Hey guys, First of all thanks to everyone for all the support!! I'm having a very hard time trying to decide on a camera. My Sony W70 is the biggest piece and I'm torn between a new Canon SD880IS or a used in exc condition Nikon D40. I can get the D40 for $350 from a friend but don't really know if I want to go this route. I would love to learn about DSLR's and this would allow me to do so. How much of a difference will pics be going from the 880 to the D40?? I won't be blowing any up large. I'm also looking at the G9 since it's smaller if it will take better photo's than the 880. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
