Nikon D80 - did I make a good choice? Is there a better choice for under $1000?
This is my first SLR purchase since my Nikon F801 for college back in the 90s and am told that the D80 should be able to make use of my old lenses, so that played a part in my choice. I intend to use it for hobby-purposes and take some photography classes to advance what I already know.
After reading some of the threads here on RFD, I realize now that my camera is actually a couple of years longer into the market than I originally thought and may be soon on it's way to obsolescence. I fear I may go through buyer's regret within a couple of months if they release a newer model, resulting in a drastic price drop of what I thought was a good deal (I know, it's the nature of the beast).
Thanks to Future Shop's 14 day policy, not only can I return my purchase if unsatisfied, but I can also opt for a price adjustment should a better deal from a competing store arise.
I'm looking to get the best deal I can, so I ask you:
- does anyone know of a better deal in the Toronto area (and surrounding GTA) for the D80 with the above mentioned kit?
- is anyone aware of a better DSLR camera in the sub-$1000 range?
- or have I made a good choice at a decent price and should be happy with my purchase?
Thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions!
