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

i'll check again.

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?

Top advice IMO.

since price is a concern, look at a adorama canon factory t1i refreb, they are cheaper and has 1 year warranty, return to adorama. All other canon factory refrebs at other shops only has a 90 day.

Or a Refurb XSi/50D. Or even a 40D. All are a nice step up performance-wise from a XT.

in the entry level dslr market, canon owns it. They have some of the best products out there. Bang for the buck it is pentax.

I'd actually say Sony right now. Especially with all the cheap primes they released last year.

Yeah, they release allot of cheap primes, but they are all cdd sensor in the entry market. And do not compare to nikon, pentax or canon in performance. Given the choice of a t1i vs the A390, think most people will take the canon over the sony if price was not a concern.

how reliable would sony be though there coming out with new things left and right but im sure they cant keep it up at this rate, Im probably wrong i don't follow Sony at all, but in my area Sony doesn't seem too big compared to Canon and Nikon and im thinking thats the consensus world wide they always been big names so much that one would buy that brand over another right?

Movie mode and megapixels mean more than CMOS vs CCD to entry level shoppers. A lot of amazing work has been done with CCD sensors. I saw a gallery a few days ago of night shots taken with a D60 and I was really impressed.

Sony is releasing a lot right now in addition to all the Minolta and Zeiss lenses that will work natively on Sony cameras. The reason they're releasing a lot is they're new (compared to the legacy companies) in the camera market and releasing many innovative things. They are growing though, will catch up with the big boys soon. For reliability, I've only seen internet complaints (and mainly gearheads coming here to bash Sony) about the Alpha line of cameras. Actual users I've shot with really didn't have many complaints with them, just the guy I used to shoot often with sold his to fund a Leica.

Please use punctuation properly next time :)

Well for entry shopper the sony entry also fail to meet their need. No HD, yes some of the older camera still produce very good photos. But the other thing entry level shoppers are looking for is better low light with the kit lens that their pns could never do. So higher iso is also important in the segment. And the A390, A380, A330, an A290 fail to meet. More entry level camera does not mean they dominate it the segment, more is just more.

But with those new primes they are 2.8, not the 1.8 or 1.4 that canon and nikon has. And there is only a 2/3 of a stop advantage over kit lenses at 3.5.

The Sony A580 shots I have seen are as good or better than the 60D and 7D. A55/a33 is 1/2 stop behind thanks to the light sucking pellicle mirror, but plenty good. Also the primes Sony has released recently are the 30mm f2.8, 35mm f1.8, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f2.8 and the kit lenses are nowhere near those apertures at those focal lengths. Also keep in mind Sony bodies all have IS. So how about a 35mm f1.8 stabilized for $200. Sign me up when Canon gets one! The pricing on those lenses are all under $250. That's awesome for someone who never plans to start charging.
