I have been drooling over the D80 ever since I handled one the other night. (It is one of 4 cameras I was evaluating for purchase.) I was perusing the 'net to get some prices and a couple of mail-order sites said that Nikon has discontinued the bundle with the 18-135 lens in favor of a smaller 18-55. One reason I liked that camera so much was the wide range, it is perfect.

Does anybody know if this is true? If it is, I would hate to be pushed into buying this combo while I cannot afford it. And how good are these lenses?

Don't know if it is true, but you may be able to buy the D80 body only and then buy the 18-135mm lens sepatately.

Darn!

I was looking to buy a D80 Kit with the 18-135mm next February.

I see that they're still at our local camera store, too. Since I saw this new bundling on 2 different sites, I can only assume that others will be there as well. I had planned on saving a little more money before I take the plunge, too, but I may end up putting a desposit on this particular kit. Time will tell.
