The only think holding me up is my desire to use my 50mm 1.8 lens. I love that lens on my F75. It's on 90% of the time. When I go digital, that is the only lens I will keep.

So D80 looks like the camera for me, but it's 1K. D40 is all I need if I could let go of this need to use the 50mm.

Let me ask this: 50mm is good for low light. If I was to bump up ISO, I could do low light, correct? Yes, 50mm could go lower. We can keep on going with this....

The kit lens isn't all that bad.

Question:

Do you really feel you need a 50mm lens? 50mm will be 75mm in digital. I'm not sure if it will still be my #1 lens.

It'll be hard to let go of my favorite lens, but life goes on....
