Hey everyone.. This post is sort of a rant, but its also a request for help in how to deal with situations like these...

I shoot Nikon, I always have (which hasn't been that long, but thats beside the point). I don't have that much gear, but I have enough to get by for my work (photojournalism). People who shoot Canon really enjoy ranting about how good their cameras are and how 8mp is better and how the D2h is the 1D four years too late, and on and on and on. And I have to admit, if I were to do it all over again, I'd probably buy a MkII just because I'm a gearhead.

I respect Canon. I have to admit, their technologically lightyears ahead of Nikon. What I don't understand is why they like making me feel inferior... and how I can get them to shut up and move on so I can shoot.... It's just irritating...

Is it just me? What do you all do in these kinds of situations?

Thanks everyone,

~Shaun
