Whether this scale is perfectly valid or not can be argued by the scientifically minded here, just as the finer points of Nikon vs Canon have been argued/discussed. In any case, this scale offers a frame of reference for comparison. Compare the D90 to the 50D... yada, yada, yada. However, compare any of the DSLR's to the "good" point and shoots included on the list and you soon see that no matter which of the two you recommend, if your friend is coming from point and shoot, he'll be impressed by his new DSLR, whatever he gets.

Go a step further and let him choose for himself later by telling him to get a re-certified D40x paired with a Sigma 18-125 OS or some similar lens for about $575 US total and then spend the difference on a real video camera. Later after learning what's up with it all, he can decide what to do for himself??
