I often wonder if I made the right choice by going with Nikon. A few friends shoot Canon and thought I should go that route. I started out with Nikon in film and liked Nikkor lenses were good. I've also seen a lot of pros use Canon. I want to say I've seen more people using Canon than Nikon. It seems that a lot of pros use canon for sports photography. Most of the people, that I've met, at my local camera stores shoot Nikon though.

A good metaphor is that Nikon vs Canon is very similar to Chevy vs Ford. They both make good products, probably very comparable, but it comes down to personal preference.

Canon seems to have a better selection of lenses. The selection is broader. I doubt this means they are better though.

I also wonder if a lot of the Canons have the issues such as Fall off, distortion, vignetting....etc. I assume they do.

I get the sense that Canon is more main stream and Nikon is more of a small "club" of people die hard Nikonians.

Does anyone have any opinions on this?
