Default still torn between t1i and d90

so i put up a post a while ago trying to decide between the t1i and d90 and ended up buying the t1i...while the video and picture quality are great, i feel like i might have made the wrong choice..the problem is that i wasnt able to try out both cameras at the store...so with a final post i must ask again what should i get???

if you are happy with the video and picture quality, i am not sure exactly what the point of this question is?

the t1i and the d90 are equally capable cameras. there is very little performance difference between the 2 models. you can't go wrong either way. you chose the t1i and its a great camera, you would gain nothing by going to the d90.

keep your camera and learn to use it well.

I faced the same decision, and finally opted for the Nikon D-90. I am really happy with my choice.

The differences between them are minor, the ergonomics probably being the most significant. If you like how your T1i feels, you made the right choice.

If the camera fits your ergo and photographic needs and you are happy with it, you do not need to second guess yourself. If you are unhappy with it then you may second guess yourself.

In allot of areas the two camera compete with each other while canon really design the t1i to go after the d5000. So don't think that the t1i is any less of a camera base on it's price. Give canon credit for give you more in the camera.

You really got a great camera. Enjoy it.

They are both lovely cameras, the 90D is slight step above the T1i but we are not talking anything major but the Canon kit lens is a better one. If you were an avid sports shooter I would take the D90 other than that stick with what you have as it will give you some great results.
