I'm planning on getting my wife a dSLR, something lightweight and easy to use. Is there any reason to go with the D80 instead of the D40X? I plan on putting the 18-200 on it, for all intensive purposes, permanently. I might also use it as a second body with the 17-55mm f/2.8 during weddings while I leave the cream machine (yet to be purchased) on my D200. If its too heavy I doubt she will even use it so right now, and until someone convinces me the D80 is a far superior body, I'm leaning towards the D40X.
