Canon vs. Nikon
2 months ago

This maybe a Ford vs. Chevy type discussion but I'll ask it anyway.

A 2004/2005ish I got a Canon EOS20D as a freebie and loved the camera but it is getting dated and in my opinion it is too heavy as a carry around camera.  I also think the lenses for it are also a little slow and beaten up so will probably be replaced.  The options for its replacement are the slightly lighter Canon 700D or Nikon D5200.

There are lots of comparison sites that list some negligible difference.  The lens options are pretty simliar in feature and price and the cameras are almost the same price.

I'm leaning toward the 700D just because I've enjoyed the Canon and I am used to the interface.  Size wise the 700D is slightly smaller in my hand than the 20D so I'd have to get used to the new shape regardless of model.

So the question eventually is, go with what you know or after 10 years are there any other good reason to go one way or the other?

Thanks,

Gary
