LarryBoy in Michigan,
I currently use a point and shoot Sony cybershot dsc-100...I am considering upgrading to a Nikon P-80, or the Nikon D-40, not quite sure which would be better, not looking to purchase additional lenses in the future.
Although the Sony takes great shots, it is limited in outdoor work.
weak telephoto, and lack of use of filters is a big turn off, not to mention it is only 5 meg. pixel camera.
I use photoshop quite a bit to doctor up the photo's due to lack of filter applications.
