Riccardo, why is it important to you that this friend should not buy a D80? Although the K20D is a decent camera, and does well against the D80, it's not all that big a deal. I would be more inclined to suggest a K-x to your friend if money is a serious consideration, or a K-5 otherwise - there are better choices around, and that is only just the bodies. Lenses are more than half the picture that needs a lot more to add to the discussion...

Riccardo, I have a D80 and a K10D. Guess which camera gets used the most and by FAR the most?

K10D of course!

The D80 is a fine camera and if your friend buys it he will enjoy.

This is why it's important to convince your friends to buy Pentax cameras. Actually you just need to convince your friends to buy Pentax lenses then convince them to let you borrow them.
