The D80 and D40 both have usable ISO 3200.

merry xmas to you too..... great picture!

( but that doesn't win me over on the P&S side again ):blah:

Don't really know about the d40 and d80. Will give them a look. ( really considering changing brand for the sake of bodyIS/AS)

Being mainly a portrait photographer, I'd go for a Fuji S2 or S3 (if you can swing it). They are well known for their excellent color renditions (especially skin tones).

I have found that my post-buying-d50 criteria forlenses have changed quite a bit. I thought that i would save for a really expensive lens (VR), but i have since found outthat cheap glass like the 70-300mm G nikon nikkor really does the job for me, except for one thing.-

i often shoot in lowlight ( no sports ), just causal events when people are stationary, and i hate having to prensent people with an intrusive flash. Then again i hate having blurred pictures, and having access to both iso3200 and AS/IS/VR would be the dream for my shall we say :'eco-lenses'

iso 1600 could also cut it if i had AS......................

EDIT:

I havetaken the grand step and decided to keep the d50 but look into buying a whole other setup. ( my girlfriend loves the d50, and she just earned herself the right to call it her setup )

these are my choices.

1. Pentax K100d

2.Sony A100

3.KM 5D

Considering my focus on stationary shots in lowlight.

Would it be ludicrous of me to favour the 5D over the K100D?


sorry for all the trouble :sad:

The only downside to the KM 5d is availability. I doubt that it will be easy to find, as it has been out of production for many months now.
