    Stay away from those kits with all the accessories, you dont need them.

    I actually need the tripod, lense, bag, and wide angle lense.

    I am a point shoot digital guy and have no idea how much everything cost with the DSLR's. Is there a better price out there?

    The accessories in those packages are usually junk. The camera and the lens is the only thing that is going to last. That wide angle lens is generic and won't give you very good image quality.

    The camera itself with the 18-55mm VR lens is $900 at B&H http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/541241-REG/Nikon_9483_D80_SLR_Digital_Camera.html
    You can also get a good high speed memory card for like $25+ from there also. Look around on that website for everything you are looking for, because it has some of the lowest prices around.

    I would be weary of any EBay "kit" deals. When I was shopping for a body, I found many of these EBay kit dealers belong to the same group of New York vendors that has such bad reps at resellerratings.com.

    Personally, I prefer B&H - clicky in upper right of this page. They have not messed up any of my orders so I stick with them.

    Adorama and Amazon are other good sources.

    Ya, those accessories are crap and will just not get used. Those tripods will barely hold you camera, and those wide angle "lenses" KILL image quality, and another example is those card readers will fall apart and those cleaning supplies are just to make you think your getting a deal.

    I've been dealing with B&H since before the Internet existed and I've found them to be extremely ethical. Not always the lowest price but that's not my sole criteria.

    yes, be worried and don't focus on "deals"; otherwise, you will most likely end up with FAR less than what you expected, if that much....

    take your time and thoroughly research the essential equipment you need, then source from trusted dealers, B&H, Adorama, etc......their prices may not be "deals", but you can be assured that what you do get is the real thing and not a collection of trinkets

    Good info everyone. I guess I will keep shopping for the D80 other places.

    I am most concerned about having a camera and lenses that will allow me to take lanscape and architechtural pics. I want a lense(s) that will allow me to get pics at a wider angle...

    I would love to get this stuff now and then add other lenses as they become necessary, but for now having a camera where I can start taking high quality pics is my main concern. I want to keep this all under $1,000. Suggestions for lenses?

    Quite honestly if you can find a price more than a dollar or two less than B&H then it'll likely be a dicky deal.

    There are far more important things that simply the lowest price; customer support, consistency, great products are just the first things that come to mind.
