Basically shooting kids/family/sports stuff...like my kids' soccer games and whatnot. All I have left from my Nikon D70S days is a 50mm 1.8 (which I love). I'm browsing ebay today with a budget of around $300 (maybe a bit more).

If I'm lucky, I can get a D80 with battery and charger and use my 50mm.

Or I can go with a D70S, which I've owned before, and possibly get it with an 18-70 or another non-fixed length lens to go with my 50mm.

I'm leaning towards the D70S right now. Keep in mind these are literally just family shots, maybe a few 8x10's printed, but mostly just a lug-around-and-shoot-the-kids camera.

Obviously a D80 with an included lens will blow me out of the $300 range.
