I suggest reading through the review sites for more objective opinions... After all, you're also missing out on the Sony A700! ;)

Shops: read the stickies.

CF Card: it's not true that the potential for file corruption is lower.

Cameras that use CF card: Canon 40D, Sony A700. FYI: The Nikon D80 is "last year's" model.

In all honestly, and this is repeated about 1000 times on the forum... GO AND TRY THE CAMERAS. Asking us here for our opinion will only give you polarized views. Go to the shops, try the canons, the nikons, the sonys, the olympus and the pentax DSLRS and then make up your mind which of those cams "feels right". It has to be comfy for you to use.

Then, when you have your list, consider the features. Does it have built-in antishake or do you need to invest in expensive lenses? What's the image quality like? shot speed? Do you have DRO or not? etc etc...

yah, after checking out the differences between the models (which can be done), you can clarify further for user inputs here relevant to specific points.
