That's a hell of a deal on a D80!

Yeah it is. Too bad that D80 carries the noisy CCD sensor, darn it all.

I know its not the best DSLR out there, but for someone on a budget, you get a hell of a lot for that price! The D80 can produce better images than 98% of DSLR owners are capable of, IMO.

Hell, I'm still rockin' the D50 (until you guys get together and buy me a D700)! :D

+1 Agreed

Same here except as somebody with way more posts than you I'm well ahead of you in the free D700 stakes although I know I'm well behind Rooz as well.
Anybody know a good, reliable hitman? :D

That sure destroys my D80 resale value. That effectively makes my D90 purchase more expensive.

I'm keeping my D80. It's just not worth it to sell it at the price the market will pay now for a used D80. It'll be my backup. I tried the D90 at B&H yesterday, and although I was heavily leaning towards getting a D90, I am now certain I will be getting a D300 as my next camera body. Video just doesn't outweigh the D300's 51 AF points, rugged hefty body, and watertight sealing.

Does anyone know if they made any change to Auto ISO mode? Like a faster shutter speed? D80 was limited to only 1/125.

Im tempted to go for the D80 tbh but the D90's new sensor is just too tasty to pass. I'd rather save an extra month and enjoy the high iso preformance for the next few years :).

I am so happy I sold my D80 body for $650 used on Craigslist several months ago.

I am so happy I sold my D80 body for $650 used on Craigslist several months ago.Timing is everything! :D

$599/- is one hell of a great deal....hmm....I haven't heard anything over here about the D90 though so I'm guessing the price hasn't dropped yet...I think I might just advice a friend to get the D80 if it comes anywhere close to that $1000 mark over here (a D80 last time I checked was for $1300+ with kit lens) unless they price the D90 really aggressively (like the XS and XSi from Canon).....they're still promoting the D700 as the new camera....

Definitely $30 cheaper than when i got my D80 last month. Even though it's tempting to get it as a backup, my next camera purchase will be a D300 even if the D90 has the same sensor or a faster glass. I'm pretty happy with my D80 so far :D

The Ritz ad in Sunday's paper has the D80 with the new 18-135mm lens for a whooping $899.
