Re: D80 as a Point & Shoot cam...

It took me awhile to get used to the D80 coming from a D100 and D70s.

However, my D80 combined with the 18-200VR lens is producing some excellent shots for me.

I don't have them up to post but I recently took some low level lighting shots at the Lion King show at Disney and was happy with the way the low lighting shots came out. Good enough to publish IMO. Later on the Safar ride which is extremely bumpy, I got the best shots' I've ever taken on that ride from my D80/lens combo. Shot some pictures of a lion from about 150 yds away while moving at 5 mph over a bumpy road and they came our almost perfect.

So, I highly recommend the D80. I doubt I could have gotten the same results from my D70s at least I had never gotten similar results in the past.
