    Nikon lenses are expensive, but very good.
    Canon body in not so handy, but has the latest sensor.

    so its hard to decide which brand to choose.

    Camera doesnt make any difference, if you dont know how to take good pictures.

    Think, think...

    Why not the D70S or D80 Kit?

    Hi.. D80 is above my budget. I was actually choosing btw D70s and 400D. I love the grip for D70s but not the screen. I quite like the outlook and the capabilities of 400D.

    My mistake, I meant CMOS.

    Comparing the D80 to the 30D, The Nikons has more direct control buttons and some say has better light metering. Many of the Canon controls are only in the menus.

    I can verify that Canon has terrible Auto White Balance in Tungsten lighting.

    Megapixels is important but not does mean everything. The older cameras that some guys suggested like Nikon D50, D70 or Canon 10D, 20D are pretty decent for your budget.
