I've probably posted this into the wrong forum, but the most people were here in this category and I thought I might have a better chance of getting my question answered , quickly. I've been into photography for a while. My Minolta 700si is like brand new still to this day. Lord, the money I put out on this camera with all the glass. Sadly the day has come that I must move to digital and find a buyer for my current equipment. My question here is: I've decided on either the Nikon d5000, or the Canon t1i. I'm on the fence between the two and had hoped someone might give me good advice. I'm more partial to the Nikon but that doesn't mean it will be a better choice. Primary use : Landscape photography, Ebay stuff, and general usage, pets and such, and some sports photography. I would appreciate assistance from the photo Gods, quickly, as I intend to make a purchase within the next 12 hours. thank you guys in advance.
