    i'm in a dilemma, i don't know which camera to buy. should i buy a canon rebel xsi(450d) with 18-55mm lens or should i buy nikon d80 with 28-80mm lens? the rebel will cost me 450 and the d80 for 440. both will be brand new and come with tripod, bag, sd card, sd card reader, and a cleaning kit. pros and con would be nice. thank you.

    D80 has dropped to $440? If that is indeed the case, grab the D80. Make sure it's from a reputable dealer (check resellerratings.com).

    Maybe it's a D40? $440 sounds more like D40 or D40x. D80 I thought was in $700-$800 range.

    My vote goes to the D80. Not just because I'm a nikon fan, but because that's an extremely good price for what you're receiving. What matters in the end though is which feels/functions better in your hands.
