>You are right. Cannon is definitely YESTERDAY'S DSLR camera >company.
...and as these things inevitably go in cycles, it is probably also tomorrow's DSLR company. And Nikon will probably be the day after that's DSLR company, if we still give a rat's about DSLRs by then.
But who cares? As long as Nikon continue to develop cameras that outperform both my capabilities as a photographer and the reach of my wallet, I will continue to be a Nikon user, because even if XXX manufacturer brings out something spectacular, I can't afford to invest in a change of brand, given the investment in Nikon gear I have already made. I have a D70; there are now several choices in the Nikon range that offer me upgrading opportunities, without even considering Canon, Pentax, Olympus...whatever. How many choices of unaffordable (for most photographers anyway) gear do you need?
