Canon 60D or Nikon D7000 - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Thread Starter 
I've held it at work, and it feels better than my D3000, and worst than the D7000, as it should. I don't need the all metal body, I baby the hell out of my things, and don't go into rough environments. Basically, as far as I can tell, the features they left out, aren't the ones I really cared about.

So what does $200 over the T2i buy?
Better Body, Better ISO performance, Faster Burst, Added top screen, swivel LCD screen.. anything else? I'd rather pay the extra $200 now, and I'd rather not regret it later.

I'll have to keep my eye on that one.

The ones that have caught my eye so far are the 50 1.8, 50 1.4, 85 1.8 and 70-200 f4L.

Thoughts?

You might not like the 50/1.8 after using the Nikon 35/1.8. Unlike the Nikon 35, the Canon 50/1.8 has an older AF micro motor (and not USM) and is a fairly slow focuser. The build quality is pretty cheap too. It still produces excellent images though, so if you really need to save some cash it's the way to go.

The Canon 50/1.4 has some obvious improvements, like better build, USM, slightly wider aperture, better bokeh. It's somewhat soft wide open but I've always enjoyed using it, even after owning L lenses.

The 85/1.8 is a solid lens. The focal length will be pretty tight on APS-C though.

The 70-200 f/4L is worth the money, but the IS version worth it even more. The IS version has an updated optical design and has better IQ.

I'll probably snag the 50 1.4 off the bat, that or the 85 f/1.8. I've never used anything over 55m before, but I did feel boxxed in being stuck at a max of 55mm.

IS is double the price I don't think ill be able to afford it any time soon, I'm already spending more than I should be upgrading a body. (Not that it's tons of money, but I'm about to start college)

EDIT:
Now my minds bring me back to the D7000! ARG!

Yay! My current setup is 17-55, 70-200, 50 1.4 and a 100 macro.

I think it covers most things that I do. I would strongly recommend the 17-55 for your main lens. The 2.8 and IS really makes a lot of difference and takes really sharp pictures.

17-55? Too much. Did you mean the Tamron 17-55 mention above?

Nope, probably the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens.

That is correct. It's the only good lens with f/2.8 + IS + USM. Lens that will be compared with this is usually the 24-70 which doesn't have IS and the 24-105 which only goes up to f/4. I do a lot of shots in low light situations.

I'll have to think about that, it's quite pricey.

How much do they go for used?
