I am about to enter the DSLR age and despite reading a gazillion articles on my two options i decided to join here and ask for (i hope) some impartial advice.

I cannot make my mind up whether to buy:

D5000
Rebel T1I

From what i have read should i be worried about the alleged poor low light shooting capabilities of the D5000?

Am i correct that there is no autofocus in Manual mode? and should this worry me?


Should i opt for a body only D5000 and then add the Nikon Telephoto Zoom AF-S DX VR IF-ED Zoom-Nikkor Lens rather than the packaged deal that is on offer of the D5000 with a 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens.


Any feedback on the above would be most welcome.

Regards,

Defoe
