Have you decided or still debating??

From my stand point ... I have shot with Canon's, Nikon's and Sony's ... and these days all of the newer DSLRs are great. Canon and Nikon have some great glass. And that really is where the power lies in SLRs. Is the glass. Sony has their glass created by Zeiss and Nikon at the moment.

Choosing a DSLR depends really on what you are wanting to do. Mainly. Portraits, look for camera with great color range and get a lens that is usually a fixed lens (non-zoom). Like the 50 1.4/1.8 or 85 1.4/1.8. On both Nikon and Canon versions, those fix lenses are awesome. The 1.4 takes a bit of getting use too though.

If you are wanting a sport shooter, look for a camera that has 3D or continuous follow focus and shooting. With at least 6 frame/sec shoot burst. Then get a good zoom. Like a 70-200 2.8 or a 80-300 4.5.

Anyways, aside from all of the tech talk. Just decide on what you want to do with your DSLR and you will find the right camera for ya. I have 3 different occassions. And it did take me moment to get these. Just bought one at a time for what I needed them for. That's all.

Good luck if you are still looking.

Stick with what you have now and buy quality glass, upgrade your body in the future but invest in lenses first. the value of bodies goes down as newer ones come off the line. Quality lenses usually remain around the same.
