Apr 15, 2009 by     16 Comments    Posted under: Digital Photography

Nikon has just introduced their new line of DSLR camera, I am a Canon DSLR user and I don’t have that much of information regarding Nikon, But my office mates told me that Nikon is also a Good buy. In Saudi Arabia most of the photographers are Canon User and based on my observation in Philippines it is more on Canon.

After Canon unveiled Canon 500D Nikon also introduced this Nikon D5000. So it is a matter of competition but whos’s better ?

  • Ahhh another toy for shutterbugs. Personally, when I bought my D700, I told myself that the next time I buy a new one or upgrade to a higher model, the specifications should really amaze me or make me drool before I think of buying it LOL!.

    • @Rob Angeles,
      A new toy but an expensive one :).. Di ko pinagsisihan ang pagbili ng DSLR camera.. although the lens price is sometime really high

      • @Dexter, I agree! But I maintain just a few lens and since I have 2 Nikon DSL, I make sure it mounts to all LOL! Para tipid. 18-200, 50mm, wide angle, lens baby, macro and pang malayuan. Mabigat din kasi minsan sa bag.

      • @Rob Angeles,
        18-200 is I believe a great walk around lens. I also have 50 mm and it is perfect for portrait shots
