Thinking about it. I am going to make an informed decision that's for sure but, have any here moved from NIkon to Canon?

Why you would ask? I have a D300 and D700 along with the 24-70/14-24/85 f/1.4/70-200 VR/ 50mm f/1.4.

Don't get me wrong. I love them but, am having concerns about Nikon. When I bought the 24-70 new, it came with the focus ring extremely stiff. Had to send it back. I thought "How could one of their top lenses escape such scrutiny at QC? Now I see the new D3s with 12MP and think "why not 24?" They also seem to be coming out with more DX lenses and focusing on the DX crowd rather than what (I thought) would be a big effort to go FX with bodies and lenses. When I went with Nikon it was because I thought the bodies were better built and they seemed to be surpassing Canon with the D200 then D300/D700 and so forth.

I'm not about to jump ship. Not quite. Just thinking about it. I guess I am kind of discouraged with Nikon lately. The new 85 micro (DX). the disappointing DX bodies. Seems they came out with the 14-24 and 24-70 and then went into hiding about FX format.

Am I the only one thinking along these lines? I love my gear but would be lying if I wasn't thinking about selling it all and replacing it with Canon. Oh, if I had the $$ I'd grab that lucious M9 and go Leica crazy but, this would surely result in a divorce!

Any thoughts appreciated.
