Decisions decisions

So I have decided to switch to Nikon. I know, shocker. Last week I sold my Canon 60D with the 18-200mm kit lens. Initially i just wanted to get rid of the lens since i have already bought a few lenses to replace it. I had purchased the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116 Pro DX Ultra Wide Angle, the Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 SP XR Di LD Aspherical (IF), Rokinon 8mm Fish EYE and Canon 50mm f/1.8.

However the number of autofocus points and the image quality of the new-er Nikons have got me stuck in the middle.
What to do what to do. I have been doing research for the past few days on Canon vs Nikon.... and a little cost analysis and for now I'm still stuck.

First I had looked at Canon 6D and if you click the link B&H Photo has a great deal on it. Canon 6D with 24-105mm f/4 L for $2100. But for $200 more I could have the Nikon D610  With 24-85mm lens which is supposed to be just as sharp.

Here are the things that intrest me about the cameras.

Best Price  2100 + Tax B&H 2300 + Tax B&H 1250 + Tax BB 1300 + Tax BB

The problem I have right now is, I can't really justify going full frame. It's so much money. I could use that 1500 difference of what ever it is to invest in better glass.

Here is a good read from Ken Rockwell about lens sharpness. And an other great article by the same Ken Rockwell about how to Fix Unsharp Images. Check out his website he has lots of great stuff. More on this subject soon.

Till then i will leave you with a few shots that i have taken Sat night with my EOS M. Enjoy. And don't forget to check out my Facebook Page
