The Nikon D80 I bought from Amazon.com Monday night just arrived. Nice. The first surprise is that it’s not as tall as my D70. Good!
Battery arrived with one bar of three on it. Charging it now.
D40 is out of town with Jim for two months so I can’t compare those two directly at the moment. But I can say, compared with the D70, the autofocus of my 50/1.4 is fast. And it wasn’t bad on the D70.
