I don't agree that Canon has better lenses then Nikon. And definitely not MUCH better lenses.
Both are very good, there are some points that Canon has better, but there are some other points that Nikon has better.
Canon used to be THE sport photography camera, but Nikon is now comparable with Canon, is what I read.
And I did a LOT of reading, for reasons why I should go to Canon :p And to be honest, I didn't really find good reasons why I should switch from Nikon to Canon. But it was just this feeling that I had so I just did it! :P
I also know a very good, professional, horse photographer, who's using a Nikon.
Although, I love my new Canon
I really want the 70-200 f2.8 too! So expensive :(
Very nice underwater photo's! So you dive? Cool!
