Who wins? the nikon d80 or the canon 30d?
which would you choose?
canon 1d. used. yeah.
30d, have it and love it
Ugh, Nikon, because the best price for a Canon 30D body from a reputable seller is about $1170.
30D, fo sho
but the 30d is > d80?
why is everyone so into Canon on OT?
can someone help me understand?
Because the 1d is what you should buy, as it is > 30d, d70, d80 d90000, 230402d, etc. in your price range.
Because it is a real camera?
Go use one.
Not everyone is, it's those of us who use Canon.
I have a 20D and love it.
oops quoted the wrong post, that was in response as to why everyone says canon.
Hard to tell because the D80 is not out yet?
Yes it is, I have one. Ritz shipped out all their orders last Friday or yesterday. Stores should have them by now too.
well if both are at the same price then id go with the 30D, now had you mentioned D200..........
i haven't heard one reason yet.
the 30D is a more competitve camera than the D80,the D70, the camera the D80 is based on was originally made as an entry level camera whilie 30D is more a midrange camera..the 30D gives you faster focusing and more shots per second, I dont know how the D80 handles in comparison with the 30D I honestly would have to play around with both for a while.
Actually, the D80 shares more in common with the D200 than the D50.
The 30D does offer faster continuous shooting, but not faster focusing.
The D80 ergonomics, IMO, are better than the 30D. It also has higher resolution (10MP vs. 8.2MP). High ISO noise is actually comparable, surprisingly.
how's the new kit lens?
ahh I see, thanks for correcting me
as for the d80 kit lens..well at least from what I see it looks like its the mother of kit lenses
If you like the feel and controls of the 30d more than the d80, then get that, Same other way around.
D80 kit lens is fucking retarded amazing btw from what I heard
Our friend Kenny says that the D80 is just a D200 shoved into a smaller body.
There are probably more Canon users on this forum and almost everywhere else since they own ~ 60% of the market in DSLRs.
Thats why Ken Rockwell is a Moron
