My excellent Olympus OM-10 with manual adapter and Tamron 35-80 is sitting in the window of Wrexham Cameras at 59 ukpounds. I expect my 80-210 and 2x adapter are inside the shop, and quite possibly the slide copier and many other bits that fit it. I know they have several others as well. I sold it to them in May for 40 pounds in part exchange for my latest digicam.

So I expect if you visit a reputable camera shop near you, you'll find unbelievable bargains like that or better, all desperate for good homes, but feeling just like me, an unwanted old fossil.

The F80 is a very nice camera. As I understand it there is no difference between an F80 and an N80 they were named differeently for different markets. Here in the UK it was an F80 in the US I think it was N80.

The N80 and F80 are the same, the N80 being the US version as was mentioned. It can be found for a decent price and is more than capable. I would avoid any of the low end Nikons, the N55 or 50, or the N60, 65 or 70. They are quite limited, and missing many key features (like functionality with VR lenses). It's worth the extra money to pick up the N80. You could also look at the F100, which is a tank of a camera, has an incredible AF and metering system and is a huge value,..often you can find it for a bit over $200, about 1/4 of its former value brand new. Truly a pro-level camera.
