If I were ready to make an investment on lens, I'd probably go with 400D. But as you also suggest that camerarequires a decent lens to shine. Have a look at Steve's sample shot of thebrick buildingwith Tokina 12-24

Even if half the life expectancy of 50.000might apply to SR,whichaccounts foralmost 4-5 years for me, it sounds allrightconsidering the thousands of blurr free low light and low ISO shots I may enjoy before a replacement:-) Still, your 'moving part'scenario is worth considering:?

Thanks again for your kind remarks.

Yes very good photo's, I downloaded one to have a look, IMG_1570_CR2

10.7megabyte jpg file :? very large file in high definition. Quality always

seems great when files are this size :-).....what do you think of a prime

lens and a body combination? prime lenses are usual cheaper than the

zoom lenses.

I've also caught that one, the big fish:G Impressive indeed! Yet,looks a bit much sharpenedfor my taste.

As for prime lenses, Iunderstand that they often provide betterimage quality and faster glass,which is very appealing. I shouldbe needing a couple of primes then... Well, Iwouldn'tmind changing them often but I have to check out first if they'll be available at a reasonable price around here!

Thanks for the idea:idea:

What i mean is the Pentax has better color as where the Nikon looks more dull.

I'm trying to decide on Nikon, Canon or Pentax. I've been trying to decide since the summer of '06. Right now I'm leaning towards the Pentax K100D or K10D, but have not decided for sure, yet.

I like the Pentax features, in camera shake reduction, K10D's sealing, dust reduction system, ruggedness, etc.

I like the D80, just wish it had some of these Pentax features. I also like the Canon 30D, but wish it had some of the Pentax features, although that metal body and 5 fps are impressive.

BTW, I think the Pentax colour saturation is better in your pix than the Nikon.
