Nikon D50 or Canon 350D


I'm not sure about my choice and I need a little help.
Which one is better?
Here , in Iran Nikon D50 is about $750 + lens 18mm , 50mm , 1 year warranty
and Canon 350D is about $870 + lens , 1 year warranty.
If you have any idea about other DSLRs PlZZzz.... tell me.
Thanx.

Bob Fately   Morteza, I don't think there's enough technical difference between these two cameras to make a decision based on some obscure feature.

Instead, I suggest you hold each of them in your own hands - see if one feels better. Balance, focus ability, ease of reading the viewfinder - these are the kinds of things that really matter and that nobody else can tell you. Just because one model fits my hands better than the other, it doesn't mean that you'll go the opposite way.

  yes, they are both very close to the same thing... Maybe go to a site like B&H and see what the lenses for each one costs.. maybe that will help you decide.
good luck!

  I like it fine. I got it right after it came out and paid aroung 900.00 USD and I was gonna sell it and get the new 30d but instead I just bought the grip for it and the 70-200mm "L" f4 from amazon.com
Good luck with your dilima between two cameras!
