"Gentoo, you say that Canon can't really keep up with Nikon, but in the late 80's when autofocus came around, Canon was the first to really embrace autofocus, while Nikon was playing catch up. So I wouldn't say that Canon's horrible, although I do hear that their autofocus is really quick, Nikon is not that much slower and slightly more accurate"

I did not say that Canon was horrible. What I said was 1) Their AF isn't a good as Nikons are at the momenet. I believe I even gave an example by mentioning one or two of Nikon CURRENT AF systems so the 1980's should not have been a source for any confusion. 2) I also gave an example of when Nikon was trying to play catch up and again, I didn't have to go back two decades to do it. 3) I also mentioned the current processor technology that Nikon uses as simply being a bit better.
I am the last person on this forum to say that Canon is horrible. Ergonomically retarded maybe...oh wait...that's Sony nevermind. My point is I have mentioned on here far too often how Canon has always been an option for me. I just prefer what Nikon has to offer.
