    Ugh, Nikon, because the best price for a Canon 30D body from a reputable seller is about $1170.

    Because the 1d is what you should buy, as it is > 30d, d70, d80 d90000, 230402d, etc. in your price range.

    Not everyone is, it's those of us who use Canon.

    I have a 20D and love it.

    the 30D is a more competitve camera than the D80,the D70, the camera the D80 is based on was originally made as an entry level camera whilie 30D is more a midrange camera..the 30D gives you faster focusing and more shots per second, I dont know how the D80 handles in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.

    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.
