Has anyone heard any rumors of a Nikon D80 upgrade? I have seen/heard the previews for the new Nikon D3 and D300 which got me to wondering if there was a "D90" in the works. I'm consdering buying a D80 in the very near future, but might wait if there is going to be a successor to it which might result in a price drop for the D80. Any thoughts? Thanks

Ofcourse there's a new D80 being developed. But we don't know when it'll come out.
Probably after the winter, during spring, but i'm not sure.

I wouldn't expect to see a huge price drop even when a replacement comes out. Typically supply will have dwindled down, making it difficult to find anyway after the release of a new camera. I certainly wouldn't expect a replacement this year...it would be next spring at the earliest, though I think you'll see another pro body before a D80 replacement, so my thought is sometime next summer. If I needed a camera, I wouldn't wait until then.
