Hey guys.

Looking to buy my first DSLR, after having a regular compact digital camera for a while now.

I have a budget of around 500, and after looking around for a while, and at What Digital Camera's reviews, I think it's between the Canon EOS 500D and the Nikon D5000 - But feel free to suggest anything you think would be better.

Please tell me which you think would be better and why!

Thanks guys!
