Well, there's the difference mosswings...

I'm about to spend up to about $16 thousand updating my supertelephoto rig. My 500 f4 AF-S is now 17 years old. Unfortunately Nikon doesn't currently offer either a lightweight 500mm or 600mm supertelephoto or the APS-C camera to go with it. Canon's EOS 70D doesn't quite cut the mustard as a camera, but they have the lenses. So, with a 7D Mark II on the horizon, who knows?

Speaking of Thom, he says that Nikon just can't see the pro DX wildlife market. Why should I be happy with a company that refuses to support what I do to the point where I'm invisible to them? And why - given that I will be moving to a hardware-independent software platform that favours Canon - would I buy Nikon unless by some remote chance they have the best products for my purposes by let's say this winter?
