Ok so I've been doing lots of reading around this forum, other forums and magazine reviews over the past few months all building up to now to try and decide what DSLR I would like to invest in. I have thus narrowed my options down to the following: - Canon Rebel XSi Canon 40D Nikon D80 Nikon D90 Now I've seen endless threads on this forum that end up being a Canon vs Nikon fanboy flame war and that is what I am trying to avoid here. A lot of you guys have great knowledge and experience with the above cameras so I'd like your insight. From what I've read, the D90 has superb image quality, sharpness and low light performance, my only issue with it is the price and the possibility that Nikon in other countries won't honor my warranty if I migrate (a friend who lived in NY, bought his D80 there and moved to Canada said Nikon Canada wouldn't service his D80 when he had issues with the sensor) which I may do within a year or two. The XSi has great quality too but when shooting in JPG the images are noticeably softened and this bugs me as I really like my images to be sharp but the pricepoint is a lot nicer than the D90 plus Canon's support seems to be internationally consistent. The D80 is like a D90 with less features and older technology but still excellent and at a decent price point and the 40D seems to be an excellent camera as well that doesn't suffer from the issues that the XSi does but its in the D90 price vicinity. Would you guys say that good glass is priced in the same range regardless of Canon or Nikon or is good Canon glass cheaper than good Nikon glass? Any help or wisdom offered is more than welcome, thanks so much for reading this long post, I truly appreciate it.
