    Nothing wrong with Nikon at all. The XT is a hot seller. Get last years's model XT for a few hundred less.

    Yeah, i just got my XT for $599 last weekend. I love it. I was thinking about going nikon, but my dad has canon stuff, so thats the route i went. I travel a lot too, so the xt was the perfect size.

    ok.

    Just letting you know that you are eliminating the 2nd most popular dslr company on the market from your choices.

    :werd: Canon or Nikon. The debate is also endless, like Ford vs. Chevy, before you ask which is better. :o

    K10D.

    I held one a few days ago, it's awesome.

    I can't wait to see the high iso shots, but just from camera feel and function, it's a definite competitor.

    At this point, the difference between the quality of the images is minimal. Any halfway decent DSLR will get you good shots if you know how to use it.

    I use a Nikon D80, but I have used the XTi, D200 and 30d, and for anyone except a National Geographic photographer, the only real difference is ergonomics. I prefer the Nikons because I'm used to them, but that's just a preference.

    I'd go for a 20D instead though.

    i would say it depends on what your shotting, every camera has its strengths and weaknesses. So the question is what are you shooting? Sports? Kids? All around stuff? Motorsports? Landscape?

    Also... the way they feel in your hand makes a big difference. I went with the D50 over the Rebel because the rebel felt like crap and the Nikon was niiiice in my hands. Fit perfectly.

    I like the D80 more than XTi also

    I grabbed the two in my hands and def. the Nikon won hands down in "feel" departement.

    on the quality, nikon and canon are top players, they make great cameras and lenses.
