    I would love to find a website that has the same exact scene with shots from each (not just for the two cams you listed though) to compare.. lol

    Honestly, I think it would be pretty hard to tell the difference...

    I have seen a couple of side by side pictures but 5 at the most. I also think that thats the best review/comparison there could be. why is there not more ?

    My friend and I were in your shoes about 2 years ago. we were both looking at an entry model DSLR. He got the Rebel and I went one up and got the Cannon 40D. Today, I'm looking to get the MarkII and his rebel is collecting dust. Quality wise, the 40D is built better with better materials. It feels solid in my hands and although they have the same sensor(I think) the pictures from the 40D come out noticeably better. Also the 40D gives you room to grow where as the rebel seems to be a point-and-shoot with the option to change lenses(IMHO). And for me, the look and feel of the 40D gives me more confidence to go out and take pictures because it looks like a professional camera. So my recommendation is to go to the $1,500 price point. but if your comparing the T1i and D5000, your splitting hairs and your never going get a good answer. You need to look at price points and look toward the future to decide if your going be a Cannon or a Nikon person. Your investment is not in the body but in the lenses. If your just going to take pictures of your kids and family and you are not really looking to upgrade, then the sub $1000 cameras are fine. But if your looking to shoot art, then look at the cameras in the mid $1000. You will out grow the rebel very quickly.

    Depends on which pic.. that first pic I was so sure the D5000 looked better.. but in some of the others I really preferred the T1i.

    I found this interesting..

    Flickr: Camera Finder

    You can select a camera and look through photos taken with that particular camera!
     
  12. Go to a store, figure out how they feel and how you like the controls. Include Sony in the comparison. Buy the one you like best.
