Are there any other websites that offer good reviews on DLSRs? I usually use dpreview.com and visit a few others, but how "reliable" is dpreview? Are they biased? So far I have based all my DLSR decisions on what I read on dpreview, but if they're not all that accurate, then I would like to read elsewhere.
dpreview is about the most detailed reviews out there. I find that after reading their reviews, I don't find anything else I haven't already read.
Ok thanks. It's just a bit difficult to sometimes judge if what they are presenting are genuine, in terms of their samples etc... Most of their reviews indicates that Canon is better. Either that, or they are biased.
I found an interesting site that shows the write speeds of various DSLRs. You can select your camera from a drop-down list and it shows you the speeds at which the cameras wrote the images to the memory cards. There are many different types of cameras and memory cards used.
EDIT: It basically shows you that those amazing speeds that they promise, are only when you are transferring the images from the camera to the pc. You will probably never get those speeds at writing to the camera.

Does it matter which card reader I get? Will the speeds be slower if I get one of those that can read almost all different types of cards? Does the Extreme reader really perform better?
The Extreme performs very well - better than the built-in all-in-one that my HP laptop had. Can't say much beyond that - I've only ever had this one and the built-in one.
I handled a canon last night and I am happy that I went Nikon, was cool to have 15 focus points though
