I decided this week to sell my new 40D. The reason was mostly centered around my discovery that my wife (and even myself) want to do more 8x10 prints and perhaps bigger. I had a pic I took of the Chicago L that I cropped and wanted to print as an 8x10. While it turned out ok, it's obvious that it's pixelated. It's not as sharp as I would like... So I decided I needed more megapixels. That leaves me either buying a 5D (really pricey) or a 50D. I planned on buying a 50D this weekend but now I'm reading reviews of all sorts of things including Nikons. So, here's where I'm at. I'm not heavily committed to Canon as I only have a 580EXII speedlite and no additional lenses. I can easily switch platforms now that my camera is sold. I've read the D90 has better color reproduction, better focusing in low light, better AF in general with (more AF points), the ability to increase saturation +4 without PP, etc. There seem to be a lot of little features on the D90, including HD video, that the 50D lacks. I've also considered the D300... But I'm still drawn towards the 50D for it's higher resolution (15.1mp vs. 12mp), familiar controls, supposedly better/more lenses, and a better construction (metal vs. plastic). I hear that the 50D's focus (the same as my 40D) while it only has 9AF points it's just as good as the D90's. The 50D shoots faster (6.3fps) which I do like. What are some of your opinions? Is the D90 noticeably superior to the 50D? If so, in what areas that you see? Should I jump ship and go Nikon or stick with Canon? Is the IQ really superior on the D90 vs. the 50D? Any input would be appreciated!
