Hello everyone. I posted a thread previously about what kind of camera to consider purchasing. I did a lot of research and I have pretty much narrowed it down to these two cameras. I mainly shoot landscapes, lakes, nature and to throw a curve ball, structure fires. I currently use a Canon Powershot S2IS which has been a great camera but I want to expand my photography skills and play with a more advanced camera. The pro's about the Nikon D80 that pull me towards it are the specs, the feel of the camera in my hands, and the variety of accessories for it. If I bought this camera I decided that I would save my money and purchase the 18-200mm VR lens and the Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens for the night photography of structure fires as a tripod is an annoyance. The pro's of the Pentax K10D are the inexpensive lenses you can purchase and mostly, the Shake Reduction system. I can use lenses that have a higher f stop in darker conditions compared to the Nikon and that means I can purchase inexpensive lenses not having to worry about spending extra money for VR technology. I want to go with a camera that will give me great functionality and good service for my money. I want any information as to pro's and con's I have missed and other things or even cameras I should consider. Thanks everyone.
