    actually i am also know considering to get Canon or Nikon ... sold my 450D away and now stuck with choices
    There is a market for everything. Lol. I heard that Pentax also has in body image stabilisation. So that's the plus point of Pentax.

    Lol. Maybe you would want to stick with Canon since your ex-camera is a 450D. You would be more familiar with the interface.

    imo.

    Hi,

    Do lots of research on the various camera models that you are interested in. Each individual camera got different characteristic in their output. Find the one you like most. Different brands got different approach to what digital photography is. For me one got source to find out all these is the internet. Look at all the reviews and test pictures related to the camera you are interested in. dpreview.com is a good site. A man's meat could be another man's poison. So take your time to find that camera which can give you what you want.

I've been surveying around and most of the shop owners has been telling me to get the Nikon and they can give me good offer on the nikon. Any advise from anyone out there? I'm quite a newbie thus not really that familiar on the detail technical aspects of the cameras. Thanks.
    hi i use pentax so i recommend pentax de

    kekekekeke!!!!!!!!!~~~~








    jokes aside, to be entirely unbiased, i'd say if you are new, and you have a limited budget, pentax is the best for you. i doubt many people will disagree.

    the other day i met a zimbawe dude who looked at my k20d.

    he mentioned it is good camera that can survive the swamps of africa and added : "in africa, we say "canons are designed by salesmen, nikons are designed by salesmen, pentax is designed by photographer."

    so how, my zimbawe dude disagree with your european dude. SHIRTS OFF! BAR BRAWL!!!!!!!!

    I'm sure every brand has its own people with their little "survival story"

    my canons taken a couple direct paintball hits, dousing with water and countless rain drops and she's still refusing to back down..
    I'm sure nightmare has probably dropped his pentax into the sea while shooting some of his awesome landscapes shots..
    I've heard of nikons that have been dropped into pools of mud and come out working fine...

    so its not about which brand you choose its really just which advantage do you want to get from each one?
    ie:
    - you choose canon you have access to arguably cheaper lens range
    - nikon you generally get access to nicer bodies, specially if you want to upgrade later
    - pentax you get best 'bang for buck' and again arguably cheaper equipment

    btw wheres rashkae, galdor and the sony gang? i figured they would have preached the word of sony alphas to this thread by now?

    Selling off Pentax stuff is easy enough, unless you are looking at 2-3days turn around.
    Then again, ppl seldom sell off a Pentax camera quickly within a few months usage. Why should they anyway, the cameras are full featured to last and usually 1 model is released for each user segment (ie. entry, advanced) per year.

    To all those who have replied, Thanks for all the advise and opinions tha you all have given. I really appreciate it. It took me a long time to decide and I finally purchased a nikon D5000. First main reason is my uncle owns a nikon and I am currently sharing his lenses. Thus I believe it is a better option for me. I am still learning and enjoying my nikon. Thanks again to thos who has contribute their pointers. cheers.
