I have been taking pictures for a little over a year and I'm still nowhere near being good at it. I am, however, taking classes this summer to help me improve. Right now, I'm sporting a D40 with a 18-200vr. My biggest draw back about this camera is the fact that I can't use any older lenses because of the focusing fiasco. Right now, I'm putting money away for a D80. However, I just got my refund check in for about $1,200, and I'm still getting that relief check that could be anywhere between $400 and $600. I was thinking of getting a D200 instead, but I really have the urge to get more glass rather than a better camera. What would otap suggest? D80 + 1 or 2 lens', or a D200 + 1 lens. I haven't looked at any glass. Right now, my objective is getting a camera that can use that glass.
