    Right now I have the Nikon D3000 and I see that Samy's is having a no tax sale on the Canon T1i for $700. I found a buyer for my current camera at $550, so is it worth the extra $150 to upgrade? My photographer friends said its not worth, I just want to get you guys $.02 on it.

    Upgrade your graphic card first,since you use for gaming.If you are not low on cash,then go for both of it.

    don't do it. first of all why would you "upgrade" to another entry level camera? and why would you switch to canon?. you could buy a nikon body only, keep your lens(es) and also buy a better lens while you're at it.

    Well, I see on your signature you dont have any other lenses. If you do want to go to the dark side (Canon :) ), this is the right time to do it :).


    GO CANON!

    I agree that it is somewhat of a lateral move (maybe a 1/2 step up). Not sure what you want to spend, but I just bought my son the D90 with 70-300VR lens for $1,109 new at Adorama.

    Agree, no need for another entry level camera, go for the upgrade on lens.

    DONT DO IT!!!! :x

    Depending on what you shoot most of the time, you might be better off with an off camera flash rather than another lens.
