Hello everybody, I am new to the forum and new to photography. I am actually researching cameras for my wife and while doing that, I am getting really interested in the hobby. I can't wait to buy her the camera so I can use it. I am looking for a higher quality DSLR camera that would be able to produce images that would be resale quality. My wife wants to get back into photography again. She is much more familiar with photography than I am. She studied it a little in college. i have just start within the last month and I love it. After researching a little bit I have narrowed it down to the Nikon D80 and the Pentax K10D. I am really leaning towards the D80 but the Pentax has the rubber seals and I have a feeling we will be taking this on vacations with us and that is usually by the ocean. I also like the built in stabilizer that the D80 lacks. But for what the D80 lacks in those things I think it makes up for it in quality and options. I can always pick up a VR lense. This is only what I have found in my research. I know you guys and girls are much more familiar with these two camera than I and I would greatly appreciate any help on a decision. Also, if you think another camera would be better I would appreciate those suggestions also. I would like to keep it in this price range though. Thank you for you help in advance and I can't wait to start to learn more about photography. It looks as if this forum has alot to offer.
