    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

    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...

    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.

    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. :x:
