I'm new to digital SLRs and debating between D40 & D80. I've used Nikon N70 few years ago and then have been using Canon Powershot S45 for past 4 yrs or so.

Here are my key requirements:

1). Faster operation: Instant startup (less than a second), focuses and takes photo quickly
2). Capture fast moving action + continuous shooting (aka rapid fire shooting or burst shooting)
3). Fully automatic + complete manual control in case I need to exploit
4). Good resolution: at least 6-8 MP, more is ok
5). Reuse the zoom lens (Sigma 100-300mm F4.5-6.7 UC) and filters bought for Nikon N70

With D80 double the price of D40, which of D40 & D80 will serve my needs better ?

Thanks,
-Arun
