Hi! And welcome to the forum!

Within the boundaries of 'vacation' and occasional sports photography, there's still too much choice to narrow your search I'm afraid.

For sports, higher fps and reliable auto-focus are important . You can't go wrong with a 40D or D300, but there are other options still.

What is your budget? Any preferences on lenses? How do you value physical dimensions, live-view, viewfinder coverage, video etc.

Hello luxury, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!

Martino has already asked the right questions. And let me add our proverbial standard here at Camera Labs: "Lenses matter more than bodies."
And as lenses esp. for sports get pretty expensive pretty fast you need to balance your wishes with your budget. We can give some advice on these topics but need to know your requirements and priorities a bit better...
