Decision Time: Rebel XTi or Nikon 40Dx
by wbb56 - 1/2/08 7:45 AM
After reading and reading--and the reading some more, I've narrowed my dSLR choices to the Canon XTi & the Nikon 40Dx. Now I need help, suggestions, recommendations, etc..
I have never owned a Nikon camera product--always Canon, Minolta, Fuji, or Pentax. I currently own a Fuji F30 & a Canon S3IS. I also have an old Canon EOS Elan II with the following lenses: Canon EF 28-80mm 1:3.5-5.6 & Canon EF 75-300mm 1:4-5.6 (if I read correctly these will work with the XTi--the question is how well--and is this enough of a difference make to choose the Canon over the Nikon).
The photos I take are varied-- lots of shots of my beautiful 1 year old daughter inside and out, rarely posed--and my athletic 15 year old son--basketball, snowboarding, golf, tennis, etc.. So the camera needs to be versatile..
Thanks very much in advance!
