Up until recently, I was the proud owner of a Canon Rebel XS. It got stolen a few weeks ago and I was very sad but have since moved on... I'm now in the market for a new camera! I was very happy with Canon because on the low end range, they seem to beat Nikon to me (cheaper lenses which don't require the lens motor, what seems to be better ISO performance, more comfortable ergonomics, etc.) However I haven't ruled Nikon out of the picture mainly because of the color their images have... they seem to be much more vibrant and really POP. Is it the default settings that are different or something else?? Luckily, I never got a chance to invest in any glass so I'm not tied to Canon yet. I also don't intend for this to be a Canon vs Nikon thread, just wondering about the color issues, thanks.
