Thanks for the pics. Looks like the D80 will be the same size as the D50. Iwas researching for my first dSLR and had narrowed my choices to the D50 and Canon Rebel XT. If it has built-in VR, it will be close to my perfect camera. I don't mind waiting til next year for availability, since my Coolpix 8400, is adequate for the duration.

dont count on it... as i and others have said, nikon makes a lot of money of their VR line lenses, so why would they make them obsolete by putting it in the body?

also, I may be wrong, but VR is only likely to work well on a long lens in the lens, not on the body. In the lens it is compensating for angular movement with an angular movement. On the body it is trying to compensate with increasingly large positional shifts with longer lenses - I don't think it will be effective.

as keith said
+ the sensor will be out of the center of the focus circle the lens makes. so it will give you worse quality

edit:
and about the pictures, why does it have a canon shaped flash :O
and nooooooo nikon! dont place the delete button somewhere else
and it seems to take SD's again

In camera VR is not happening. However, Minolta/sony and most recently Pentax have proven that in body stabilization can and does work.

i agree that that delete button looks awkward and misplaced.

can anyone guess the price of new D80. will it be under $1000, as said in the teaser.
Which canon model will it compete? :?

it will probably compete against the 30d, but in the pricerange of 350d-20d
as allways with nikon models, they've been cheaper then the canons
