However, based on the many advises from friends, its all about the grip. Then on the day when i went to buy my DSLR, i tested those which were in my budget and felt the grip. In the end I bought a Nikon D90.
So, most importantly, go to a shop which has the widest selection of DSLRs for you to play and feel the grip with, and within your budget. Then just buy the one which you feel good gripping with.
just follow your heart and pocket will bring you...
eventually it's your picture that'll count and have value and not the cam.
go try the cameras out and see what u prefer. also try the menus on the camera see which one u prefer. all cameras can take good pictures la, just need to know ur camera well. its like your 2nd or 3rd wife, next to car.
You wouldn't go wrong with either. Go to the shop ASAP and try it out. Stop contemplating and start to learn how to use the camera. In photography, there is also the art aspect, composition, post process and to see light.
So much to learn, don't get bog down by what to buy...
dun really listen to some of the posts which are more of brand wars rather then help
its a never ending war with no winners.. ultimately, its your choice.. no one is gonna blame or criticise you for your choice.
That why people get fooled all the time by numbers, there are some sites that show the real calibrated values, and its not pretty.
