I was just visiting the Consumer Reports site to look something up, and for the fun of it I decided to see what they had to say about my Nikon D200.
Here’s every digital SLR camera they rated:
- Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT
- Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D
- Canon EOS 20D
That’s it. No Nikon DSLR‘s at all. The Canon v.s. Nikon argument can go either way, depending on your needs, but you can’t argue that Nikon has some important cameras out there. The D70 is legendary for starting the whole DSLR revolution. Even more damning, the article is dated July 2006, but they haven’t rated the three hottest DSLR‘s of the past year—the Nikon D200, the Canon 5D, and the Olympus EVOLT E-330.
Suddenly I’m not so comfortable using Consumer Reports to make buying decisions…
