I agree but once I decided to get a Nikon his 'biased' information between the different variations of the Nikons helped me considerably.
Kind've how a d50 and d70 aren't all that much different from each other but have the same exposure meter as a D200 for less money. And the D80 is similar to a D40 with an autofocus motor.
