Ok, this is going to be a brief summary because Firefox watched closely as I finished typing a half novel to makes its move to piss on itself and crash. Pretty much, I'm looking to make one last leap in the expensive world of DSLR's. I've been on the D80 for a few months, and its been up and down with different lenses. I think the problem comes from trying to use my images at 100%, in which I understand you can't always do (reading the threads in the section for the past 2 hours or so), so I figured to up my dreams and ideas in photography to buy a camera better suited with noise-reduction and more MP's so I can downsize it, hopefully to get the better results. If you want me to further explain myself just say so, I know the internet has narrowed to to tl:dr's and I dont blame you. Maybe I am a small kid with a small brain and dreams too big to fit my smile, but I think my dream to one day pony ride with J. Hendrix under the sea puts that conclusion to rest. So as of now, I'm leaning towards a D300, but am also considering the D90.
