    not quite. but anyway, because of the vast differences between canon and nikon, you really NEED both if you want to get any good shots ever. :rolleyes:

    They're not really out yet.

    Wait till they post noise levels from both sensors. Higher pixel density usually is a bad thing. You might actually be better off picking up a 350D, 20D, or D70 depending on how the 400D and D80 fare.

    but then you have to compare a 400d file reduced to 8mp to a 350d file to see the real difference in noise

    True, but when the Sony 828 was announced, everyone was like OMG8MP!!!!!!111one. Plus it had an RGBE CCD vs. RGBG, so color reproduction was supposed to be SUPERB.

    Then when it came out the colors were indeed awesome, but we were all shocked to see the noise level. You had to resize it down to 5MP size for it to be decent, and then it was pretty much indistinguishable from the 707/717; no reason to "upgrade" anyway.

    Wait and see. Like they say in the movies, "let's not start sucking each others' dicks yet, gentlemen." :nono:
