Newbie here, just getting into dslr.
Wondering your thoughts if its worth an extra 500 to get the D80?

Will be doing family pics, vacation-etc.
Reason for coming over to the slr side is 1. Lag, 2. Zoom.

From playing with both, I do like the 11 point focus of the D80 but will this be overkill?
I guess I could start with the D40, but will I out grow it??

thanks for the input.
