Yeah i said the d90, as its what i was going to try and get if i didnt choose the K7, i wish i had now, seeing nikons very nice image quality, you were very lucky to get one for 200 euro's though, i'm mega excited for you...bargain..

can i ask, what method of resizing you do for your photo's here, as they have retained a real good pin sharp feel to them, even as small as they are...would be very interested to know..

It's also a very nicely laid out slr, i like it, i just dont get the same feel with my K7, i like the build, but i can already see differences in !Q from what you have posted.

thanks nikonian

Hi Shaun!

Well they are all medium photo's from my flickr page , i upload them there from the jpeg's and flickr resizes that automatically even in medium format you still see the amazing qualtiy

yeah i know that the D90 is the succesor of the D80 , but even if they gave me money to buy it i would bring it back and buy a d80 (if i had not done that allready)

i am pleasant surprised of the D80 thought that my files would only be bigger and not increase that much in qualtiy too

Me a very happy camper ;)

Hi Nikonian & Shaun. I've had my D80 for a couple of years or so, and its the best piece of kit that i've ever used ! I wouldn't bother with a D90 as I have absolutely no use for "Live view" or "Video Capture". The sheer quality of the results from the D80 completely overwhelm any camera that I have used previously, including 35mm film cameras. I shoot at low ISO's mostly, (around 200iso) & using the 16 - 85 Nikon zoom the sharpness, clarity & exposure are brilliant. You won't regret buying this camera, good luck, & happy shooting.http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif
