This type of thread has been repeated a few times. Majority would pick Nikon anyway.

Holga! I heard they'll introduce a digital back for their fine cameras in 2010.

Canon if I were going to go for a D Rebel or 50D, Nikon if I were looking at a higher level body.

Though I would have to fight out the whole 50D/5dMKII vs D300/D700 thing, and with Zeiss primes now available for both........

Damn, I am just sticking with Pentax.

Most folks here would say Nikon. However, if I stay with APS sized sensors, I would stay with Pentax, but if I wanted to go to FF, and I would have to win the lottery first, I would switch to Canon because of their lenses and I would want higher resoloution than Nikon currently offers in FF. The 5D Mk ll appeals....

If I should switch system, I would buy a Leica DSLR, because it is clearly the most cool-mega-super-awsome dslr on the market (:

no one can deny that! hehe

Nikon definitively for the high Iso and the clear strategy.

Abondonning the pixel race like they did means that photographers have still some power against marketers.

Anyway I'm still happy with Pentax right now.
