first time poster here.
I've been a canon user for few years now and i was waiting for the 5d MkIII to come out to jump to a fullframe sensor... well let's just say that I'm not happy with it and canon's politics and i don't think i'm going to get one so i'm thinking about jumping ships and come to the dark and golden side for a d800... (any idea on availability?)
I'm only an amateur and i do photography as an hobby (this is my flickr profile if anyone could be interested http://www.flickr.com/photos/ocangelo ), when i've bought my first cheap DSLR (the one that i still have... a 500d/t1i) i couldn't get to like Nikon handling and menu system so i went with canon knowing nothing about photography, just following "my hands", now that i'm a bit more experienced i guess i will have some issue at the beginning being used to canon but it shouldn't really be a big problem... i'm planning to rent a d800/"equivalent" nikon camera for few days and have a play with it anyway just to be 100%.
My main issue with the switch is that i have no idea of what kind of lenses Nikon has and how to replace my current collection so if you guys could tell me what's the equivalent of my current setup of lenses it would be just great, for the time being i'm trying to understand how much it will cost me to jump ship.
(I have no idea yet on where to sell them either so any suggestion on that would be highly appreciated too)
My current lenses are:
Canon 17-40mm f/4L
Canon 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
Canon 50mm 1.4
Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro
Any consideration about size/weight on the Nikon equivalents would be nice too.
Thanks in advance to everyone and happy shooting!
