    I prefer the Rebel. My girlfriend prefers her Nikon. We're both photographers. She attends Brooks College of Photography. You really can't go wrong with either.

    This will give you some good information on both.

    One stop research, this guy is great and has helped me many times in the past find cameras for myself and my family.

    Canon has taken over the Digital Market. I linked an International Cinematographers Guild article the last time this subject came up and every still photographer interviewed recommended Canon over Nikon. Even the one who shoots all Nikon.

    Thanks for all the helpful suggestions and links to great resources. I don't know if I'm any closer to making a decision on where to go, but thanks all the same.

    All DSLR's are capable of taking great pictures. You need to go to the store and fondle a few. The one that feels the best in your hands is the one that you want. No review will tell you that.

    Both Canon and Nikon have excellent bodies and a wide range of lenses. Don't overlook Pentax and Sony; there is a lot to be said for in-body stabilization.

    One other thing which can limit you is the lens, which is far more important than the body; people moving from P&S cameras usually don't realize this. If you plan to take good photos with your DSLR, plan to spend some money on some good lenses, rather than sticking with the crappy kit lens. A DSLR without good glass is pointless, other than impressing the neighbors; you would be better off with a point-and-shoot.

    Cant go wrong with a Nikon D80 and the 70-300mm VR2 lens.

    Santiclaws is 100% correct. The bodies are basicaly the same. Spend your money on glass.

    I always go to dpreview.com before making any digital camera or accessory purchase. They do VERY in depth professional quality reviews complete with scientific testing and sample photos. They show you the results of the test not just talk about it. You can also view every screen on the control system. There is also a forum where you can ask your question there. They have educational/technique articles and its all free.

    Here is a link to a side-by-side comparison of the tech specs for the two cameras in question:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/comp...n_d80&show=all

    But you should check out the reviews of each of the cameras, they will either make your decision easy or they will confuse the hell out of you. They also list current pricing comparisons at some of the online stores. In the reviews they make comparisons between these models.

    All said, I agree with the other comment that you have to go touch them. That is when you will know which one to get. I would probably buy from Costco, I think they have a liberal return policy.

    I have the Rebel xt. and LOVE it!!
    Its fun and easy to use.. Enjoy it!

    also... the best part of getting into the Cannon line is that you can interchange your lenses.
