I was thinking of buying the Nikon D50 but after looking around I find that I can get the Canon 10D almost the same price just a little bit higher. So what do you think is it better to get the 2003 Canon 10D or go with the new Nikon D50 ?

I'm thinking the same thing (I'm leanig towards the 10D because it comes with Photoshop elements), where are you looking.

actually here in Israel, but its an older cam so I haven't decided yet but the Pentax *ist ds sound very nice, great features and SMALLEST SIZE and slso very well build, but you are locked to pentax lenses, so if you decide to upgrade to Nikon or Canon you will need to buy new lenses. but I want my camera to be small and not large.

What is your opinion, I can see that we can be partners for decision becuase both of us are searching for new DSLR cameras, BTW what do you think of the Olympus E series ??

Regards,

Idan

BTW The Nikon D50 seems the best option: Great battery life, Good build quality, great images, nice lens and of course GREAT price !

While your comparing a more advanced to a more amature camera, the 10d is older and probably less responsive (according to the specs, at least) when it comes to startup time, reviewing pictures, etc.

I'm considering the Nikon D50 and the 10D also. The Pentax *ist is a nice camera but I like the bigger, stonger feeling cameras(my old camera weighed about 20ounces). But I'm leaning toards the 10D but I plan on going to a local photo store and hold all of them. But I will still need to buy new lenses for which ever one I pick.:sad:
