your class 6 is more than enough, ultra III's are pretty intense, i think which you only see benefits if you're using it for HD video. but for 10$, you can't really go wrong :] that's a nice card for continuous shots
as for cleaning the nikon :[ no idea sir sorry. i say i do agree with your upgrade plan :] take a class on basics of digi photog if so you can get the best bang out of your D80 though! :]!

If you like the 50D, definitely consider it, because it has some very worthy improvements (mostly the new LCD screen), but you might wait until the novelty of the 50D wears off and the price comes down. And I suggested the 40D because with the release of the 50D, it has come down in price quite a bit.
I think you're right, I might wait more than 2 months. The only real improvement I want is the noise ratio, and if the 40D is just as good, I'm happy. I mean, I don't need HDMI, and the 40D can output to a computer if I ever get series about portraits, right? [you know, auto display picture]. TBH I the LCD screen isn't a big woop for me. Hrmm 40D seems like a solid choice. I'll look more into it.
BTW, I figured out what bag I want :]
For my two SLR's + lens. Thanks for the suggestion. I cruised B&H and man they have some ugly aass bags.
