Supposed to come out today?
i'm only hoping it'll push the price of d70s down further...
Press release is out today but it hits the selves in September, no?
I saw it uses the D200 .94x viewfinder, pretty nice for a camera at the $900 price. Though, it has a 80ms shutter lag, a bit slow compared to the competition :\
Nikon has today put the end to the speculation and announced the new ten megapixel D80 digital SLR. This new camera is the natural successor to the D70/D70s with a refreshed design, user interface and a wide range of new features. Headline improvements are; 10.2 mp CCD, new image processing engine, 3D Color Matrix Metering II, 11-area AF system, configurable Auto ISO, configurable high ISO NR, a larger and brighter viewfinder, in-camera retouching (including D-Lighting), built-in wireless flash commander, SD card storage (with SD-HC support) and the D200's higher capacity battery. The D80 will go on sale in September with a body only price of $999 in the US, £699 in the UK or $1299 in the US, £949 in the UK as a kit with the new 18-135 mm DX lens.
that is one sweet ass kit lens
Sales release date: September 2006
add about a month to that..if its anything like the D200 it will be very hard to get one in september
I'm slighty upset about this, seeing as how I toiled between the 70 and the 50 for months, and as it turns out, I probably could have gotten a 70 afterall...
Im assuming he already bought a D50
You can buy my 70.
I can't wait til the D2x or D2hs replacements, hopefully soon so I can get one cheap!
One of my freinds just got the D2xs, It's quite amazing.
So yeah, just wait till the Canon 3d comes out next month.
I still think if I end up upgrading i'll go straight to the d200. I shot with it this past weekend and love it so much more than my d70.
yeah, canon, LOL
i'd love to...how much do you think I should sell my d70 for with the kit lens and a second battery?
No thanks....what teh hell is Nikon thinking going with SD?
IF I "upgrade" from D70 Ill go for the d200.
I think $500-$550. Or just keep the kit lens and sell the body.
I would sell my D70 for a D80, but the 70 is just my backup body, so I don't even use it as is. Eventually,the D200 will be my backup body, and maybe two years from now, a D9x.
Friend? I thought he bugged the heck out of you?
Firefucker has a D2x, not a D2xS
