Compared to Nikon D80... In its favour the 40D is tougher, quicker, fires-off frames more than twice as fast, while also featuring Live View, a bigger screen, PC Sync port, anti-dust features and optional accessories including a wireless transmitter
Well TelexStar, I didn't hear Gordon say in his verdict that the IQ of the 40D is superior to the D80's IQ. But let's hear it from himself.
Otherwise my position is to look into IQ and lenses first, before you get carried away over features.
And I still think this is sound advice!
Btw, K_g: If you really want to have more "fun" with your camera, why not invest in a new lens (you know which one I'm thinking of
) instead of a new body? You think that 6MPix is not any longer "good" enough? Or what is it that makes you dislike your D40?
