Canon Digital Rebel v Nikon D100

by onutek / December 28, 2003 5:51 AM PST

Any insights into major differences between the two. Have used Nikon for many years....8008s, etc. Nikon 5700 has been great but would like to move into the "SLR" category for digital (and use old lens?). Thanks.

The Nikon D100 sells for about $1,500 without lens.
The Canon Rebel sells for about $900 without lens.
A Rebel with a 18-55mm lens sells for about $1,000.

The Canon Rebel is a cost reduced model of the Canon EOS-10D, which sells for about $1,500 without lens.

The Rebel has a plastic housing and a few less features than the Canon EOS-10D.

A comparison of the Rebel and EOS-10D can be found at:

A review of the Nikon D100 can be found at:

Reviewers rate all three cameras very high.
Sounds like it is a win win situation.
If a decision is based upon cost, it would depend upon how many lenses you have that will fit the Nikon D100.

The Digital Rebel is not as well built as the D100 but it is the latest model by Canon and is compatible with all the Canon EOS lenses.

But if you have a collection of Nikon lenses you may have to stick to those Digital Cameras that uses Nikon lens mount: D100, Fuji FinePix S2 Pro, or Kodak DCS 14n.

Bear in mind that the D100 & S2 are several years old now and in digital technology may soon be too outdated.
I suspect Nikon will soon be releasing new models to keep up with the others.

Check out Olympus E-1 which is designed from the ground up for digital with a set of digital lenses.

Cannon digital rebel is a toy. It is not built to last and has minimal features. The D-100 is far superior in almost every area. it is worth the extra $ and is down to around $1000-
