I am considering purchase of the Canon D500. I am upgrading from a Canon SX1IS. Can anyone offer advice on whether this is a good choice, over the Nikon D5000? Regards Bazzer
I would definitely go for the Canon 500D over the Nikon D5000. This is because the Nikon feels bulky at the back with the fold out screen therefore making it difficult to get your eye to the viewfinder. The Canon also looks better and feels better made. I have recently purchased the 550D and that is superb. Canon offers a much larger range of lenses than Nikon making it easier to find the lens for you.
