Hello everyone. I am new to the thread and already had another question answered really quickly so I want to thank you all for the great welcome. I have been into photography for over a year now shooting mainly landscapes, cityscapes, lakes, and ponds. I currently use a Canon Powershot S2 that has provided me with some great photographs that I am very proud of. With the S2 I have learned many of the manual settings and the different results they give. A really good learning camera. So what am I getting at? I am looking into upgrading my equipment. I want to get an SLR camera that gives me even more manual settings, more options and more opportunities to expand my photography skills and knowledge. I have been looking at the Nikon line of SLR cameras basically from the D40 up to the D80. Out of the cameras given, I have mainly looked at the D80 as the next step. I am basically looking for any advice and if this is a good way to go. I am also interested as to what kind of lenses I should consider with my current photography interests? I want to possibly get into flash photography and the different flashes available for the Nikon cameras. Any and all input is appreciated. Thanks everyone.
