i'm intending to get a dslr, considering between the above 2 cameras. been reading up various threads here as well as reviews elsewhere, have come up with a few conclusions that i think will help me decide, would anyone like to give me advice?
price difference between 400D and D80 for the body only about $100, kit price so different because nikon kit lens is 18-135? meaning, canon/nikon actually abt the same price right?
canon lenses tend to be better at the higher end, while nikon produces good lenses throughout their range? BUT third party lenses for both can be gd quality as well? since both systems abt same price (excluding lenses), then i should just choose which one feels better to me?
then, i've got a few questions...
the kit lenses for canon cannot make it, how abt nikon? or is there better alternative than the nikon kit lens? cuz if i buy body only, i dont know what lens i should go for. would generally be shooting nature, architecture, scenery, etc, not intending to go for extreme macro or tele. (at least not at the moment, heh)
would really appreciate any advice, especially those who have tried the systems before.
thanks in advance!!!
