    eh... you obviously haven't seen the D3100. Better video than Canon 550D.

    And you obviously haven't seen Sony's SLT's, better video than any DSLR.

    Just goes to show how ill-informed some people are... making sweeping statements like that. LOL.

    maybe just not up-to-date, bro

    Probably at the time, Nikon was (admittedly) struggling to match video quality. But I think they constantly try to outdo each other, so it's a never-ending game of one-upmanship.
    Exploring! :)

    ya. There are no definites no absolutes. One day Nikon may choose to drop the ball on pricing and release something so good and so much cheaper than what Pentax is doing.

    As it is now, D7000 will be killing the market for 60D. But in the end, good for us consumers. I am very sure D7000 will win the best camera in some-category this year.

    As for entry level, nothing is beating the value Pentax is offering nowadays.

    Don't argue with the finance minister.

    Just know that there are other good brands as well for knowledge's sake.

    You can buy this if you can part with $16K.

    What has a FF camera do with anything?
    It will be a consideration if one is doing a A0 size prints. thank you pinholecam and DD123.

    Many others here have already given their unbiased view of the better entry level camera. Just to add last thing. You have to look at the available lenses and accessories support for the camera system you have narrow down. Because this will affect your choices and may or may not limit the many different photography genre that you may pursue.

    i have zero experience in photography , so this is my first DSLR , after reading through internet and stuff

    i have limited my choice to

    cannon - 550d/60d ( which friend recommend for best bang for buck )
    sony - a33/a55

    i have tried a55/33 over sony style and here are some stuff i like about it , higher fps , faster focus , continuous AF in video , size is smaller and weight is lighter , body IS , SLT new technology , not sure how much OVF and EVF differ since i nvr use any before plus sony lens are cheaper in general i guess

    i have also went to the cannon showroom in vivo and tried out 550d and 60d , apart from the articulating lcd , build material , 60d have a dial controller which seems useful but have a safety lock for the mode selection which will take some time to get used to

    would the DSLT lose out to the traditional DSLR in the long run
    What are you going to shoot & why a DSLR camera?

    If you wanna learn photography, I recommend you get those entry level cameras first. if you just need a good camera to shoot anything, I think a high end compact camera (eg G11) or the Evil system (kind of compact DSLR type) will be best.

    Good DSLR to start learning photography: I recommend you get 550D or 60D, D3000 or D3100

    P.S DSLR is nice & cool but do you really need it if you're gonna use it just for simple usages?

    Peace! Hope your Sony camera's a good deal.
