hey im new to this site and currently just have a few point n shoots but am looking to buy a digital slr. i currently have no photography experience but am hoping to learn and have ordered some books. im currently looking at 2 cameras: the nikon d5000 and the canon t1i. i went to the store and liked the way the canon felt a lil more then the nikon. unfortunately the nikon wasnt working so i really couldnt mess with it. i was wondering from the members on here what the best camera for a beginner like myself would be and if there are any known problems with either. i remember reading something about something shorting out with the d5000 but am unsure if it is a common problem. thank you for your help in advance its greatly appreciated.
