All the models you have listed are very good cameras which can produce quality results. Instead of listening to your friends, maybe you would like to visit a shop and try them out. Handling and user interface plays a part too. Afterall, what your friend like you may not like and you are the one one using the cam and not him right?
Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony
Most of the times I will b using liveview cos it has 100% coverage.
Ytd just tried canon 550D. The feel is not bad. But yet to try a Nikon d90
hi all, i'm newbie too. just would like to ask what kind of range is Nikon d 90? entry, mid range or etc???? thank you !!!
it's a mid range i think.
Ahhhh.. now im stuck in-between of getting a Nikon D90 or Alpha A550.
I like the fast AF in Live View(SONY).
there's no right or wrong and there's no point pondering on it till the cows come home.
if you are so undecided just go and rent both bodies for 1 week each and try it out.

thanks all for e info,consider nikon d90. been hearing gd feedback abt nikon d90.
do you know in sony where can the settings for colours can be found?
Cause i don't see any option for it.
the canon d550 has been providing very good feel on my hand. and the menus and dslr itself seems to be very user friendly. i tried one at courts megastore the other day.
as for the d90, it's a tad bigger and i dont feel good on hand. it's quite bulky eh. lol. and then i am unfamiliar with the use of the dslr. the promo girl disappear (or siam) when i wanna ask her to intro. LOL
You also mentioned that you like the interface of the 550D, then I suggest you get a Canon body, interface should be relatively similar across bodies of the same brand.
And by the way, Canon names their DSLRs with the 'D' behind the numbers (e.g. 550D), and Nikon have their 'D's in front. Just to make sure nobody shouts at you in the future for naming cameras wrongly
