Any macro lens will cost at least Â£400 on its own, so might have to wait a bit before buying one of these. You could buy close-up filters which are cheep and give decent results, but not as good as a true macro.
Well it's more of a basis for choice than the way they feel! I used a D300 and a Nissin flash at the weekend in full manual (other than autofocus) Camera & flash. Although the buttons are in different places there's no real between any of them. At first I liked the idea of the two thumbweels on the Nikon, but now I think I prefer the large wheel on the Canon, but it's such a minor thing, I certainly wouldn't regard it as a deal breaker of one system over another.
Colour on the other hand can be an issue Greens in particular are more saturated on the Canons, some prefer it, others don't. To me they look fantastic on the PC especially when compared agains the Nikon, but the Nikon is more close to what you can see in printed images, so if you're printing a lot then there's not such a big difference. I think this can be a deal breaker because I've seen Nikon users go misty eyed at some Canon shots, because their cameras don't produce the same colours, others say that they prefer the Nikon
