Of course you know that the major differences are the 6MP vs 8MP resolution, Sony's four-color sensor, and the fact that the D100 uses interchangeable lenses.

The Sony also has Sony's Nightshot technology, which is way cool, and fairly different ergonomics.

From what I've read about the 828's predecessor (Mike Johnston over at The Luminous Landscape has a lot to say about it) I think the question of whether I wanted an 828 or a D100 would be a toughie. Since I don't have any Nikon glass or flash equipment, I think that if you appeared before me this instant with both cameras and said, "Choose!" I'd probably go with the 828, simply because I don't have the cash for glass right now.

I used a D100 last week and liked it a lot, but the images I got out of it really didn't seem any better than the images I've seen out of my BIL's 828, and I'm a better photographer than he is. So for your first digicam, especially if you're not going to have a lot of money to spend on glass, I'd say the 828 would be a solid choice. I'd sure like one.

You would be better off comparing the D70 999.00 Nikon to the 828 in that area. I'm only offering my opinion here, but while the Sony may shoot good, it does not allow interchangable glass, so you have what it gives (35-200 equivalent). I've looked at it and the reviews.. From what I see at ISO 64 and 100 it is pretty good, but at anything higher, there is lots of complaints about noise levels.

My opinion is to stay DLSR for that one day when you suddenly need better zoom, wider zoom or to replace a zoom because you dropped your camera on the lens and broke it..

Wait a month to see the reviews of the Nikons D70 and E8700(alos 8MP). I always tell my friend that the camera you choose to buy has a lot to do with your intended use of it and amount of money to spend.

You may want to a camera that is easy to use if you are just starting. The new SLR's are small computers with lot's of menu/buttons to understand. After over a year I am still learning everything there is to know about my camera.

Good luck

go with the nikon....the sony is limited to the glass on the camera, which ain't all that good and in the prints I have seen from my local shop it seems to have some serious artifacts in the prints.

If you are gonna spend a grand go nikon or canon....stay out of point and shoot hell! LOL!
