So, for various reasons I am keeping the Canon 60D, with the 70-200mm lens. I am playing around with it, and I am just really amazed.
The first thing I notice, is that over my D7000, this camera is a whole lot heavier. Considering that I cannot handle much weight in my hand after my accident, this isn’t a good thing. It is heavier, heftier, and with the lens, I am sure that with a strong enough hit, I could kill someone.
I checked out a 50mm f/1.2 from the cage, mainly because it is significantly smaller than the 70-200, because learning how to use a canon with a lens bigger than my forearm was just no good. I am going to attempt to save up some money to buy a regular 50mm f/1.8, just like the one I almost always use with my Nikon.
So far my favorite part is the swivel screen and the spinning dial, however, I hate how the on and off switch is on the left, the on/off on a Nikon is much better designed, and the dial is weird. Why the fuck is shutter priority “Tv” mode? On a nikon is is “S” which makes much, much more sense.
So far I am liking the camera, but I need to play with it more, a lot more.
