Re: which dslr

Thanks everyone for your help. I ended up buying a D80 with the 18-70 lens.

I really liked how the information was displayed on the lcd of the xti but I really didn't like how it felt. My fingers felt like they were going to cramp after holding the camera for a short while. I also didn't like the mixed reviews for the 17-85 lens.

I didn't really like the small lcd screen on the D80 but the camera was much more comfortable to hold. The 18-70 reviews seemed to have better reviews than the 18-135 and the local stores I called didn't have the 18-200.

The store that I bought the D80 from said the D50 was discontinued so that was ruled out.

I also bought a Slingshot 200 bag. I'm planning on buying a manfrotto 190 tripod and later (before I go to Hawaii in October) the 70-300VR lens.

Here is the very first picture I took with the D80:
