    bah fuck that..that would be my primary reason for going with the D80 over the D200

    im also considering the Tamron 28-75 over the nikon..it costs $1000 less than the nikon one and from what I see its quite comparable

    Meh, I'd just use the 17-55 2.8, 28 is too much to start with, and 55-70 i don't really care about

    I already have a 12-24..and (once it is repaired) a 70-200VR I dont know I feel like 17-55 will be too small a range, which is what turned me off from the 17-55 in the start

    As soon as I get the 70-200, and the 17-55, i'm tossing the 18-200, and getting a 12-24 is pointless as I see it, It's got way too much chromatic error, and it's only F4, and its not built like a tank like the 17-55. I'll keep flattening out my fisheye pictures, and it works great from there. If I didint have the fish, I supposed i'd look into the 12-24.

    Yeah, The program was discontinued because of wait times, People that paid for stuff in advance wouldnt get it for over 10-14 weeks :ugh: So It was discontinued by nikon, I know 4 people personally that submitted and paid for the 18-200 and nikon returned their money to them like 8 weeks later because they coulndt provide them :riaa:

    looks like im going to have to go with the backup plan..which is raise my compusa network points (I buy all the stuff for the place I work) until I get enough for a few gift certificates..then order it via compusa business with a nice 750$ discount

    My mom just bought a D80, and I'm heading back tomorrow, so I'll play with it a bit.

    Been scouring Ebay and craigslist for a Nikon 17-35 f/2.8 in my price range with no luck whatsoever.... ugh.



    As for the 12-24, I have the Tokina version, and it's very very close to the Nikon at half the price (as much as a Nikon/Nikkor whore as I am, I say this), and there are just some shots that you can only do that are at 12mm and wider, I think it's worth it. And f/4 is PLENTY fast for a super wide like that. The hyperfocal distance is pretty short, so you'll get all sorts of stuff in focus at as little as f/4.5 or so....

    Anyone have a 17-35 f/2.8 they want to sell me for cheap? ;)

    The D70 has more dynamic range.

    My review: It's just like the D70, with a bigger and better screen and more resolution. Needs good lenses.
