Hi,
I'm about to buy a new DSLRcamera and still did not decide should I buy Nikon D50 or Canon eos 350d.
For sure I want to buy portrait lens and want to ask can I attach
this lens on both camera or Nikon lens are only for Nikon and Canon only for Canon.

* Nikon AF 50 mm f1.8
* Canon AF Prime 50mm f1.8

Is there a differance in quality or performance...which are sharper

Thanks
Zak

Nikon & Canon use different lens mounts you cannot mount lenses for one on the other.

Both Nikon's and Canon's 50mm prime are widely regarded as the best lens bargain out there, and should be in every photographers bag. I don't know that one is better than the other, and you wouldn't go wrong choosing either one. It's really impossible to compare cameras and lenses unless they are used to make the same shot, under the same conditions by the same photographer. There are just too many variable to try to compare and make a decision based on dissimiliar shots taken by different people.

Thanks,I just was really wandering about the talks that I've heard and some say that canon images are not that sharp as NIkon's.

In some other forums they explained that the reason is Canon inside camera procceeding works that way to leave a user possibilities for postproceeding and adjust as needed.

Very important thing is to know that you can not use one lens for both models.

Thanks

You could get a d50 and a 50 1.8 for what the 350d cost.

The last session in botanical garden D70+nikkor50/1.8 (except wide angle).

Bad light - clowdy weather, no time (groups went one by one every 5 min), no tripod of course... still something.

fyi... i've read that since nikon has a smaller lens mount, there is a converter to attach nikon lenses to a canon mount. i will be looking into this. i have both a 20d and a d200. too bad canon mounts are larger.i think if this conververter works well, it willsave me a whole lotta bucks in duplicating lenses.
