    Which is the best DSLR to go with? I'm looking at the 40d from Canon and the d80 from Nikon.

    The Nikon is the way to go, as the Canon is utter junk.

    Don't get excited Nick Nolte just having some fun

    seriously OP: go to your local camera store and try them out. pick them up. see which one fits your hands the best. see if the controls are in a comfortable spot for you. both brands are very good. it has been said on here before.....you aren't buying a camera......you are buying a system.

    I originally had typed "Mr. Nolte" first but its too formal for the mug shot.;):D

    I guess I wasn't being all that helpful either. Well, either choice is a good one. That's enough !

    the d80 is nearly half the price of the 40d.

    I've heard great things about the 40d.

    Either one you get, if it's your first dSLR, you're probably not going to realize what features you're missing until a year or two after you get it.
