    is it true that nikon is more sharp than canon in terms of focus?

    Both Nikon and Canon have lenses that are pretty much equivalent to each other (in terms of sharpness, they can be really close). You will see many canon vs. nikon debates around here (just do a search) but in the end I think they're both pretty equal. As with anything they'll have their pros and cons but that's really a personal decision and not something we can say definitively one way or another that one is better.

    If you are planning to get a 50mm prime lens and do not want to spend too much money. Go with the Canon. Otherwise, you are back to square one. Manual Focus with 50mm F/1.8 on Nikon D5000. You will have to buy the Nikkor AF-S 50mm F/1.4 in order for the AF to work since D5000 do not have the in-body focus motor to AF the older 50mm F/1.8 AF lens.

    just try them both and see which one feels better in your hand

    decide before this becomes a canon vs. nikon thread
