The K-x has a 4.7fps continuous shooting rate (ok, for a max of 16 frames, or for 3.4 sec.), while the T1i has 3.4fps.

The noise performance of the K-x is better than pretty much all of those cameras mentioned.

However, the Pentax Kx is very good throught ISO 3200 and even ISO 6400 will do in a pinch. Dollar for dollar, the Kx offers a whole lot of bang for the buck.

Actually it has a acceptable IQ at 12800iso also. It is a bit better then my T1i at 12800iso.

Yeah, the Fry's in clear lake didn't have the KX last time I was there. I will call them again though to make sure. I think I am fairly settled on the Nikon, I just like the more stable body, but if I get my hands on the Kx and like it I wouldn't hesitate on buying it either. At this point I've pretty much ruled out the T1i since the D90 beats it at not that much more expensive, and the T2i doesn't make much sense as video in this camera is not a priority.

I would not say beat the T1i, it has more feature. Low light goes to the canon, burst rate goes to the nikon, AF system is a draw. HD is a canon by a bit, IQ is a draw, both are plastic bodies not metal. LCD is a draw at 3 inch and high res. With the T1i a 2 lens kit is about 1000 dollars, the nikon is about 1200-1300. So price is not as close, as you can get 2 lens that cover allot more range then one lens. So it is a tight race between the two, with the nikon edging out the T1i by a nose.

Both D90 is a excellent camera just as the T1i. It is a really hard choice, and the T2i really make it a tight race with the d90.

Yes, they are both excellent cameras, just most of the head to head reviews comparing both cameras that I read gave the Nikon the advantage.

Between the d90 and the T1i the d90 does have an edge. But you need to also consider that the t1i was design to go after the d5000 in the entry level class. The D90 is in the prosumer tier like the 50D. The T2i really blurs that line. That is why the canon with 2 lenses is about 250-300 dollars less then the d90 with 2 lenses. D90 vs 50D comparing prosumer to prosumer.

But you would be biased, because you are a Canon shooter!!!!!
