I looked at a bunch od DSLRs last night. Pentax, Sony, Canon and Nikon. The nicest camera I held was the Nikon D90. It felt like a camera not a toy. I have not handled a D80, although I suspect the build quality is similar to the D90. I am looking for a camera that feels and handles like a real camera (heavy and well built), that is reliable and takes great pictures. I am not interested in gadgetry - just a solid well-built camera that takes great pictures. I don't get excited about megapixels either. I intend to get a simple 50 1.4 lens and call it a day. I don't care about brighter screens, movie making, etc. I just want a good camera. In this regard do I need to look at the D90 or will the D80 do the trick. If I can save a few bucks that would be great. I have seen some used D80s at KEH for a few hundred dollars less than the D90.
