Re: Nikon vs Canon; a few question

After 35+ years shooting film with various 4x5, 2-1/4, and 35mm cameras, I switched to DSLR digital. I chose Canon for several very personal reasons:

1. I liked Canon's ergonomics and menu layout better

2. Canon responded to my calls and emails better than Nikon when requesting information

3. I could easily get Canon product manuals, whereas Nikon seemed to always throw up roadblocks (must enter serial number / print capability disabled).

4. The poor response from Nikon to a friend and fellow photographer who had a service issue.

Bottom line: I have multiple Canon bodies and many Canon lenses and accessories and am happy with Canon. Again, a personal decision and my experience.
