Default Nikon D80 with Good len or Nikon D300.

As my current Nikon D40x with AF-S 18-55mm lens, AF 70-300mm lens and AF 50mm lens. I have planned to upgrade my Camera to Nikon D300 and in the same time i want to change to Nikon D80 and with an expensive lens than Only Nikon D300 body.

Any comments?

There's no point going from the D40x to a D80 - the sensor is the same, and it wouldn't surprise me if the D40x has better image quality anyway, due to it's newer processing system.

If I were you I'd stick with the D40x and buy a better lens. A good lens will make more of a difference to your photography than the D300.

For the price of a D300 you could get yourself the 24-70mm f/2.8 - an excellent lens that is also full-frame compatible for the future.

The lens will also hold it's value whereas the D300 will be worth peanuts in a couple of years.

Hope that helps.
Cheers,
Ben

Nikon D80 and Nikon D300 uses the same sensor, in APS format, so I prefer the D80 with best lens.

I totally agree with Lucasgalodoido and the other members above. Get yourself the best lens which is also FX (full frame) compatible first. Then the body will come later as the price of the old bodies drop dramatically right after the new bodies are to be launched in the market.

I already bought N90 with kit and I have Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8 Macro.
