    jared -To be honest, the D80 is a great camera. I'm just looking for a little bit more... a faster shutter speed and more options to play with. I've been taking a sports photography class and I can see where the 30d or the D200 might be of advantage. Also the D200 just feels more solid and nicer build quality in my hands.

    I've been reading that the 30d excels at higher ISO pictures and low light conditions... just makes my decision more confusing.


    Oh, and top of that I can return my D80 and buy a D200 for the same price

    And you haven't done this yet why?

    I mean I love my d80 and all, but if I was being offered a free upgrade, I'd always take it.

    no probs to date. Never had a clog or a bad print (that wasn't my fault anyway).

    7800 is bad ass, but no sheet feed ftl

    I've got some cost of ink and paper per print info if you want.
