E-510 or Nikon D80
Jan 3, 2008

I'm trying to decide whether to buy an E-510 or a Nikon D80.

I currently use an Oly C-8080 - it's a love/hate relationship (slow focus and
s-l-o-w-e-r Raw).

I travel and want something light. I considered the Pentax K10D but it seems a bit heavy and there are slow focus issues there as well.

I like the E-510's dust removal and IS but have heard there are viewfinder issues.

I then need to decide on glass, as I've heard the kit stuff is not up to snuff (the C-8080's glass is amazing when I'm on).

I have no investment in lenses and have an Oly FL-40 flash which I understand won't work with the E-510.

I take travel photos, general family, etc. and compete in a club showing large prints.

Advice from you experts will be appreciated.
