[SOLD] New Nikon D80

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
New Nikon D80 SALE PENDING

Asking Price
$480 shipped

Item Description
.


This Nikon D80 is less than two months old - I've decided to invest in a couple more Nikon lenses, and decided to upgrade the body to the D90 at the same time (no, my K20D + glass will still be my main system by a long shot, don't worry Pentaxians )

It comes with original box, papers, everything, and is indistinguishable from new.

It gets you a superb, responsive body with faster AF speed than my K20D, and an excellent flash system - as we know, Pentax's only real achilles' heels are these two areas.

It opens the door to an expanded LBA - Imagine having the option to buy the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8, a new AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 for $400, A Nikkor 80-200 2.8 for $600, Sigma 150mm macro, the list goes on & on...

The D80 allows the use of any AF Nikon and 3rd-party lens - the D40 and D60 do not allow AF with any lens that does not have an internal motor. (If you've been considering getting a D40, forget it!)

Paired with the $109 (new!) AF-D 50 1.8, this is an indoor sharpshooter of excellent pedigree and utility - and blasted fun.

Comes with free 4Gb SD card.

Photo of camera itself is coming tomorrow, don't have any already uploaded. You can buy conditional to seeing shots of the camera first, of course.

You most certainly can! As I always say, you only need one kidney.


Here are some snaps of the goodies:

If I did not want that D90 so bad I would be all over this...

I don't think it's worth it to switch completely to Nikon unless you at least get
the D300 - IMO, the D90 is no real improvement over the K20D, except in AF
speed and flash. (movie mode to me is a non-issue.)

Where the D80 really shines is as a 2nd body to the k20D system -
fast low-light kid shooter. At $480 basically new, you solve a lot of problems
you've been having, Gus, and still have your K20D system to take the art/portrait shots.

Boy, is this baby fun to play with...

And all the new lens possibilities!

Some more shots from the D80:

(he was "running", AF locked on nicely)



(popped his head in here, able to just 'snap' it quickly)

It's a DX mount, but the body has an internal motor - unlike the D40 or D60, which
rely on motors in the lens to work AF. The $109 50 1.8, for example, does
not have an internal motor and will not work on the D40/60 - on the D80, it shines.

The D80 can focus any AF lens going back to the late 70's, which doesn't help the
old LBA.

No - no in-body shake reduction in any Nikon camera. They stick it in the
lenses, and stick it to the buyers (although the Nikon onsumer zooms are now
coming out with VR.)

As I think you can see from those shots, though, it still does pretty well.

And high ISO performance is at least as good as the K100DS, better than the
K10D, so you can feel free to bump up ISO a stop.

You have a good selling point about (inexpensive) lens availability It's tempting!
