Hi, I want to buy a DSLR camera, and because i loved my old nikkon coolpix (yeah i know it hurts her, buts its time for a new one), i kinde drawn toward the nikkon DSLR, but now i'm reading more forums about the stuff, my nightmare about choosing the "right one" is getting worse every day. In the end of this year i want to make a trip to india (to practice yoga) and i also like to make some nice picuters there. For the body, i'm thinking between the D40 D40x D80. (i know the difference between the lens zoom options between them) the choise between the d40-D40x is about being able to blow up a picture on poster format, i'm not sure if i'm gonne use it but i know its frustrating if you can't, but could annybody tell me from experiance how big you can print with the D40 and the D40x and how much better the d40x is with that part. (if you do please refere to the A0 format) I personaly think the body of the d40's are a bit to small for me and specially if you gonne use a big lens. also people told me that you can set more things manual in the D80 and offcourse the lens engine in the body is a pro. But i don't know how deeply i will go in to it but i'm drawn more towards the D80 at this time. But that between the body's now my 2nd nightmare came alive, the lens i shoudl choose.. This is a small list what i want my lens to be able to do... (or multiple lenses) i want to be able to make like portrait style of yoga positons i would like to make also landscape or building pictures i would love to zoom in on flowers or other nature things. (yeah i know it almost covers everything...) But i want them to be sharp, i seen pictures of zoom of a temple from a friend made with a 70-200 but what you see is that the zooming part is sharp and the rest in the background is more a blur, and that is something i don't like. So ik want to make pictures that are completely sharp all the way, specially with buildings or landscape's. I don't know if that is possible and i don't know what kind of lenses you need for that. I can imagine when you zoom and take a macro shot from a flower that only the flower is sharp and not the rest, but in landscapes or buldings, or portraits like pictures i want all to be sharp. (but maybe i want to much) Oh yeah at last, i'm a bit on a budget, i can't buy those 1500$ lenses you find on the internet, i am hoping to keep my entire set below that amount, or maybe its just mission impossible.... Is there anny body who can give me some good advice? Namaste Aernout.
