Well it has been 4 awesome years with my Olympus E-30, but it is time to retire her.  I bought my E-30 when I was a semi-hobbyist and it took me very well into my “Pro” days.  I have a nice little nest egg of lenses and flash equipment, but I have to put all of that aside due to Olympus’ unreliability to produce a quality full frame camera, or even a new DSLR for that matter!

I will be purchasing a new camera this week and have been torn between the Nikon D600 and the Canon 6D.  Both of which are priced nearly the same on Amazon so I am debating which I should go with.  I like the idea of Canon as I have always liked their product, I started out with an AE-1 that my Mother handed down to me.  However, most of the comparisons I look at point to the Nikon D600.

I am a bit skeptical though as Nikon has been having several issues with their D600 mirror flinging lubricant onto the sensor.

What do you think, Canon or Nikon?  

Either way I am jumping ship from Olympus.  She did me well until now, but it is time to upgrade!


Old faithful, look even the viewfinder is all beat up! Shows her mileage well!
