@kb100: The Tamron 90mm - 16.5K and about 13K for 17-50mm.
(BTW how is the Sigma's performance on your 40D)
@given2fly: Both the Tamron 17-50 and 28 -75 are great lenses.
I tried both the lenses for a day and found the 17-50 much sharper,
felt more solid.
To cover the 50-70 range I have the Canon 24-105mm as of now.

Reason: Thread merged with existing.
The new Nikon D700 is out... the same D300 body with a full frame sensor for 1000$ more. Seems like a killer camera from specs.
$1200 more - priced at $3000. Puts it $2000 below the professional D3 and around the same range some people expect the Canon 5D Mark II to come in. It'll be interesting to watch the full frame field over the next few years. Wondering when one might be launched in the $1500 range (the 5D is nearly there now but long after its launch)
I am looking for DSLR camera now, short listed ones are Nikon D80, Canon EOS 400D and Canoon 450D. Can you please thow light on me about DSLR cams in this rs. 35,000/- to 45,000/- range which would be best. Also which lens for taking photos in Ocean, hill stations.
Camera mostly used to click photos during travel site seeing trips, Functions mainly for family use but need good one because already we own lot of simple digital cameras like panasonic tz3, fuji s7000, kodak. so need camera which would be used to catch some effective scenes where our existing ones cant. This will be used only by one or 2 people in home.
If u have the moolah, which you mention you do, why not play around with a dslr rather than a P&S, no matter which catagory it belongs to. Better still, you can also check out both the camera's and then decide. We have a canon store here in Gurgaon which allows you to do so, not sure if they've opened the same in Bangy.
