Hey Aftab,

Thanks for your reply.

Now coming to what i shoot, i am not a professional. I am immensely passionate about photography, and am mainly into street photography, portraits and a few events. I want a camera that i can carry with me at most times, and can capture the moment when i need it to.

As some of the people have pointed out the Nikkor 24-120, what dyou think of it? Dyou think that the Nikkor 24-120 F/4G VR compares to the Canon 24-105?

Thanks,

Prateek

I have owned or used more than a dozen Canon lenses, but never used Canon 24-105. And I have used only three Nikon lenses, 24-120 is not one of them. So, I can't give you my personal opinion. But I have a friend who shoots exactly what you shoot and he uses Canon 24-105  and 5DII almost exclusively. And guess what, he continues win international awards. You can have a look at his pictures here.

Sometimes, I wonder what the fuss with all these gears!!

I am an enthusiast like you. I have a milder form of GAS. Recently I bought a highly acclaimed Sigma 35/1.4 for D600. Now I am thinking, what the fuss!!

Anyways, I would say get 5DIII. Its a gem. And if you like 24-105 focal range, either get the Canon version or the Sigma version, preferably Sigma. And if you like shallow DOF and nice bokeh you can add a 1.4 prime later.

My opinion of course.
