    Wah I used to think that price was comparable between the brands... Don't want to OT but Sony seems to be a lot cheaper.

    From sony.com.sg

    Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm F2.8 ZA SSM - 2,599 SGD

    70-200mm F2.8 G - 2,999 SGD

    16mm F2.8 Fisheye - 1,199 SGD

    no need to follow what your friends already got...just buy what you feel its best for you...

    all my friends and i use different brands...guess all brands less pentax..haa....
    in fact i will say..all brands offer more or less the same things...some with better variant of lens..some cheaper..etc...you will need to ask yourself whether you will be using them in the first place....

    Being top of the field Nikon and Canon are both ultra-usable.

    But do realise this; such companies compete by aiming at the other's weaknesses. So you will be not able to find equivalent cameras to compare.

    Some examples;

    5D Mark II vs D700
    -21.1 mpx vs 12.1 mpx; Canon wins megapixel race.
    -1920 x 1080 High-definition vs no video capability. Canon has an extra feature.
    -9 AF points vs 51 AF points. Nikon wins with more focus flexibility (actually since Nikon has a more powerful focus sensor we could say it wins twice.)
    -3.9 FPS vs 5-8 (With Grip) FPS. Nikon one can machine-gun.

    We can see they are like apple and orange, landscape and sports.

    450D vs D90
    -3.9 FPS vs 4.5 FPS. Nikon somewhat faster but close numbers subject to buffer and add. factors.
    -No video vs 1280 x 720 HD. Nikon has it.
    -Real ISO 100 - 1600 vs ISO 200 - 3200. Nikon can shoot in lower light if you willing to suffer more noise.
    -I guess the D90 should be more expensive?

    Budget consumer or bigger budget consumer?

    Another additional general comparison example;

    Nikon has built in CLS wireless flash system. Canon users need to buy a ST-E2 transmitter to do the equivalent.

    But wait!

    You cannot sync more than shutter of 1/250 on Nikon's standard CLS.

    What if i like to shoot off cam flash in bright sunlight at super big aperture (like f/2.8 - f/1.4)!?

    Then nikon also offer a transmitter with hyper sync at similar pricing which can control it's macro flash.

    I loved my D70 trial days and 20D trial days. Now i own a 5D and find myself wanting a D300 AF system. I hope you get my message although quite technical!

    It's like Nike and Adidas. It's a case of personal preference. Some may like N, some like C, some like P, some like O while others like S. But in the end, it's the photographer using the camera that counts.
