heard or read each statement but I assure you, they are out there.

1) "Canon professional lenses are better"

2 "Nikon consumer lenses are better"

3) "Nikons are more often employed in the studio setting due to superior flash systems"

4) "Most sport/wildlife photographers use Canons becuase XYZ"

5 "Most landscape photographers use Nikons"

6) "Canons create 'disney' colors when shooting JPEG"

7) "Nikon JPEGs have a green tint to them"

8) "The older you are, the more likley it is you shoot with a Nikon"

The ultimate in useless advice:

"Buy what I have, because it's what I have."

Often offered, often taken.
