Jumping ship
Aug 5, 2014

I'm thinking about Jumping ship from Canon to Nikon..

Right now I have a canon 40D and was saving up to get a canon 6D because it's a full frame camera. a few of my photographer friends said I should just make the jump to nikon..

I was comparing the nikon d610 to the canon 6D, they are both the same price but it seems like the nikon blows the canon out of the water.. As they are both about $2000 on amazon both brand new bodies only. The part that I'm not sure of is all my lenses, flash, and batteries are all canon so it's basicly starting all over. Where as If I move to the 6D everything fits.

I take photos mostly at race tracks so it's all about Speed, light, and fast focus.

Is it better to make the jump or stick with canon.

Both the 6D and D610 are full frame cameras.

I also compared the nikon D610 with the D800 and the results were basicly equal.
