This will be my first DSLR camera however, I've been using my rebel xti for 6+months and I've also played with my other friends D80 pretty extensively as well.
i've been deliberating over which one few days. I dont plan to make my purchase until next month (when I have more saved up), but it's been on my mind a lot lately. i've been weighing the pros and cons and still can decide. I think the t1i would have slighlty better image quality and do better in low light and have better HD video capabilities. however, i think the UI system in the nikon is way better than the new UI they put in the t1i. Plus i think having the swivel lcd adds more versatility.
my plan is to just buy the body and accessories together. Then just buy a lens separate. I'm looking to buy just one lens to start at it'll either be 18-105 VR/IS or 18-135 VR/IS depending on body i decide to go with. I'm looking to SPEND NO MORE THAN A GRAND for TOTAL for everything.
the other alternative option is: just wait another moth save up more and buy a D90.
Thanks for the Advice.
