Re: D80 or D90

Of these two, I think the D90 is the better bet.

How about a used D300? Will be in the same price bracket.

Re: D80 or D90

d90 would be the better choice

newer sensor usually means better image quality and higher ISO

owned the d80 before upgrading to d90, didnt regret a moment

Re: D80 or D90

AFAIK the D90 is now out of production, being superseded by the D7000. This means that you might find a D90 at a very good price, or maybe find that they are not easily available.

Warehouse Express are still selling the D90 at 539 body only with free delivery:

Re: D80 or D90

Got a feeling that I've seen the name of Simply Electronics mentioned as an unreliable supplier with poor customer service, so take care.

Interestingly, the UK price is now cheaper than One-Stop, who are also based in Hong-Kong.

For the sake of 20, I think I'd stick with a UK supplier with a good reputation.

Just remembered, was it Rob Barron who had trouble with simply Electronics?
