wah, your claim is too big leh. there are professional photographers with big names working for national geo, big photojournalism who are natural light shooter. and what about landscape, wildlife and street photographers leh. they dont use flash because they dont want. not becoz they donno how to use :D


My claim is tiny (many vs millions) compare to yrs below....;)



since you are into flashes, i agree Nikon is the better one. its good for you. but remember there are millionsss of users out there are not flash users; street, landscape, photojournalist, marine photographers :) everyone has very specific needs that diff manufacturers. like pentax who makes very very value for money dslr and unique pancake lenses that other manu cant compete.:)

Don't need to think so much. If can win a Canon 600D DSLR, then try and be a canon user first lor. It's free anyways. the photo contest is at m.snaptreats.com

If you want Zeiss lenses, ONLY SONY will give you AF.



1. Best CZ Zoom lens: 24-70mm F2.8 SSM
2a. Best CZ prime lens: 135mm F1.8
2b. 2nd CZ prime lens: 85mm F1.4



FYI: Canon ... can get from resale market (Many seller & buyer)

I swear by Canon when it comes to photographic products. Both my video camcorder and digital camera are Canon.

One word: low light performance (when shooting night scenes).

In generally, the technology is pretty mature and there isn't an overwhelming difference that will swing an average user from one radically across brands ( unless dio upgraditis ) . I am a hobbyist that came from MF fim, film SLRS and DSLRS from Nikon, went to Canon DSLRS, before using Sony mirrorless.

Now unless you nitpick and die die need Canon MP-E65mm f/2.8 or EF1200mm tele, then you probably wun be asking what systems to get.

Or if you die die need CLS lighting system, or a DC Nikkor lens then you again probably know wat you want.

Sony's mirrorless line up may not be as wide as canon / nikon, but I would think it would sate most of the average users. Now if you need architectural tilt shift lenses across a variety of focal lenghts, again you wouldn't even be looking at Sony

With regards to whatever sensor technology, you can trust these big makers to constantly innovate and leapfrog each other, this round that sensor good, a month later that competitor comes up with more zai sensor, and never ends ( which is good ).

Flash is pretty decent with Sony too and should suffice for most average users. Some pics with my old aged A7r.
