Thoughts on the D80 versus D200, please
3 months ago

I have been thinking about getting a DSLR for a while and with a cruise coming up in February, I have started shopping now so I could learn how to use the camera before cruise.

I have a couple of lenses from my Nikon film camera: a Nikon 28-80 AF and a Tamron 75-300, model #872D.  I thought it would be worthwhile to try to find a camera that would work with these lens. After a lot of research, it looks like the D200 is a pretty good fit for me.

However, I noticed that the D80 is pretty comparable image quality wise to the D200 and it is a far amount lighter.

Does anybody have any observations about using one versus another of these cameras?

Thanks.
