After a fairly long ponder
, and after starting out considering a super zoom
I have settled on a much better camera and am picking up a D80 18-135 kit from Heathrow today before heading out to Sweden on work
My decision really was made when I tried it in the flesh yesterday - this camera felt superb. That coupled with the reviews and Gordon's gentle pursuasion at the end of the D40x review that the D80 is a better choice, made the decision for me.
It's a good deal: £570 for the kit inclusive + £50 cashback from Nikon.
Anyway if I have a chance to use it in Stockholm I'll post any decent results here (assumining anyone is interested
Quick question for anyone: how long does it need to charge the battery first time?
