I just want to say great board and I have learned a ton. Although I am new to the board I have been reading a ton as well. I almost think too much in a way. I thought I had decided on a DSLR but now I am lost. There is mixed reviews over cannon and nikon on here. My goal is to capture sporting images in all aspects. I like the Nikon D300 and the Canon 40D. I am leaning more towards the canon and loke these lenses. Canon EF 300 f/4l IS,400 f/5.6l , and 70-200 f/2.8. I have no idea on a what lense to get for close up and everyday shooting. Any feedback on what I have so far would be great. I would rather get answers before I buy and save money then lose it.
