Nikonian is a term for photographers who have come to appreciate the Nikon camera system for is ruggedness and quality. Nikon and Canon, as of 2005, dominate the North American digital SLR market with 80% of all DSLRs sold. This high level of competitiveness has lead to much name-bashing from both sides but neither company would be what it is today without the heel-nipping competition provided by the other.
The Nikonian Website offers a portal for advise on Nikon camera products and Nikkor lenses and general photography discussions.

After shooting on three different camera systems for a number of years I became a Nikonian after realising that the camera company with the best marketing strategy does not necessarily make the best products. Nikon blows at marketing.
P.S. Nikon made Canon's first lens and Canon won't put that in its official history. (when Nikon was Nikkor and Canon was Kwanon)
