Default Recommendations: Nikon D100 or Canon 10D?


I'm about to purchase either of the two. What is most important for me: #1 Fast, Accurate Auto Focus in all light, especially low light; #2) Not having to go into Photoshop for sharpening images unless they are very special images for printing/framing; #3) Availability of high quality lenses (which has best quality?). Help!

WHEW!!!!!! Thats a tough question Joe. I don't know if I'm going to sway your decision or not, but here it goes. Both cameras are excellent choices. Both Nikon & Canon have excellent lenses also. IMHO it's a ten point toss up. Your not going to go wrong with either camera. Personally, I own the D100 and love it. The reason I went with the Nikon is because I already had the lenses from my film SLR. The one thing I'm finding in my area and most others on this board can vouch for it, the Canon 10d is a hard camera to come by whereas the Nikon is readily available.
Don't know if I helped you out any Joe, but glad I give my opinion! The best of luck with whichever camera you purchase!!!!

I agree with Chrisr, both are good cameras.

Joe Mayer, the general philosophy here is that if you own equipment that would work either camera, you should go that way.

What type of photography are you planning on doing with the camera? Each system has slight advantages in different areas. Note that I say system, because you should view the entire package (lenses, body, flash, TCs, macro,...) when going into the SLR world.
