    I'd somewhat agree on that.

    Well it's up to you really. I'd pick a 400D over a D40, while i'd pick a D50 over a D40. Between 400D and D50 per say, neutrail.

    Now its a question of do you want to be an AF-S exclusive user only or do you still want to use prime lenses or lenses with motor driven screw threads.

    Your call.

    If I were to chose, I will go for the Sony A100 or the Pentax K100.

    D80 is my first DSLR. If you are seriously into photography and don't mind spending a little more, IMO go for the D80. It should last you quite a while and it comes will a very usable kit lens.

    When you watch the slide show on your TV with music - Connected to D80... you'll LOVE it. Still photos comes to life and move at the rythm of the music... All in D80!!!

    I do not think it is fair to compare Canon 400D with Nikon D40. Comparison with Nikon D80 is more appropriate. In this case, I will go for D80.

    Just go to any store & hold both cameras in your hand. Whichever camera feels most comfortable in your hands and how easy (or difficult)you operate the camera would determine which camera you should be getting.

    I agree 100%. In the end you may not even pick a Nikon or Canon. Make sure to try all brands.
