Hello all, After months of searching I am still confused over what DSLR to get as my first one. It is pretty much a toss-up between the Canon XTi, Nikon D40, and D80. I'll start by saying what I like about each camera and don't like. D40: Small, Cheap, a fair choice for an enthusiast like myself. That being said, I dislike how it does not have an in body auto focus motor. Xti: Small, Relatively inexpensive, In body AF-S motor. I do not really feel confident about buying a Canon camera, I am more familiar with Nikon. I also do not really like the cheap build quality of the XTi. D80: It's fairly expensive (for me). I would be breaking the bank if I were to buy it. Now, I am an enthusiast. I would be using the camera to take pictures of everything. The first year, I would probably only stick with 1 or 2 lenses, and maybe a 50mm prime. I want to spend as little as possible, but still end up with a good camera. The most I want to spend is $1200 Canadian including all needed accessories, taxes, shipping, etc. What I really want is a camera that will last me a good 2 or 3 years without me having to buy another body because it lacks a certain feature or spec that I find myself needing, such as in body auto focus. Cheers! Also, quick question. Are more companies now making the bulk of their new lenses Af-S?
