Cornucopia of Canon




































Today the UPS man came and delivered a veritable cornucopia of Canon goodness. Most of you won't quite grasp the significance of this event but its a pretty huge deal for me and my photography.

Nikon is the arch-nemesis of Canon and in the fiercely competitive photography market, while there may be a dozen or so brands, there are only two considered by professionals... Canon and Nikon. Until today I was a Nikon shooter. Unlike most people, I think both brands have strengths and weaknesses and until recently I've held to the belief that Nikon's strengths outweighed their weaknesses. Well nothing has really changed but Canon released a lens last month that swung me over to their side. The 50mm 1.2. So with all of the other things Canon has going for them this was enough to make me reconsider my loyalty. It seems like Canon is being more innovative and I want in on that.

So I'm now officially shooting Canon and couldn't be more excited.
