I recently made the same transition from a Oly C-3000z which when new was more than I
paid for my whole 35mm setup, and I bought a N75 Nikon.
Afterwards I discovered that the N80 is probably a better value. More features and
less traditional features are crippled.
Lens-wise, I went with two of the G series lenses, the one that came in the
kit(28-80) and the cheap 70-300 G zoom, but the D series are useable with more
cameras.The F100 looks to be a great camera, and if you can afford it, the F5. Both
cameras are considerably more ...
