Another reason i picked Nikon
I dont want to be mistaken for a 16 year girl or a pedophile at the park.
Also, because nikodoby shoots Nikon.
Then you should stop logging into Justin Beiber fan chat rooms and driving around the park after school in a windowless van! ;^)
Seriously though, today I actually did help sell a Nikon camera. I was at my local camera store buying film when this young lady, who was as cute as a button, walked in. The sales guy was with another customer so she walks over to the canon section and asks me, "Have you ever heard of Nikon? Are they a good brand?" I smile and say, "I think I've heard of them before." :^)
She strikes up a conversation and asks me a lot of questions which echo a certain forum I spend way to much time on. Based on her budget and needs, I walk her over to the Nikon "aisle" and point out the D3100 behind the counter. And just like that, she tells the sales guy she wants to buy it! She doesn't even try the camera out! She just buys it based solely on my recommendation! After all these years the Niko Doby charm still sparkles in my eyes! *twinkle, twinkle* ;^)
