Default Nikon D-100 (or) Canon EOS D-60??

Greetings,

I'm in the market for one of these digital SLR beauties...just one...though I'd love to own both of them.

So how does the Canon and the Nikon stack up against each other?

What about their comparative interchangeable lenses and accessories?

My specialities include: the many facets of nature (from macro to landscape), "time capsule" scenes (how it looked when), still lifes, some people stuff, etc.

Lastly, what's the latest on availibility and waiting times in NYC (Manhattan)?

Many thanks.

M i k e

I brought the D100 because I have a lot of Nikon lenses. I've found the photo straight out from D60 is more faithful in color than the D100. D100 needs some fine tuning to get the best result. I found the hand grip of D60 is more suitable to big hands.

Lenses and accessories are not interchangeable.

I have post some other after-use comments in "Digital camera-Nikon" column of this forum.

Another camera of choice is the Fuji S2 Pro. It aslo has a Nikon body and it recent test report in the Web looks very favorable.

D100 is smaller and lighter than the other two cameras and everything else is fine.

If I did not have all that Nikon lenses, I will buy D60. May be!

Michael

They're both great digicams for the reasonable price range. You can take almost any type of picture with both, if you already invest your lens and accesories in one other the other, then the answer is obviously. One debate issue on the CCD censor of the Nikon over the CMOS sensor of the Canon, which one is better? On the current issue of Popular Photography magazine (sep, D100 test), the writer concluded that the CCD is so far superior than the CMOS in low light. Cheers...

I bought the D100 and am very pleased. Let's face it at this sort of price they should all be pretty good. Any criticisms seem like nit picking to me.

I also purchased the Nikon D100 and am extremely pleased. I traded in my Canon 1n with 5 Canon lenses for the Nikon D100. No complaints!

Default I chose D100

i just made this decision. the D100 just felt better in my hands and seemed a bit more intuitive in its controls. I prefer the way the D100 lets you review the picture you took and zoom in on any area of the photo. The one hesitation was I liked the 70-300 Image Stabilization lens that Canon sells for around $400-500. Nikon doesn't have a competitive lens with IS in that price range. Also, the D100 was $200 less. the reviews all seemed to indicate a slight advantage in low light focusing also.

Better AF in low light, and higher ISO options. I chose the D100. The D60 is still a great camera though. If you don't have any lenses for either brand, it is a tough decision.
