actually, the lenses are the same. No really advantage from the canon if you go with the canon 70-300 over the 55-250mm. As the 70-300 on the canon and nikon are the same. And the kit 18-55 are the same really.

The canon has a better AF system for shooting in low light. Nikon has the better flash system. The T2i is a much better camera then the d5000, and the T1i is better the the d5000. Both have much faster AF system when mounted with the 70-300.

They are not the same. And while they are both very good, the Canon lenses are slightly better.

My point was that the information upon which NJRonbo was basing his or her decision, was in error. Can we agree on that?

If he was comparing the 55-250 against the nikon 70-300, the nikon is better. But the 70-300 against the 70-300, the canon and nikon are almost as good. For pixel peeping the canon is better
