Seems to me that they're selling a D80 with a lot of throw-away accessories to inflate the price. There's no info on the 3 "PRO" lenses, the tripod, the camera case, or the memory. If this were a REALLY good deal, they'd fill in all the details, but they haven't.

You may be buying a nice camera along with a bunch of worthless junk.

Edit: Sorry. The lenses are described on the webpage. I didn't scroll down far enough.

Adorama has the D80 body for $875, and those two Sigma lensesare only available as a package which generally sells at on-line retailersfor $259 along with a gadget and maybe a few other nicknaks.

The lenses are junk. This is NOT a good deal. The camera is good, but little else in this deal will be worth keeping.

Wow, That's pretty cheap and they did show show description about the lens, memory...

But if it is me. I will not get any camera from E-bay or mail order. Unless your deal with them before. I like going to the shop, checking it before I paid.

Hi, Low-life!

I believe the offer is dubious. If you'd ask me about the lenses, my answer would be -

Just take your time, look for a reliable store and buy the D 80 there.

Good luck!!

I guess you won't be happy until you throw your money away...
