Re: Preliminary report on D80

I wonder whether it's worthwhile to have a one to one exchange of a second hand S3 pro with my newly acquired D80. I was waiting for the price of the S3 pro to drop, but alas it was discontinued. Then the D80 appeared on the market and suddenly the second hand S3 pro is selling for the same price of the new D80.

I had the D80 for a few days, and I think it's not a bad camera at all. Faster read write and focusing. Nice viewfinder and large screen. Only in the area of IQ does it lose out to the S3 pro, but it's IQ has improved, DR is better than S2 pro. Spent a couple of days at the Botanical Garden to get acquainted with it and a few shots (PP) to show:
