Is the lens mount on the D80 using the same 4 screws in plastic threads that the D70 used?

thanks in advance for info.

edit: as usual I did not explain myself well. I meant to ask if the mount point (the stainless steel ring on the d70) for lenses was more securely attached to the body on the d80. I had a d70 that I liked until I dropped it about 3 feet with a heavy lens attached and stripped the threads in the plastic body where the lens mount attached to the body (don't assume vest shoulder loops are foolproof when hiking). I'm trying to figure out if I should stay with Nikon or look to other manufacturers for something more robust for my type of photography.

Any lens that can be used with a D70 can be used on a D80 (with the same functionality), yes.
