you will have a little more flexibility processing full frame images than APSC images. but the difference is far less than what you will be gaining going from your D80 to any modern APSC sensor. D80 came out in 2008 and has a 10 MP CCD sensor.

Thanks, yes. The D80 will only take so much processing it seems, and not much room for cropping if needed. I think my iPhone even does better on that score.

Given your stated use case / needs for wildlife and landscape photography in North America's north western forests... Give serious consideration to the extremely rugged 26mp Pentax K-3iii, which is exceptionally good at higher iso values.
