A&P D80 or XTi?

    I'm stuck in between and not sure which route to go. I do like the feel of the D80 a little more, feels like an overall better built camera. Overall I seem to favor towards canon's image quality/colors and a little larger lens selection.

    I can definitely find XTi's cheaper than the D80, so that's another plus.

    What's your input? I don't have any lenses, so I'd be starting from scratch.

    D80

    Though the quality from either camera will prob. be the same (put two pics of the same thing taken with both cameras and I doubt youd be able to tell the difference). Pick one, and don't look back cause you'll prob. be happy with either one.

    d80 is a step up from the xti. the comparable nikon to the xti is the d40x. the comparable canon to the d40 is the 30d

    Uhh. I think you have that wrong. 30D is a step above all those cameras...the D40 & D40X have no real competitor. The XTi is a direct competitor to the D80.

    Neither ..Ive shot with the D80 @ work and for all of those Nikon fans .. This has some of the weirdest ass colors and noise problems I've ever seen.

    I'm am biased I agree but , even @ 200% in photoshop shooting on FINE full reso the image looked completely different than my 5 or even 30D . Maybe Its a bad copy but , I wasn't pleased . Just as I wasnt using the 40x and 40 . I have played around with the D200 on another note and it seemed to be just fine : )

    go to flickr and look at pictures taken with each camera. you will notice that its not the camera that makes the pictures, its the photographer.

    I'm a canon user but the D80 feels a lot better built than the XTI, either that or a 30D
