View Full Version : Which DSLR - Nikon D40 vs Canon 350D

I'm looking to buy a nice SLR camera and I'm torn between the Nikon D40 and Canon 350D. I'll probably buy 2nd hand off ebay or something and get a nice kit with a few lenses. Does anyone own either camera or does anyone have any recommendations. I'm a n00b photographer so I'm swinging toward the D40 as I've heard it's easier to use.

I personally own the Canon 400D/Rebel xTi and I love it. Differences I know of. Nikon 40D doesn't have a built in auto-focus, meaning you have to buy special lenses that have AF on them. The Canon 400D does have AF built into the body.

Both are very good brands. Nikon D40 (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond40/)
