That is very true. I just seem to notice a far superior image quality coming out of Nikon cameras. I have a decent Canon camera body and an L series lens, but I can't seem to reproduce the same technical quality!
Well THAT is certainly true. ...I guess I mean that if the same person were to take the same picture with two different cameras, my eye would perceive the Nikon as having the better quality. I guess it's subjective!
