    Hi,

    I would consider myself a fairly proficent camera user. I am looking for a 35mm slr with automatic settings and manuel.I want a camera with lots of features, quality and durability. I can't spend more than $215 including the lense.

    What do you suggest? I have looked at the Nikon n65,75,80. I also have looked at the Canon Eos series.

    Thanks

    Have you checked out the info on the N90s? I have one, and love it!

    manual focus = go for a nikon fe

    autofocus = n90s or f90

    You may even be able to find a "rough" f4 for $150, leaving you enough for a decent lens.

    since the n80 is newer shouldn't it be better than the n90s?

    You're limited to what lenses you can use with the N80. Go with the N90s. Prices are nearly the same anyway.

    I am more interested in the actual camera features than the lenses. I am just confused as to which one is better (n80 or n90s) as far as durability, features, qaulity and overall value.

    The N90s in all aspects.

    what would be a good lens for $100 or less for the n90s camera. A multi purpose lens is needed.
