    Default nikon v sony

    hi i know it bit similar to my other post but just want to get my choice spot on as it involves money lol

    Sony have built in image stabilizer in the body
    were as Nikon have there is in the lens what is better as to buying extras lenses

    who will be cheapest over the long run with out loosing quality

    say a Sony 55 by 200 or 55 by 300 or 18 by 200
    and same for Nikon if some one could give me some example prices i have looked but there that many with that many different numbers after the lens iam a bit confused with it all
    so could some one brake down just a few lenses for me to help me make my mind a bit better

    with the Nikon to have vr on the lens as well thanks
