    from experience, it's best to go down to the retailers to try it out. Don't discount the Sony A33 from your list. hehehe. (Note: i'm nt a sony fan boy, i'm a new user myself. i'm just saying from my experience of using this camera)

    LOL !! after 7.5 years ... from Canon 300D days until now and you're still trying to figure out which cam to get ?

    It actually made a difference in those early DSLR days because there were gaps in technology among the various manufacturers..... but not nowadays.... everyone's about neck and neck on the tech front

    Throw a dart.... u cant go far wrong on where it lands

    best of luck !

    no no.. it's a friendly advise based on experience.. hehe. go to the shop, snap a shot. there you have it. might want to zoom in on the photo to judge the noise level..

    Personally i've used both Cameras for shoots. Tried the D5000 first (my gf's brother's cam) and the 550D (short while,friend's cam)
    Having been a user of none, I found the 550D more user friendly. ISO, F-stop and shutter speed easily changed. D5000, u have to go into the menu to change the ISO.

    Picture quality i found the 550D sharper and clearer thus i chose the 550D.

    Hope I didn't offend anyone and i hope this helps.

    The 550D is a new cam that's very good for its price.

    completely different class and price range from earlier post . I buy my 550D because budget constraint.
    My first choice would be D7000, if budget is not too tight, you'd find in 4-5 reviews said D7000 > 60D

    Tried my friend's D7000, i can't find ISO and shutter speed info in viewfiender, this is in P mode, maybe i miss it.
