I've always been interested in photography and even had a film SLR a number of years ago, although I didn't use it much. I've more recently just used point and shoot digital cameras, but now am looking to step up and make photography more a regular hobby. I want a DSLR, but don't want to spend over $1000. I've been looking at the Nikon D5000 and the Canon T1i and Canon Xsi. I am having trouble deciding though, since they are very similar. I went to the store and tried all of them in my hands, and liked the Nikon's feel. Should that be enough to make me buy it, or should I weigh other factors? There also is a deal on Amazon for the D5000, plus two lens for around $860, which seems like a good price.
