    I have a Canon 500D.

    I see most people on this forum have either nikon D5000 or D90.

    Why is this? Why are they better?

    I cannot see how the nikon D5000 is better, and D90 has features that i have no clue about and im wondering if this is why people choose it.

    Canon 500D is my first DSLR, i got it less than a week ago - christmas ;)

    Well...

    I guess people are getting what they like within their budgets, I mean isn't that why you usually buy something?

    For me, I just preffered the layout of Nikon better. Also, as stated above, the D5000 was in my budget while the D90 was just outside of it.

    I preffer my Canon P&S over my moms Nikon, which is newer.

    d90 felt way more comfortable to me
    d90 had top lcd
    d90 button placement made more sense to me
    d90 has menus that make sense to me


    reasons i got the d90

    I don't use any of those. I shoot with my D80, probably not going to buy a new body for another 2 years.

    I also really like my D80 but I'm waiting for the D90 to be discontinued. The low noise at high ISO is impressive. Hopefully I can get one at a fire sale price.

    It is rumored that owning a Nikon improves one's sex life.

    Here are the top-selling cameras in Japan from January 1,2009 to December 23, 2009;

    2009年、売れたデジタル一眼カメラはコレだ! ユニークなモデルも登場

    The Kiss Digital X3 is the Canon EOS 500D aka Canon EOS T1i--it is the top seller in Japan...the Nikon D90 is #3 this year... #2 is the Kiss Digital X2 aka EOS 450D aka EOS Rebel XSi

    So, you're in the top two! I think there are about an equal number of Rebel and T1i owners as D90 owners here.
