"If you've held the XSi or XTi, you've held the T1i. It checks in a wee bit smaller and lighter than the D5000 (in case you weren't aware, we'll be doing that with some frequency throughout), though it doesn't feel "cheaper." In fact, we'd argue that the T1i feels a bit more "professional" (as in, sturdy, solid and less like a toy) than the D5000. More rubberized grips were in place, the whole body felt exceptionally rigid and one-handed operation is totally feasible thanks to the left-aligned rear LCD monitor."
Both the EOS Rebel T1i and D5000 slide in under the $1000 barrier and provide wonderful pictures, however, each camera has the edge in different areas. Engadget provides their impressions on each, showing where each DSLR shines and where they need work. With the prices getting lower, some of you may be looking into delving into the DSLR market. Beware that the low price of these cameras only represent the body. Getting lenses, filters and accessories will cost you more, and soon you'll find yourself with enough equipment to run your own photography studio and wonder what happened.
