i am a very new member and also not a professional in this field but took a lot of photos with my F65 and later Finepix9600. now i want to shift to an entry level DSLR (Just because of the high price of the next level). I read a lot in all the reviews and related forums etc and would like to get the advice of you guys who are experts in this field. My available options (I created this option of course!!!) are Nikon D90 which comes with the 18-105 lens or Canon EOS500D (After the release) without lens and to add a Tamron 18-270 lens with vibration compensation. My price range is limited to around 1700 USD. please give me a good advice to get maximum out of this with a good level of zoom also.
