    im looking to up grade to either ther the d90 or the 40d. As of right now im leaning towards the d90 because of the better sensor and more megapixels. I was wondering what one prefored better in low light and shows less noise. Any advice you guys have before i make my final choice? thanks

    You should be comparing the Nikon D90 to the Canon 50D in terms of price and current technology.

    I would go with the D90 but I'm a Nikon fan in general. D90 has the edge on high iso performance although the 40d and 50d are pretty good in that respect as well. I prefer the button/menu layout of the D90 but that's a personal preference. Which one feels better to you?> the Nikon or Canon? On cameras that are pretty close in performance the usability can be more important than anything else. If you don't like how the camera handles (I don't like the layout of Canon) then it could affect the amount of shooting you do.

    *bump*

    D90 -vs- 40D EOS

    Maybe its better off comparing the 50D but for those who want to do that, please start another thread :p

    The FPS of the 40D seems to be great for birding.
