    No, the D80 price already dropped when the D90 came out. The D80, (if you like it's exposure metering system) is a great buy right now

    Darn happy with mine, I have had it just going on a year now. takes all my old Nikon glass, and works like a champ.

    Sorry about the double post, but I cant figure out how to deleat the first post
    Darn happy with mine, I have had it just going on a year now. takes all my old Nikon glass, and works like a champ. no geo-tagging like some latter models, but one can not have everything. As for price drop. I am not seeing much happening in there.

    Not because of the D5000, that's a D40/D40x/D60 replacement. The D80's replacement was the D90.
