ok, i'm really new to this so this may not even be apples to apples so to speak. the camera will totally be for personal use. i shoot people, places, action and whatever i happen to see that i think would be worthy of a shot. this will be for hobby of course, but sometimes when i get into hobbies, i get really serious, so i don't want a P&S. i picked both of these because i like the features i've seen on both. they are both 10mp and in the same price range with the 18-55 lens. that being said, which would you choose and why? Thanks.
