    so i recently sold my camera and am moving to a new one. I have pretty much settled on the $780 maximum budget for a body. i am really interested in the Nikon D90 which you can get for 780 for the body at adorama. then i plan on getting a nifty fifty because its affordable right now for me and i do alot of bokeh and portraits.

    i was also thinking of an equivalent canon body for similar price ( maybe T2i, but its $850, pushes my budget alot). I have used my friends XSi alot so i am pretty familiar with canon. I have never used nikon but i hear tons of good things about it and the D90. part of my problem now is seeing which camera feels better in my hands etc.

    Does anyone know any stores around new york city that might have these cameras to test? i really cant wait to get a new camera! i am cameraless and its driving me crazy, i also have people who want headshots.

    P.S> Is there a canon equivalent to the 780 price of d90 or somewhere close to that?

    B&H has the largest showroom/try it out location.

    BEWARE:
    If you are limited in funds do not bring a credit card...bring cash. The store is like a candy store for children...;):mrgreen:

    Bokeh and shallow depth-of-field (DOF) are not the same thing. ;)
