have had frinds that are a little into photography but not a major hobby. i recently joined a local car club and are needing help deciding what camera would be best. im looking to spend 2 plus grand. but are looking 600-1300. a bud of mine has the nikon d60 and loves it but i had though about the d80 and didnt know what the major diffrences were. i love to capture self portraits, automobiles, and landscapes.
