Hi folks,

Your opinions on the Nikon D40 and the Canon EOS 450D would be appreciated as I cannot decide which to buy.

Nikon everytime!

Research the add-ons, including non-nikon lens.

If the Canon gives better value for money you may have your answer.

The problem with the Nikon D40 is there's no lens motor in body means which non-AF-S/AF-I lenses are manual focus only

RAW+JPEG setting only records Basic quality JPEG's. No exposure or white balance bracketing.

If you want to go the Nikon route then the D80 is the way to go.

Of the two mentioned there is no contest the Canon 450D is the one to go for. this will take the full range of lenses and also comes with Live View.

Check it out click here. you could also check out the D40

hssutton the link you supplied is very helpful.
Now looking at your suggested Nikon D80 I may go for that one instead?

Now your talking. Way to go. I have a D50 which is not available now but the D80 or D90? is on my wishlist
