Well it is if you're stuck at f/5.6 :lol:

Joking aside, that's true. I remember some "DSLR-like" bodies that for some weird reason were cleaner at 400 than at 200 and then proceeded to become unusable (almost no edge detail left) at 800.

Regarding Nikon's AF-S, it's the same as USM, all current Nikon lenses have AF-S. Yes, the cheap 50mm lens don't have AF-S, big deal. For a general walkaround, Nikon's 35mm f/1.8 is far better on a crop body and cost less than 200, Canon doesn't even offer such a good lens for crop bodies. It's funny that this got mentioned a lot in Canon forums, but not in Nikon forums.

I think Nikon's D3100 is the best in terms of ISO performance/price.

Yeap! Canon just doesn't want to give us a good 28 to 35mm EF-S prime that 1.8 for less than $200. I've ranted about this here https://photography-on-the.net …979585&highligh​t=nikon+35

Why do that when the 28 costs more than twice that? Are you trying to cut into their profits? ;-)a

But nikon will not produce a 100 prime for d5000 and d3000 owners, they will for d90 and up users. With canon you can get a 200 28mm 2.8 still. Nikon 450 dollar for the AF-s 50mm 1.4.

Not sure why you're not looking at the Canon T2i or the Sony A55, but I would if I were you, if you don't mind Sony products and have no beef against Sony, take a look at that camera, pretty amazing for the price. Why are you only stuck with the T1i and the D5000?

I have taken a look at the A55 at the store. The focus is smoke'n fast, and since its full-time it opens up a new world for video. My 2 cents.

I think Sony has done a lot with the Minolta brand and it was recently announced that they beat Nikon in the UK.

For the Op I would go for the D90 as well its a bigger body then your XT AF is way better and IMO the ergonomics on nikon are better then canon,

glad you're sticking with the canon t1i. although...if you were gonna get a canon, i'd try to shell out the few extra hundred for the t2i. the upgrade is worth the money.

Btw, just to confuse things a bit more, since Pop Photo (or should I say the People magazine of the camera world) has been held in such high regards lately due to apparently successful trolling by their reviewers, it is worth mentioning that they called the A55 "Camera of the year" for 2010.

People Magazine camera recommendations ?
How about Consumer Reports?
want to guess their top recommendation ?

The A55 is a nice little came, and the full time AF is a plug for video. But to use the high burst rate, you give up creative control. Camera picks all the setting when shooting at 10fps. But sony did do a nice job with the A580. It is up there with canon and nikon. And it has a mark improvement over the A55 in image quality with the 1/3 stop that the A55 loses to the translucent mirror. The A55 is a nice camera, but it is not the wonder that the specs makes it out to be.

The cheapest current model from either Canon or Nikon? (T2i most likely due to larger marketshare).

If I read Consumer Reports for camera reviews, I might as well pick up a copy of the Weekly World News for camera reviews. Both have about the same journalistic quality.

Not that my opinion matters or that you want it, I have had several cameras and I love my nikons but canon does produce nicer colors and the lens selection is so much better and affordable, which everyone already knows all this, just saying. I think you can get a t1i cheaper than d5000 on b and h video.com
