Which do you recommend, Nikon or Canon?
Jan 21, 2007

I planned on buying a Nikon D80 until a salesman at B & H photo told me that the D80's 3 frames per second was a complete waste of money for the sports photos (little league baseball, soccer, and basketball) that I'll mainly use the camera.

The salesman suggested the Nikon D200 or the canon 30D. How significant is the 3 vs. 5 fps for sports/action photos? Also, I'm making this jump from a point and shoot and am a little apprehensive of the D200 because it doesn't have a scene mode dial like the 30D or the D80.....Any thoughts.
