    Default Finally did it I got myself a DSLR

    After much deliberation and research I finally did it I upgraded my bush camera from a canon sx40 to a Nikon D5100 w 18-105mm vr lens. After using it for a couple of weeks, I am very happy with the decision to pull the trigger although the vendor I purchased it from was more than a bit sketchy(didnt look deep enough for their reviews) and will never order through 42nd street photo again. That being said I couldnt be happier with the D5100, after considering myself a canon guy forever I bought a t3i and just didnt like the layout and I ended up returning it and going with the 5100.

    Thanks for all of the advice from you guys.

    Bill

    You know you're a Canon guy at heart, you should have looked at a Canon 60D, I've never liked the feel of the Rebel series, but the 10d-60d all feel pretty good. Although at this point the difference between canon and nikon is negligibl. If I didn't already have some canon lenses I'd have no reason not to make a Nikon my next camera, they're both great.

    Welcome to the Nikon club!Canon makes awesome products,but sometimes its just a matter of preferences,for photos,i always had a nikon,for filming,i prefer canon over any other company who makes camcorders!

    I think both company's offers top of the line products..

    It doesn't matter what system you use, as long as you pick a system and stick with it. A system camera is just that - a complete and total system, and not just a camera. Before you will be able to make the best of that system, you will be investing in some good glass and accessories. The body you start off with is just the doorway into the system, and are in fact one of the most disposable accessories in the entire system. Even your flash can last you through many bodies nevermind your lenses, which should last you for decades if properly handled. All the DSLR systems out there have almost all the same options. If one system has it, you can find a similar alternative for your system as well. So it doesn't matter if you chose Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Olympus, or Sony... they all have their own little strengths and weaknesses and quirks, but are all capable of the same thing.

    Good choice on delving in with a "real" camera. I'm sure you will enjoy it, and we're all excited to see the results you're able to produce with it!
