Upgrading my trusty D80

Hi forum folks!

I've had my lovely D80 for a few years now and this year launched my business. I now need to upgrade the body and get a new lens. I hired a D300s (i think) with a 24-70mm Nikkor lens in Feb and fell in love.

Problem...i don't have that much of a budget so need a camera that will give me a bit more oomph but will work with the DX lenses i already have.

Also...Nikkor 24-70mm V Sigma 28-70mm V Sigma 24-70mm MACRO

Help and thoughts...much appreciated

Consider a new D90 or a used D300. There has been a couple of D300's in the classifieds recently.

Re: Upgrading my trusty D80

Agree with Debhand,
D-90 or D-300 will a good choice for now.. Nikkor 24 -70 mm F/2.8 is a fabulous lens ( I am using it since one year and a love it performance) .. So it obvious I will recommend it
Sigma lens I have not used , so can't comment on those lenses.. Read great reviews
