Umm...digital photography one course in February of this year...20 students one teacher...19 Canons 1 Nikon plus teacher had a Nikon. Instructor and me both Nikon FX...all other students crop Canons. When asked about their choice of Canon nearly all responded by saying they had read on the net of Nikon cameras having a lot of problems. Not saying you are wrong by any stretch...I'm just saying.
