    About Nikon D50!!!

    It seems we are gonna see sample images of the D50 in this site soon since the D50 has been already added to the "upcoming reviews list" / however in the meantime I suggest checking out these interesting side by side comparisons:

    D50 japanese review
    http://dc.watch.impress.co.jp/cda/re...6/06/1651.html

    XT japanese review
    http://dc.watch.impress.co.jp/cda/re...4/26/1401.html

    The new Nikon D50 is a winner, very low noise from Iso 200 to 1600 (better even than the XT) also the AWB is excellent and the image quality is superb!!! BRAVO NIKON!!!

    Regards,

    I wish this camera would have been out as well as the D70s back when I was deciding on which camera to purchase... I pretty much was looking at the XT and the D70...I nearly went with the D70 but didn't want to purchase a camera a month or so before the upgrade came out and there were other factors involved too... I am happy with the XT, but I am eagerly awaiting the D50 reviews and sample images

    Methinks the D50 will outshine the D70 and D70s in many ways. A very nice implementation by Nikon. But then so was the D70 when it came out.

    Probably the last new Nikon dSLR's using a CCD.

    First I want to say that I am not pro Canon as some people may realize who frequent these forums, but I would not say that I am anti Canon or a Nikon fanatic either.

    That said, I don't believe that you come to a knowledgeable conclusion about either camera from a few test shots from "any" camera review site. You need to hold/shoot/compare your own photos from any camera you want to purchase. For every review that is pro Canon, I'm sure that you will find another that is pro Nikon. I'm sure that both cameras will be able to produce excellent photos. Anyone that says otherwise, in my opinion at least, is probably biased towards the camera they say is better.

    I agree with Ray. You HAVE to use both to know what you want. IMO, menus and flash=Nikon. Final output for large print=Canon.

    I own the following D100, 1D & 1Ds. I had the D2h and returned it. I am sure the D70(s) and D2x are great and so are the MKII's.

    You need to make a list of wants and needs and see who (N or C) fits the bill.....err should I say pays the bill(s)

    Each one has their strengths and weaknesses. Before an assigment, I grab either the N or C depending on what is needed by the client.

    Sure, I also think so. I know either XT or D50 are excellent cameras and "my verdict" is based on the links I left above......probably I should have said the new D50 kit lens is better than the XT kit / or maybe the Nikon D50 "jpg" beats the XT jpg. /// what Im sure is that the D50 is really less noisy than the D70 and even than the XT (just a bit / shadows above all)

    thats all, dont get me wrong Im just a bit excited because of the great D50 image quality....and Its quite a bit sure it is gonna be my next camera.

    Regards,
    I looked at the ISO 1600 comparisons with the Nikon's vs XT (funny the 20D wasn't included) and unless my eyes are going bad or your seeing something I'm not ... the XT sample images depict less noise than both the Nikon's.
