55% of me says yes, 43% says no. 2% of me did not respond. I have a +/-
4% margin of error. Hope this helps.

Sometimes, rarely, consumer don't make stupid choices. This would be
one of those times.

It's not a poll.
And no - make your own choices.
At the moment, Canon has weak choices in the consumer dslr market -
where the bulk of sales are made. The Canon dslrs are okay but most
other manufacturers have better product and greater range at entry
level, and a less confusing position on sensor size format.
It would be a shame to see the trend continue and for Canon to become a
minor player in the dslr business.

Definitely. Especially a poll taken in Japan.

Still, Nikon's comeback in D-SLRs has been amazing. Except for the
high-end professional market, where the volumes are low and prices are
high, Nikon finally has a good selection of D-SLRs. The sales numbers
reflect the pent-up demand from Nikon owners that have been waiting for
cameras like the D200 and D80.

It depends on which segment of the market you're interested in. Nikon is
pretty weak in the entry level right now, with the severely de-featured
D40x only slightly cheaper than the far more capable Canon 400D. But in
the mid-range "prosumer" segment, Nikon has some good choices right now.

Where Nikon is lagging badly is on the professional side, but the rumors
of a full-frame camera have started up again, so they may be planning a
foray into the high end.

knock it off. the d40x is not 'severely de-featured.' perhaps it
doesn't meet YOUR needs, but both it and the d40 meet the needs of
millions of other people.

nikon is not lagging badly. the only issue right now is no full-frame
and that is expected to change. the nikon d2x is an excellent pro
camera, used by many pros.
