Obviously for logoes you will always need to produce them in vector format. Other than that it depends on what yoiu are doing. I do my websites in illustrator first and then import them to photoshop

I would agree that Illustrator is the best for logos.

I do all illustration/creation in Illustrator. I reserve Photoshop for photomanipulation. I do MOST layout in InDesign, unless it's single page item, then I use Illustrator.

To be completely honest about this......how in the world does any designer expect a client, contestholder to worked a photoshop vector file made up of masks and with tons of layers to make the file 84 mb! No way will a client understand how to work this type of file. If you are not creating an eps file that is editable, meaning everything, no masks, no effects, no photoshop files filled with masks, then do not enter the logo contests. I have to fix this and to be honest I am tired of it, come on designers, our rules are clear and easy to follow

Logos and vector illustrations, basically anything that needs to be very clean and controlled is best achieved with Illustrator. However loosely put together things, pictures, effects general manipulation is definitely more fun in Photoshop.

Depends on what your trying to do.. If something from scratch it is always better to be traced in Ai then taken to Ps.
If working on signs or something that you know will be enlarged later in the future then Ai for sure.
To summon things up
Ai for anything you need crisp and pliable " can be enlarged or reduced with no pixilation to graphic".
Ps for anything that is pixel based or is to complexed to be vectorized. "Make sure the largest size you will be scaling if ever is only 200% if enlarging". This measure does not include resolution but only size of the graphic itself.

I highly recommend that when working in Ps that you work in the exact size needed for final output. But if limited in memory then the above instructions for scaling can be used.

We are supposed to hand over vector files for logos.

So, I think the answer would be to use Illustrator only.

Illustrator has an easier learning curve, but photoshop has better tools-except for the pen tool... I <3 the pen tool in illustrator :D
