    I have been offered two cameras at the right price, an EOS 100 and an F90x. Being an Olympus user i know i am going to be starting a new system from scratch and am interested in opinions on which way to jump.
    This is not intended to be a general canon vs. nikon debate. Just looking for comments from anyone with good/bad experience of either of these cameras.

    F90x was a good camera, I loved the way they improved matrix metering and faster autofocus, but that was 10 years ago.
    The camera itself felt solid, nice handling, even though it took a while to get used to after switching from a Pentax Spotty.
    All the Nikkor-D lenses are excellent, and also I used some Tokinas ATX with it.

    Can't comment of the Canon EOS though.
