I was looking around and checking for a not too expensive camera but a good reflex one,so I found out some of those articles: a Canon 1000D,Canon 450D,Canon 500D (althoguh it's not a really "entry level"),Nikon D60,Nikon D90 even the Nikon D5000 (the new one)...so I read about the specifications of everyone of them but still not sure which one I should buy...so asking if someone has bought or tried one of them...thank you all!
Just thought of something else I should mention about the 1000D. If you want to shoot sports or anything where you need to take fast sequences of shots then 1000D not for you. Only 1.5fps. Okay for landscapes, still life, etc but misses too much action. Definitely check the specs of all the cameras you are looking at to make sure they can cope with what you want to shoot. I like the sounds of the specs for the new 7D myself.
I have a Canon 1000D, it's all I could afford at the time. I used the extra $500 it would have cost me for the 500D to put towards my first "L" lens, the 70-200 f4 L. It meant that I could have some decent glass earlier instead of being stuck with just the kit lenses. I don't know anything about the Nikon range so I can't really comment on them. I've always understood that if you're on a tight budget you're better going for the cheaper body and spending the money on the good glass to start with and then get a better body later. JMO. Cheers :0)
if you go nikon and can afford a D90 do that if not go D80. I personally have a D60 and have a D300s that I use for work and keep kicking myself for getting the D60. Its not a bad camera but there is not a built in auto focus gear so you have to either buy the more expensive lenses with built in motors or do 100% manual focus on most lenses.
