I'm in the market for a new DSLR. I've had some pretty good powershots in the past and need to graduate (tired of not being able to shoot in the dark, grainy pictures at high res, and lack of sharpness). I've set my eyes on the Nikon 5000 and the Canon 500D (which just came out), though someone really encouraged me to look at the Canon 5D Mark 2 in terms of value/quality.
A vendor today indicated that the processing speed on the Nikon was faster.
Any thoughts? Personal Experience? There seems to have been recall issues on the Nikon.
