Hello, Yes, I am still undecided on what SLR to buy. The ones that I am currently looking at are the XTi, D40, or possibly D80. I really want to try to spend as little as possible, but if it is really worth it and I will not be changing systems for a while then I will spend the extra $$$. My goal is to not spend over $1000 canadian, including lenses, accessories, and taxes. Here are the things that really appeal to me about each camera: D40: The Good Small and compact Good build quality (or so I have heard) Easy to use The Bad 3 point Auto focus can only auto focus with AF-S lenses I might be wanting to replace it a year later... XTi: The Good: 9 point auto focus Dust cleaning 10 mega pixels Can auto focus with EF and EF-S lenses The Bad: Poor build quality Bigger than D40 (not that I would really mind too much) And I dont know much about the D80... Can anybody give me some side opoinons? Maybe show me some sample shots of what these cameras can do? Thanks.
