    It is always good to have 'motor in body' at lease that allowed you to have a wider range of lense choices. Specially the cheap and good 50mm f1.8 other you have to pay 4x the price to get a Sigma 30mm f1.4 (motor in lens).

    That's what the other threads are... It's "hey, i'm looking at a D80, D40 or a Canon 400D... What do you guys suggest?"

    Do consider a used camera system if this is your first time into DSLR too. After all, you are still in the process of searching for that system that works best for your shooting style.

    compared to the Nikon D200 (which uses a Sony Sensor, btw), the A100 still looks better imho:

    A100 looks better? Why everyone mask out 30D being the cleanest output? selective viewing? and the trees look yellowish as well..

    I did read up on the price list in the C's and N's gang territory...haha
    so i guess if possible i would like to squeeze in an external flash...i hate to use those flash which is inbuilt. (up to 2.5k...still promising, pending approval from my other half...lol)

    Oh 1 batt...is definitely not enough....i can use at least 3, im a heavy shooter, 4 is a safe number of batts for me. Heh

    actually why not just get a point and shoot?

    ok that's besides the point anyway ... i think D80 should fit your budget and usage pretty well, if you find the grip small can get the battery grip, i like the light weight and the colours are good.
