I've got a friend who uses this camera and she loves it. I've actually used it a few times and liked it. I have a Canon, but I must say that I put my hands around the new Nikon D700 during training today at work, and snapped a few pics...I was speechless. that baby was amazing!!!
Yep..the D700 is the very, very nice. But also pretty expensive to get into. I only had to sell rifle, a welder and my current D200 setup to get the body and a my 17-55 and 10.5 lenses to get a new 24-70 lens.
The D80 is a great camera and probably one of the better buys out there....enjoy and post some pics
