"Good Camera"4.0 starson by tbcass
Pros: Image Quality
Cons: Grip, Price, Poor spot metering
Summary: Good camera but I prefer the A200.
"The reviewer said Though it'll run you a few bucks more than competitors such as the Sony Alpha DSLR-A200 or the Nikon D60, the Canon EOS Rebel XSi will deliver slightly better performance and noticeably better photo quality in return, making it a worthwhile trade-off."
I don't know what to say about that. I did some extensive comparisons on line at various web sites that had photographic samples and for the life of me I can't see a significant difference in IQ between this camera and the A200 (or the D60 for that matter) even at 100%. For that reason I like the Sony for the built in image stabilization and better overall handling (and lower price). Looking for insignificant differences in IQ at the pixel level has no practical value.
