I dithered over the Canon Rebel and the Nikon D80 for a long time. It is a matter of taste. I love the alleged "Nikon Blue" as well as the Nikon "Painterly Effect" that Canon loyalists eschew.

Being a newbie, I liked the versatility of the 11 point auto-focus system. While finalizing my choices, Canon was using a media that was falling out of popularity, can't remember what it was just now, and the D80 was using the SD card. Basically, the newer SD card and of course, the versatility of the Nikon 'glass' won me over. I don't have a lot to spend on lenses and Nikon does deliver some sweet 'affordable' glass.

I LOVE my D80. I was a rank beginner with a good eye. I am learning so much about the art of photography from using my D80 daily. I'm doomed for I already hunger for a larger sensor and forsee a D300 in my future. I'll always keep the D80 around as a second camera.

I need to know D80 has a CCD where as Canon 40D has a CMOS. Does this make big difference?
I am planning to get 40D but due to the extra $ i might be going for D80 so need some serious help on this.

Also is there a chance that canon brands takes sharper picture compared to Nikon?

No noticeable difference in the results. Each type has it's advantages and disadvantages.

Sharpness is more a function of lens and technique than a body. I'm assuming of course that this question is related to your first question. So the answer to this is also no.

Re: The Nikon D80

Hello,
I'm a big fan of Nikon. Nikons are sturdy and easier to use. They also have great lenses.
The D80 is a really good camera, but it has a lot of features only a pro would use (or understand), and it gets kind of pricey. Take a look at the D60, or D40X, and see if they can give you the functions you want and save you some money.

Re: The Nikon D80

The D80 was my first DSLR, and I just upgraded to the D300. I plan on using it as a second camera for event/wedding shoots. Having two Nikons give me more versatility, because I can have two different type of lenses in use at the same time. Particularly when focal range is a factor. Now i'm focusing on getting me some new glass. I plan on purchasing a 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX Lens this month, to prepare for the upcoming shoots I have booked.
