Are you serious?.

If you are looking to buy a camera buy either one and forget this nonsense..

No difference really - all down to the lens, lighting conditions, exposure, your skills as a photographer and what you do in post processing, whether you shoot JPEG or Raw..

Worry about the actual camera last..

If you are looking at DSLR's, all produce high resolution photos. Sharpness depends on the settings. Each manufacturer produces a different look to their photos and this was a major factor for me. Which do you prefer? It would be a good idea not to just limit yourself to 2 cameras. I did not limit myself and bought something that actually suits my photo preferences and the way I shoot..

Have fun ..

This is a useless post. You specify a brand not a camera and there are differences between cameras of the same brand. There are 3 parts of the system not just the body. You also have the lens and the photographer, neither of which is considered in your question..

Addtionally the question is meaningless because it is a too broad and the folks that will give you an answer will generally say Canon if they use Canon or Nikon if they use Nikon..

You might as well ask whether they use Canon or Nikon and count the replys..

How about if I say the Canon XSi or the NIkon D80..

You, the lens, and the conditions will ALWAYS be a far bigger factor than the camera..

Between Nikon and Canon you can't go wrong either way..

Get a Nikon. It make far sharper images when using a sharper lens. Nikons are recommended by almost every Nikonian over Canons. I promise..

Here, let me show you. The top image is made with a Nikon while the bottom is with a Canon that was somewhat edited. Both were taken side by side..

I posted this about 2 weeks ago under a thread for all Newbies to read..

I see 2 or 3 posts a day from folks looking for their first DSLR and want to know should I get a Canon xxx or a Nikon xxx or an Olympus xxx or a Sony xxx. So in an attempt to be proactive I decided I'd put this post up for you to read before you post the question. Now I own an Oly and say that for clarity up front. Also I have put up almost the same statements for many posts so here's to being proactive..

Ok everyone likes their camera. So if you post a I'm choosing between the Nikon XXX and the Sony XXX you will generally get more comments that say get the Nikon because there are more Nikon owners. They may be right they may be wrong, so lets cut to the chase..

The least important thing overall in the system, e.g. photographer, camera body, lens, is the camera body. ALL the DSLRs available today will take excellent images. All of them. So you have one variable which is basically a wash unless you want to count pixels, take pictures in very dark rooms without a flash, or whatever..

So we are left with the photographer and lenses. All the manufacturers make good lenses. Canon and Nikon make the most and there are more 3rd party lenses. And you will often see a posting about the "wide variety" of lenses from Nikon and Canon. But honestly how many lenses do you need? There are 32 lenses available for a 4/3 mount at my last count. I think that will cover all of my requirements with about 28 lenses left over.

All of the manufacturer make good quality lenses. However based on what I have read and experienced in the kit lens area Oly and Pentax have the best kit lens quality. There are so many other lenses that it really comes down to value. Can you get equiv quality lenses at the same prices. Generally the answer again is yes.

So in my opinion Oly/Pentax come out slightly ahead here for the kit lensesPlease note I said slightly. For everything else it's a wash..

That leaves us with the most important part of the system...the photographer. YOU have to decide what is the most comfortable system for you. Generally the Oly/Panasonic will have a lighter body and much lighter lenses. Pentax bodies are weather sealed so if you are going outdoors a good deal you may want to consider that. So many people use Canikons that you could be able to borrow lenses etc. Sony and Oly have built in image stabilization.

Does any of this matter to YOU? I don't know and nobody on these forums can make that decision. Some people like a heavier system. I don't but I don't like a really feather weight either. Are the controls where YOU want them? Does the menu make sense to YOU? Can YOU quickly change settings? How's the view finder? Is the camera comfortable for YOU to hold and control. If your 6'10 and have hands like Shak then you most likely will not be comfortable with a small camera.

The MOST important aspect in taking pictures is the PHOTOGRAPHER and his/her knowledge of his/her tools and his/her comfort in using that tool. DON'T put too much thought into the tool. Painters don't stand around admiring each others brushes. They talk technique. I've seen shots with Point and Shoots that are better then anything I can take with my fancy DSLR because the guy/gal that took them has more understanding of composition and has a better eye for what is interesting and they get the most from their tools..

I'll go one step further. Below is an image that I took with my Olympus. Is the Canon or Nikon sharper then this? No. Keep reading below the image..

Image control:Zoom outZoom 100%Zoom inExpand AllOpen in new window.

Now is the Canon or Nikon sharper then the image below. NO. Keep reading below the image..

Both of these were taken by the same camera with the same lens at the same focal length and by the SAME PERSON. Now the second was cropped more but that isn't the point. If you look at the second you say the Oly 510 with the 70-300 is %*#). You look at the first and you say the Oly 510 with the 70-300 is freakin outstanding..

If you look a hair deeper you quickly discover I (the photographer of both shots) clearly knew what he was doing on the first and didn't have a clue when he took the second. DONT BLAME THE CAMERA!!!.

Now that's funny. However, you are giving info to supposedly a newbie so you should let them know it's the same freakin picture. It would have been better if you said it was a Mark II..

Comment #15

As far as I know a Leica M series is still a camera even if it's not a SLR..

Ranfinders have a different performance envelope than SLR's. WIthin their envelope they exceed the capabilities of SLR. Arguably Leica rangefinders are the ultimate in craft, engineering, and artistry...
