    It would have been interesting to see a split between crop and FF.

    I have progressed through P&S (Sony Mavica back in the 1990s) to Canon crop, then Canon Full frame and now the Blad and PhaseOne back is my primary camera. That said the little lUmix FZ35 gets a pretty fair workout too. But I do consider the Blad my primary camera.

    Sony, mainly because I don't like handling a brick when I shoot and I like to be different

    am wondering why there are more canon users than others? is it because canon users get more value from their camera?

    I can't speak for everyone, but in my case, yes, I thought Canon was (and continues to be) better value. They have led the way in shooting HD video with DSLRs, and as a film-maker AND photographer it was like buying a stills camera and getting an HD video one for free. Same goes for every lens. XD Unfortunately, Nikon are lagging in every respect with DSLR video.

    In terms of absolute image quality, ergonomics, and auto-focus, however, Nikon has a lot going for it. If I wasn't a videographer, I might have been tempted by Nikon.

    Sheep? Seriously, most of it is about marketing. Canon are a big company and advertise a lot, they make photocopiers, printers and more. It is a brand name people know. They (along with Nikon) have the longest history of many of the camera makers. Nikon is a bit more specific (ever seen a Nikon photocopier).
