Re: Nikon d40x vs. Canon Rebel xTi

manual focusing is slow and lame and at further distances on an entry level DSLR with poor magnification will yield soft slightly OOF photos

Ranges from $200 all the way up to $8000 and possibly higher.

Re: Nikon d40x vs. Canon Rebel xTi

i was debating between the d40 and the xti before i bought my xti. personally, i think that the d40, d40x, and d60 all feel cheap. they also feel really small even compared to the xs. that was what sold me on the xti. the d40 is really small or at least it didnt feel comfortable in my hands (and im not a big guy, 5'7&quot not having an autofocus motor built into the camera is a negative to me as well since you limited to what lenses you can buy for it. im not biased at all and i love my friends d50 and d90. nikons are great, but for what you're looking for, my opinion is to go canon.

Re: Nikon d40x vs. Canon Rebel xTi

That is basically my opinion as well. If you are a 'soccer mom' and just want something better then a point and shot and never going to use more then the lens that the camera came with or anything at all 'advanced' then the D40, D40x and D60 are all good, cheap dSLRs. If you are going to get in to photography, then you want the Rebel as the basic introductory camera. If you want a step up from that then the Nikon D90, etc is a better camera. A good inexpensive 'prosumer' or advanced amateur camera is the Canon 30/40/50D. If you want the best APS-c sensor 'pro' level dSLR then the Nikon D200/D300 is the best. If you want super high ISO capability then the D700/D3 is the best, if you want the best high resolution pro dSLR then the 5D MkII or 1Ds MkIII is the best (or possibly the Sony A900). The Nikon D3x...well it just ain't worth the asking price for what you get (arguably the D3 and 1Ds MkIII isn't either with the A900, D700 and 5D MkII on the market, but they (D3/1Ds MkIII) aren't nearly as astronomical as the D3x for what you get).

Re: Nikon d40x vs. Canon Rebel xTi

from having nikon dslr experience, i think canon beats nikon by alot more.
photos from canon are way more crisp than canon, and on the nikon d60 i previously owned, it only had 3 focus points versus the 9 focus points on my canon

I disagree. To each their own. At the end, it is up to the photographer to capture the moment with the right time and light.

And I personally only use the center focus point to focus then recompose. Only time that wouldn't quite work is sports but I don't shoot spots.
