I have found a D80 body used for 550.00 and there is a couple different used lens that I can pick up depending on what I decide on doing. Or I can get the D90 and the 18-105 lens for around 1300. So there is quite difference in price. I know that the D90 is superior but for a noob like myself is the D90 worth the extra money I know that if I spend the extra dollars I probably will not have to upgrade the body for a long time. I've done some reading and looked at the D5000 also which I could get for about 1100 with a kit lens. I really like the feel of the D90 and have yet to get my hands on a D80 still deciding whether or not to go check out the used one. What are the differences in the D80 and D90. And is there another camera that might be a better suit for a first time buyer. We will be using the camera when we travel and just random events. Any help would be great.
