Found one with kit lens for $500. Is this a good deal or no?
thats a good deal I would say
Ya, it's not a bad deal. As we said in your original thread...I'd try to find a D70 and then you can invest in better class that you won't get rid of. But the D80 is certainly a capable camera without a doubt.
l33t will be in here any moment to tell you to get the 35mm and not the 50mm 1.8.
50mm 1.8 is a peice of donkey shit
haha, just going with the lens that is offered with it. I know nothing about lenses, lol
Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX VR lens It's this lens.
Yeah that's a pretty good deal. l33t will probably come in and tell you how much it sucks and to get a D90 + 35mm 1.8 instead (he says the 50mm 1.8 sucks)
get the 50mm 1.8
50mm 1.8 >>>>>>>>> Dog Shit >>>>>>> 35mm 1.8
heinz hated his d80 for various reasons
jared loved his d80
dont think u can go wrong for $500 and a lens
That's my thinking. If I hate it, I can make my money back easily on ebay or here I'm sure so I'm not worried. Hopefully this one will work out unlike the last xsi I tried buying.
My D80 is still my back up. Go for it.
got mine for 400....then bought a 17-50 2.8 and a 50mm 1.4. not a bad package for 1k
I sold mine almost a year and half ago for $550 (just body). Not a bad deal I'd say if it comes w/ the lens.
yeah, it was owned by a professional/amateur photographer who supposedly took meticulous care of it. Just hoping this one works out unlike the last one.
I still use mine. still not ready to upgrade even though I want to
the 50mm 1.8 is tits at f9-f14 if you have sufficient lighting to get there
my 50/1.8 is tack sharp at f/2.2 and up
when it focuses
