Hi! I haven't posted on these boards in ages. This thread has been very helpful in narrowing my choices into dSLR, I had an Oly 770. I love the fact that the camera and details are posted, plus the folks are friendly.
I made the plunge this weekend and got a D80 kit with the 18-135 plus I picked up a Tamron 28-75 2.8. I'll be adding to this thread soon mostly nature shots, although it's drab around here in PA this time of year.
