LOL! Hence the reason I said, "All my mid-focal range glass are Nikon AIs or Zeiss."

But to be honest, it's hard not to steer completely away from Canon glass. They do have superb lenses. My point is that for the price, a Nikon 1.2 50mm you can pick up a perfect used copy for under $500, whereas you'd have to pay three times that to get the Canon version of it.

What's the difference aside from automatic control? Very little in my opinion. Plus, it has the advantage of your images looking a little organically different to most other photographers who are likely to stick with Canon lenses for this body. A unqiue image is what we all strive for so there is some method to my madness!
