    I initially wanted to get a D70 but then found out they were discontinued
    then i was like okay d50 found out hte same thing
    then i was looking at the xti but found out its a crappy cam

    what the hell should i get? I want something in the $800 range with lens

    Nikon D40 at 6.1mp with lens for 750ish
    nikon d40x at 10.2mp with lens for 950-1000ish


    btw, nothing wrong with the xti. I wanted canon, that probably would have been my purchase.

    spend the cash go with a d80...It's a good middle ground...not as complex as a d200, but WAY more bang for the buck over the d40...the xti/d40 bodies suck...too small and uncomfortable imo...fullbody D80 just has more to offer.

    I've had both nikon and canon, a D50 and a 30D, granted the 30D is more expensive the lens build quality for canon is ridiculous
