I really think these modern plastic bodies are tougher than people give them credit for. I've been using a D80/D90 for years now and have never had a single issue as far as body durability is concerned. The D80 in particular went through some rough times being dropped on concrete as well as getting into a tug-of-war with a camera thief while traveling. I was holding it by the lens while the thief gave a few full-force yanks on the camera strap, meaning the mount was bearing the full force of the tug-of-war and it held up fine.

There is plastic, and plastic. My old d70 still surprises me with the high build quality compated to any consumer electronics other than Apple.
