Re: D90 vs. Canon 500D Which one?

Spoken as real Nikon fanboy. I owed both D90 and XSI. Both are very good. The XSI body is improved over the old rebel and see nothing wrong with it. I perfer Canons IQ over Nikon. I also like Canons metering over Nikons Matrix metering. 500Ds video is way better. IMO the 500D should compete with the D90 fairly. Both have there pluses and really you cant go wrong with either.

Got to love people that have no idea what there talking about. They listen to internet chatter and beleive they know it all. I own a 50D. Whats wrong with there sensor? 50D is the best IQ camera I have owned yet. You know what its so nice to have ISO 100 instead of the noisey D300 at ISO 200.

If the 500D is targeted at the D90, it's going to fall flat on it's
tail unless it's at least a couple hundred bucks cheaper. Even if
the D500 has equal image quality as the D90 (which is doubtful, since
it uses the 50D's sensor), it's focusing performance will likely be
inferior, and it's a given that it's build and ergonomics will fall
well short of the D90.

If they wanted to target the D90, they should have first started by
changing the Rebel's terrible body design.

500D is targeted at the D90. That is for sure. As Canon said the 500D
is not replacing the 450D.

these two are in different categories. I think - wait for 500D review
to understand the compromise.
