I went and looked at some cameras today. Here's what I saw. Circuit city (going out of business in my city) had a Nikon D90 with a 18mm-300mm lens for 975. I thought it was a steal. If I hadn't been just under that in the bank account, I would have ran home with it. I also looked in another store at some Canons. I would consider a Canon as well, but not a Sony. So, Canon seemed to be more affordable for basically the same 'package'. So here's my question to those of you who have been through both Nikon and Canon? Both were very comfortable to use, very nice to handle and felt very natural. I honestly felt Nikon felt more natural, but Canon was easier to make adjustments for manual settings. But the difference was minute. The image quality was apparently the same and both had the same features.. Canon XSi v. Nikon D90 v. another type of Canon that i didn't write down. The price ranges vary - but Nikon generally seemed more expensive for what you were getting. Thoughts?
