Good price for a D80, would probably go for a eos 450 for about the same money though.

Voted hot
#2
This is a superb camera, I have just upgraded mine to a D90 but I had some real quality pictures from this. I used to be a Canon person back in the film days but only Nikons for me now. I guess its a personal choice to start with because you become committed due to the costs and lenses, etc

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to move up into real photography. It caters for all skill levels with a twist of a knob. If you want to know anything about the camera just shout, if I know the answer I'll reply and if I dont I am sure there are plenty of experts out that will...:thumbsup:

I paid more than this over a year ago for a lesser spec kit and the exchange rate is making it dearer all the time..

I`ve been looking at upgrading for nearly a year now and have been waiting for the best price to suit my pocket.
It has been a toss up between the D80 and the Canon450.I know the D90 has replaced this one,but I think this is a real bargain.
I`ve ordered it and it will be here Monday,so If I have any probs I`ll drop you a PM.

no problem mate... I am sure you will be amazed at the quality both in the kit and the results, get yourself a class6 sdhc card as well, it does help..

Does this come with a VR lens or this that just available for the D90?

Does a VR lens make a great deal of difference?
#6
any vouchers use for this deal?
#7
Heat added. I have a D50 and that is a superb camera so I know this model will be.

Pretty sure this is not a VR lens and from what I am told not really worth while but I have never tried one. :thumbsup:
#9
Personally i prefer the Olympus E system after going off the Canons at SLR level. Good price for this set up tho.

Might help squeeze a bit more out.

The 18-135mm lens isn't VR. VR is definitely useful and gives sharper pics when the light is a little lower - that would be all the time in the UK then ;)

Also consider the D60 which is available with the superb little 18-55VR lens and can be picked up for about £355. The D80 is 2.5years old which is a long time in digital camera years. The D60 being newer gets better results out of the digital sensor (better dynamic range). I've used both and much prefer the D60.
#12
After much reviewing and playing around, I chose this over the Canon. I'm really glad I did. I've had one for a little over twelve months now, and I can highly recommend it. A super-hot deal imho.

The D60 only has 3 focus areas, which I felt to be insufficient (the D80 has 11). The D60 didn't feel as sturdy as the D80 either. The D80 is a better class of camera when compared with the D60. Horses for courses though, I guess.
#13
D60 compare to D80? D80's len is MUCH better than 18-55VR, even no VR.
D80 is two half years old, BUT still much better than D60, little better than D450. THIS PRICE, YOU SHOULD NOT WAIT.
also, you can check the price for these two lens,18-55VR is much cheaper
#14
All camera prices have been going up due to the exchange rate, this is hot and no mistake.
#15
Fantastic deal. if I didnt have my money tied up in canon lenses I would be buying one right now

Sounds good but you just dont see many proffesionals walking about with Olympus cameras... this has to say something about the quality.... imo.
Point is not whether this is the best camera in the world but if it is a good price for this item and I am pretty sure its as cheap as it has been for the last year...
#18
Had the D80 for a couple of years now and it's been a great bit of kit - for this price it would be wrong not to vote it hot

Totally disagree. Nothing to do with quality and everything to do with marketing. Canon are so aggressive in the market they supply free gratis. Olympus are used by most professional photographers, by that i mean those that take proper pictures and not craparazzi. Olympus image quality is widely recognised as the best on the market.

At the level we're talking about here Olympus are competitive. Once you get to 'professional cameras' they are not - they don't make anything like the D3(x) or EOS 1D(s), though they do make some very nice lenses. A pro is not going to shift brands all that easily, and certainly not beyond the Nikon/Canon pairing, barring specialities.

You obviously don't follow the pro photographers such as war journalist Morten Hvaal or the likes of R. Cleveland Aaron, real world photographers. I understand where you are coming from but the 4:3 system is much more accessible to film pro's.

You are right, I have always made it a rule when buying any kit that I would rather buy a cheaper range from a top manufacturer than a top of the range from a lesser make.

Andreas Feininger (1906-1999): 'Photographers — idiots, of which there are so many — say, “Oh, if only I had a Nikon or a Leica, I could make great photographs.” That’s the dumbest thing I ever heard in my life. It’s nothing but a matter of seeing, and thinking, and interest. That’s what makes a good photograph.'
#24
Good price. voted hot, I got mine for £339.97 from PC World in January 09 with the same kit lens. But if it's at £489 I'll go for the Canon 450D which is more up-to-date.
#25
I have always used Canon until I recently bought the D90, what a phenominal camera. I will never go back to Canon and for anyone considering this D80 or the Canon 450, go into Jessops and feel them both. I did this when purchasing the D90 and it felt far superior to the 450 and 40d from Canon. Nicon for me now thanks.....

To be fair mate I dont think anyone has claimed that this camera would help them take great photographs. The whole point of getting a good camera is reliability of results in any conditions. Also the more popular a manufacturer is, the more third party items are available for specialist applications, we dont all sit around just waiting for sunsets!
As I said before it is a personal thing the same as some people stick with a certain car/motorcycle manufacturer regardless.
I would also add that photographs are an art form which is purely individual, I know whenever I am out I am taking photographs they are to please me, I enjoy taking them and then editing them, if anyone else likes them its a bonus if they dont I dont care, so are they good photographs? :whistling:

Nope, there were in most PC Worlds. There were 5 in the Leeds Beeston one.

It was listed in the PC World Clearance thread

Of course it is going to be superior in price than the 450.

You can't try the D80 in Jessops anymore as it's discontinued. But I can tell you it feels great, but the technology has moved on a bit (but not much).

I agree with you... choosing a camera is really a personal thing. I just posted this as a reminder to people not to choose certain camera thinking that it'll automatically make you a pro. And just because pros use Canon or Nikon doesn't mean anything. As far as I know, most entry level and enthusiast level (as they call it) dSLRs are pretty much similar in terms of image quality that they can produce.

Happy Shooting!:thumbsup:

They were until last week still doing the D80 in Currys Digital. I compared it to the D90 they had in Jessops. A better comparison with the D90 is the Canon 40d, but imho the Nikon beats in hands down. Currys themselves were compairing the D80 to the 450. You know Currys, the place we all go for photographic advice. ;-)
