Are you talking about the 18-200mm VR lens? I wasn't aware that they were going to offer D80 kits with that lens.

B&H has the D80 in stock for $995 which is about as low as you will get from a legitimate dealer. The 18-200mm lenses are out of stock just about everywhere with projected deliveries of December 31. One way you can get the VR lens right now is to buy the D200 kit for around $2400.

yep, i am talking about the VR.Right now I have a D70 with the 18-70 and the 28-200 so it would be nice to consolidate and gain the VR.I am going to check B&H for the D80.*

Put yourself on circuitcity.com email notification for the 18-200 vr lens. I added myself to the email notification on Monday and got an email that the lens was back in stock on Thursday. I order both the lens and the D80 with $7 3day shipping and both items arrived on Friday! Talk about fast shipping! Jae

I just looked in circuit city's weekly mailer and they have the d80 on sale with a 2gb SD card for free. Since I just bought mine from them, I will be taking the ad and my receipt for my free memory card! What a great deal! Jae

Yes, but it is the kit with a lens. Also I can't find where it specifies which memory card you get. I do see that for $50 extra they will upgrade the card to a Sandisk Extreme III.

Got the D80, body only. The AF is faster than on the D70 and seems to "hunt" less.*Indoor shots "seem" sharper than on my d70. Maybe the focus is slighly more precise? I need to play around some more.

It has an 11 point AF, compared to 5 with the D70. I've found my shots with it much sharper as well.
