Question: Between rock and hard place...

I'm new to DSLR. Have for years owned Canon (A-1, AE-1). I'm in the graphics
business, and use Photoshop on a daily basis, so retouching is second nature to me.
The pixel issue should not be a problem for what I do (D40–6.0, or D60-10.0).
It seems, from sample pixs I've seen, blowing up in P-shop, getting in tight
on subjects for detailed touching up should be okay. What's your opinion?

I'm on a limited budget at the moment (aren't we all), and need to get a DSLR which
will stay with me for the long haul. Had to borrow a friend's Panasonic Luminex;
I was in a bind; had to use it. Lousy results. Too low res for retouching.

If there are any graphics people or pro photographers out there, who use either a
D 40 or D60, your suggestions would be more than welcome. Which camera should
I get? I've kind of had it with Canon.
