Finally had a chance to shoot with a Canon
After borrowing a friend's EOS 5D over a recent weekend, I've come away thinking that this particular unit was a pretty sweet camera unto itself...to the point that it [i]nearly[/i] makes me regret continuing with Nikon when I finally made the switch to digital SLRs. I can only image what the various EOS-1D versions are like, not that I'm likely to spend that sort of paper on one. I liked the D2Xs I used awhile back over the course of a week, but the 5D still seems like a much better deal. And despite how much I like my D200 (and to a lesser extent, my D70s), I keep telling myself that I still only have a half-dozen digitally-based Nikkor lenses...and that it's not to late to jump ship. If it wasn't for all that 35mm film-based Nikkor glass I own (sigh).
