Canon Digital Rebel T1i vs. Nikon D5000

I can't imagine a situation in which I would choose a camera with a brighter LCD screen over a camera with better high ISO noise performance. If the D5000 really has acceptable noise performance up to 2500 iSO that's quite a boon for cameras in this class. And conversely noise problems at 800 ISO is pretty pathetic, I'm sure it's at least partly because of the unnecessarily high megapixel count, but anyone buying a first time camera trying to decide between these two cameras would be crazy to pick the canon over the nikon with that kind of difference in noise performance.



In the hot debate that happens over Canon vs Nikon, there is one element that gets overlooked: other brands. Yes, nobody is going to pay attention to you if you're carrying an Olympus or a Sony, but there is one name that I have yet to see in a side-by-side comparison against Nikon, and I think any reviewer to touch it would be surprised: Pentax.
