Because the less expensive Nikons do not provide metering with manual focus lenses(and most of the lenses I have are manual). Canon(and other manufacturers)also make great cameras, but I have about 20 Nikon mount lenses. So I guess you could say I'm married to Nikon.
We are newly weds still on our honeymoon! Before nikon I used a phone! Most of those pics/vids are 4tanks2day. I only have three lenses none of which are really up to fish photography, my macro is fast enough but focal length too long and the tele zoom doesn't focus nearer than five feet it isn't one of the trinity either! I don't yet own a separate flash but reading here it's now on the long list! I'm gutted about the new D7100 I can't get one because it doesn't accept my off brand (sigma) macro lens. I'm sure that could've been fixed, it's just that one lens. Maybe Santa can help me out. . . .

Beautiful pics in this thread! Here are a few of mine. I hope you like!

Taken with a Canon 5D Mark III
Usually set ISO to 6400 since I'm not using flash and want a high shutter speed
Lens used is either 24-70 or 70-200...and usually at the long end
Aperture is usually 2.8 or 4.5. Although there may be one or two at 8.0
While balance is Auto but after reading the thread I may give the custom setting a try!














These two were taken with a Lensbaby Composer:

I've never noticed ill effects. Actually my fish don't even get scared with flash on. Some do, some don't. It won't hurt them at all from what I've noticed.

Well I have a dSLR camera now. I have a Canon Rebel t3i with 15-55mm and 75-300 mm lens. It takes some great shots. I've only taken one of my aquarium so far. Click image for larger version
