    as the price between a D80 and 30D is less than $500 different (sorry, if i am wrong on this figure), why not chose a semi-pro body then?
    If you intend to use it for shooting at arab street, chinatown on weekends and join canonmarathon once a year or shoot free models at car show...keep that $500 in the bank.
    but since you have the intention to go semi-pro, i personally think it will be good to start with a semi-pro body.

    he is deciding between nikon and canon now, so that is why i am not mentioning brands like olympus, pentax, sony, etc..
    why OT for him? I am just answering his question.
    Sorry meant no harm, I misinterpreted ur answer
