I'm seriously interested in a new camera. I'm thinking to upgrade from 8 to 10 mega pixels. My concern is if the D80 or the 400. I doesn't know which lens also [main interest: some indoors family picture, and try some shots outside, spotting].

Quoting Viv (Reply 4): Amazing camera for the money.
As is the 400D. At the end of the day, current Nikon users will wax lyrical about the D80, Canon users about the 400D. To summise, they are both capable cameras, neither is really better than the other and they will both produce more-than-good-enough images. Call me biased but I do reckon Canon has the more impressive lens line-up. On another note, I upgraded from a 350D to a 400D, however unless you're like myself (must have the latest all-singing, all-dancing camera) it really isn't worth it (in my opinion).

Quoting ChrisH (Reply 22): I much prefer the nikon lens lineup, so do many others, and as far as image quality goes they're both equally great.
Many people do indeed prefer the Nikon line-up but Canon does have more choice - grab a brochure from each manufacturer and count 'em. You'll find that Canon has 5-6 versions of a 70-200 alone - not including those offered by third parties. In addition, I never said Canon lenses produce better images. In my eyes, Canon and Nikon are exactly equal. What Canons lack Nikons have and vice-versa - Canon greater lens choice and Nikon better built bodies, for instance.
