Great article! I must say I LOVE my D80. My husband says if I could take it to bed with me I would. He might be right, but I don't think I'm that bad.

well, I love the D80 as well... I do have one complaint though... I've noticed that the focus screen gets dust on it MUCH easier than the D50 has. Although I've upgraded to a D2H now, the D80 was a great camera, I just wish the AF screen wasn't so sensitive to dust. The problem is that its open on the sides of the AF screen, whereas the D50 was completely closed on all sides.

I had my mind pretty much on the Canon rebel/400D/450D(for my first DSLR), but seeing the reviews and features/ergonomics, i plan to get perhaps the Alpha series but more interested in D80 until i read this post by bmwlover0725, is this serious? the dust thing on the AF, why does this happen? can u give an example? any other user have the problem and would like to comment, i would be greatful.

I've not experieced dust problems with my D80. At least not external. The sensor will need periodic clearing of dust bunnies. That is a fairly common trait with most dslr's.

I'm not 100% sure what he is referring to when he mentions the focus screen or AF screen either.

I have my D80 for almost 1 1/2 year now, and I had to take it in twice only - both times after I had changed lenses in extremely windy conditions. They blew the dust spec off instantly, and I didn't have to leave the camera there.
