Lost in DSLR entry-level Funhouse
Apr 17, 2009

Trying Canon 1000D with 18-55 IS kit lens. Operates fine, light, easy to handle, fairly quick. Pix seem surprisingly soft no matter which of stock settings (Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Faithful, etc.).

Used to have Nikon D40 with 18-55 and 55-200 VR. Loved it. Sold it (probably a mistake).

Now have a friend's Nikon D60 with 18-55 VR to compare with Canon 1000D. Well, tomorrow I will have.

Keeping expense to minimum and looking for best IQ for walk around shooting, does the D60 compare as similar to D40 or lacking the D40's "look & feel," which is what I've been told, and what i think I've sen myself in other's photos.

How do both cameras compare with Canon 1000D, if you have experience with that one?

Thanks.
