Hi i'm new to this forum.
I'm currently looking to buy my first DSLR.
I've already read a topic in the Nikon forum about someone who wanted to buy either a nikon d80 or eos 30d.
Now I have the same problem.
So Gordon Laing answered that he thought that that person would be better of with a Nikon d80 than with the 30d.
I'm still hesitating between the two camera's.
I want the camera with the best image quality.
I think that you can't see which is an 8 mp image and which is a 10 mp one.
And more pixels on the sensor = more noise.
But on the other hand the 30d is more expensive than the d80.
So I really don't know what to do.
At first I leaned to canon because I wanted to buy the EF 70-200 mm f/4 L
lens later on but maybe Nikon or Sigma has a good alternative for this lens.
This is going to be my first DSLR but on long terms I want to upgrade to a professional camera with professional lenses. Now my opinion is that Canon has better high end camera's than Nikon so maybe that's also a good reason to go for canon.
But if it's really worth it , i'm prepared to pay the extra money and go for the 30d. Maybe you could also do a video tour ?
As you can see I have a lot of questions.
Please help me out !
