Photography Soup (8/6/07) (updated)

  • PC Magazine picks their favorite digital cameras as part of their Back To School mega-feature. Take that with a grain of salt as they have strange comments like this: "If you want more zoom from a kit lens and are willing to pay just a bit more for a D-SLR, the Nikon D80 is the camera for you", which makes you wonder whether their choices are the results of a beauty contest, or a random drawing :-) Apparently they are confused: They may be thinking that the D80 bundled with the 18-135 are glued together, and the D40/D40x are glued to the 18-55 DX lens :) Needless to say the D80 is available as body only, with the 18-55 or the 18-135 lens, and the D40/D40x are available as body only, with 18-55, or with a two-lens kit that *gasp* has "more zoom" than the D80 lens!
