    Honestly Yen, you'd be happy either way. People who have Nikon will prefer Nikon and people who have Canon will prefer Canon. Check out dpreview.com for great and in-depth reviews. I shoot Nikon so you can already predict my bias. From what I've read the Nikkor lenses are a little superior to Canon. Once you buy one or the other, that's what you'll stick with. You're going to be so happy to have a new camera! I can't WAIT to see your pictures with it! Congratulations (on the anniversary too, haha)!

  3. ohh i want both also for my birthday.. LOL
    I'm hoping I'll get the Canon btw.. been dreaming for it for so long !!

    You can't go wrong with either one! I'm a Canon girl, but in all honesty if I were just starting out, I may go Nikon because I think the colors are often brighter and more vibrant in the Nikon.

    just to confuse things, i have an olympus e-volt 500. i think it would be in the same class as what you're looking at. the zuiko lens system is just amazing! i love the features, and the feel of it. not too heavy, but still solid.

    and mr yen buying you a camera for your anniversary? does it get any better? tell him i'm impressed.

    Would Mr YEN buy a Mercedes or a BMW ? they both have superb features and you will definately be happy whatever way you go.

    I too am a Nikon girl - I have the D200 and LOVE IT ! I haven't tried the N80 but my backup camera is a D70 and that is great too.

    dpreview is a great resource - so look at the features of the 2 cameras as you can compare them online and go for the one that appears to fit your needs !

    Remember as well, is not to be too fussed with the whole megapixel thing. It is something the salesman have bombed our brains with - 6/8/10 million pixels - the higher the better --however 6 mgpixels is truly acceptable for the majority of people's photography ! Rather look at OTHER features !

  8. Yen, I think the D80 is an AWESOME camera. I got upgraded from a d70 to a d200 this summer not knowing that the d80 was coming out...if I had, I would have saved my money and got the d80...from everything I hear, it does just about everything the d200 does. Don't know if you have costco access or not, but you can order a great d80 kit at cotsco.com

    Have fun...you'll be happy with whatever you get! DSLR's are a lot of fun to work with!

    I'm jealous! I want a D80 or a D200 next!!! I just ordered a new computer (yipee) so I'm going to have to wait a while on the new camera. Let us know what you get Yen!

    Oh MAN!! You are all making me drool here, LOL!! I want one of those camera's so bad!! I just barely started saving my money. Not even a 10th of a way there, but Hey, I guess I need to start somewhere. I am sure by the time I buy the latest and greatest, something better will come along.

  11. Hey ladies! I got the Nikon D80!!!! Wohoooo..and yes, earlier

    Well, since I have a little time to decide. I guess I better study up on the two. Nikon is sounding more like what I want though.

    cheap sometimes doesnt mean better. Be careful some of the online cheepies are chetars --so be warned.
