I am an def a Canon fan, have always used Canon. I got told of the results of a recent survey in Europe. (Cant remember the official source, but will find and provide)

Canon are most popular in the 20-35 yr age group
Nikon are most popular in the 35 + group

80% of Camera's/Lenses sold (between Canon/Nikon) are Canon/Nikon to each age group i.e. 20-35 80% Canon etc

Would you say that is accurate? How many here are Canon or Nikon users. (Please let me know if you are not a Canon/Nikon user as dont want to leave you out :lol: :lol: )

Let me know what model of camera you have as well i.e. 20D, D200 etc, so we can do some stats

I am a Canon fan - though I started with a Mamiya SLR too many years ago!

I love the Canon L lenses, thats perhaps why I have stayed with them. Too expensive to change anyway.

Sadly, according to you, I should be using Nikon as I am 35+ :lol:

Hmz, I turned 36 last year and bought new Canon gear after my old gear was stolen. According to these stats I should have bought Nikon :wall:

I'm a Nikon user.

Main reason for choosing Nikon was that I used my brother's Nikon F401 about 15 years ago. I liked his Nikon camera, so when I bought a new camera for myself, I chose the F801 which I used for about 12 years. 3 years ago I bought a F80, and now I just got my first digital SLR, a D70s.

P.S.: My first SLR ever was also a Praktica.
P.P.S.: I'm 35+ so the statistics are right in my case. :wink:

Hving been through Zenit, (Honeywell) Pentax, Olympus and Nikon over the last 40 years, my last three SLRs have been Canons and I can see no need to consider changing again :wink:

Used to be a Pentax man – still have all the gear.
Canon Hi8 Video-cam :)

but

What can I say? – then I saw the light so to speak.

Looks like the saying “with age comes real wisdom” holds true in my case – Nikon D70 :twisted:

Thanks for this thread, guys :thumbs_up:

I'm contemplating the purchase of a top DSLR and this will help me decide which, Canon or Nikon ? However, I won't throw away my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 with the amazing optical image stabilizer and very high zooming.

BTW, I'm 35+ :wink:
