Nikon D5000 , A New DSLR Camera

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!.

        @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.
