I'm in the market for a good DSLR and I'm considering the Canon 50D or the\nNikon D90 because they're priced similarly. The Nikon is a bit cheaper\nwhich is nice but the 50D has certain advantages in its metal vs more\nplastic housing, the CF vs SD memory cards, obviously a higher density CCD\nand other items. Personally I like the feel of the D90 over the 50D and\nthat is going a long way in my thinking. I don't know if I really need the\nextra 3MP of the 50D. I'm just an avid amatuer photographer (landscapes,\ncityscapes, some sports shots but not many, nature shots). Sure I'll do\nsome cropping but I just don't know what to get. The way the Nikon felt in\nmy hands is important to me and I'm also concerned with the added noise at\nhigher ISOs of the 50D. So let me ask. Do you 50D owners really like the\nway the camera feels or is it something you just made yourself get used to?\nFor me the shutter button location didn't feel as good as the Nikon and I\ndon't like the on/off switch location on the 50D. Also, has the higher\nnoise of the 50D been an issue with you?\n\nThanks and I'm not bashing the 50D. I think its a great camera and I might\neven own one sometime soon. I'm just in the decision-making stage and\nlooking for some input from those who actually have the camera or even\nexperienced with the D90. Yes, I've read many dozens of reviews and of\ncourse there are +/- for each camera.
