Looking to get some feedback on planned purchase.

I am leaning toward a D40X vs. a D80. I'm leaning this way based on: a)my skill level is not great; b) save some money to put toward better accessories; c) lighter to carry.

My only real concern is that the D40X might not be constructed as well which may lead to durability issues (may be a perception issue).

I also plan to buy a 18-200mm lens.

I would appreciate any feedback.
