    Can someone put in a nutshell what is different between Nikon D80 and the Canon 20D? Besides one is a nikon and the other is Canon lol....Without all the Pro tech talk...just sum it up ! :D

    Short story:

    I have Canon 20D and I am having a really hard time finding a portrait lens for a good price with this. So a buddy said sell it and buy a D80 and then the 35 mm f1.8 for 150....So i would like to know what I would be losing if I did this with the canon....or if I would anything at all...

    Switching camera systems (brands) seldom saves you money...it's usually the other way around.

    Suggestion:
    Buy the Canon 50mm F1.8 (cheaper than the Nikon version b.t.w.).
