honestly, I can't answer that question. Nobody on CS can truthfully give you a definite answer. The fact that many many people own either one is testament that both are good cameras. They have slightly different features. Which features are important to you, might determine the camera you eventually decide on.

so... please help us to help you... thank you.

i asked myself the same question couple of months ago too.. in the end i went for the canon 500D , probably due to the size ??? cuz 500D kinda smaller abit . but my advice is that len is more important.

whichever fits your hand better

You are the limiting factor to good pictures. Not camera... :bsmilie:

Remember, YOU will be using it, so it is YOU who needs to decide. You won't let other people tell you what car to buy, what woman to marry, etc, right? It's a personal choice. Go and feel the cameras for yourself.

I too had to make that choice, but I went with the 500D since I feel it's better for me. You can try out Canon cameras at vivocity; play with it the whole day, find your what you need, then buy the camera.

you might want to check yourself...
picture quality wise, i think it is similar..

what is the thing that you feel important?

For me, I like the camera handling and color tone of nikon D5K. My preference though.

Lol... you can never put canon and nikon in the same conversation and expect a truly objective answer.

I am a Nikon user, i love it because i just do.

As mentioned by many of the previous replies, is that you really have to take some time to go down to the shop and try out for yourself. Research. See what you need. Then decide which is the camera for you.

TS - every cameras has their pros and cons. There isn't one perfect camera for everyone because we all have different expectations. Your job is actually very simple. Go down to the camera shops and try them out for yourself. Buy the one you are most comfortable with.

best to go down to showroom or shop and try the camera yourself. :)
