    ?? The SB-80DX is an older style flash released in 2002 (link HERE).

    First, I honestly think this doesn't belong in this section, its more of a beginners kinda question, and it is too general to know how to answer.

    He wants people to post their experience with a D80 and SB-80DX? IMHO, a simple google on a D80 review and SB-80DX review would best answer this, I think.

    You will have no TTL or wireless triggering ala CLS. It's a bad choiceto got the SB-80. Get an SB-600 or 800.

    I've had the SB 80 DX for several years. Just bought a D80.

    Sw1tchFX is right. You'll have no TTL.

    I'd recommend the SB600 or 800. (In fact, I'm heading out tomorrow to get the 600 myself)

    I'll continue to use the SB80 as a slave when I'm working in the studio, but not as my primary.
