Nikon Nikon D80 Black 10.2 MP Digital SLR Camera Outfit includes AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF Lens & 2.5" LCD

The D80 powers up in only .18 seconds and captures a picture with an imperceptible shutter lag time of just 80 milliseconds. A new 11-area auto-focus system detects focus with superb precision and can even track a moving subject across the frame. A powerful built-in Speedlight is compatible with Nikon's Creative Lighting System. The Nikkor lens offers image stabilization, and the D80 is also compatible with Nikon's extensive selection of AF Nikkor lenses, as well as the new DX Nikkor lenses.

Review 1 for Nikon D80 Black 10.2 MP Digital SLR Camera Outfit includes AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF Lens & 2.5" LCD

Very good camera for Nikon lovers

Or for a newbie. It's pretty much the d200 for about a $1000 less. It doesn't have the magnesium body of the D200 or the weather seals, or a full frame CCD but controls are alike and has the same megapixel count.
For beginners this camera may seem a bit daunting. There are 2 lcds that split the camera's information between them. The top LCD is the usual for an SLR but could be confusing. There are a LOT of buttons. Also confusing at first, though what that really means is that the most common adjustments can be done by the push of their own button, unlike the D40x where you have to dig through menus to get ISO and WB.
This camera is a good bit heavier than the D40x but can use the full line of nikon lenses. As with most DSLRs this one uses a small sensor so the lenses' ranges should be multiplied by 1.5. So the lens that comes with it is the equivalent of 27-202mm on a regular 35mm non digital SLR. This gives you super zooms, but also makes wide angle lenses a bit tougher to find.
It is an incredible camera and a bit easier to hold than the Canon XTi (it's main competitor). It costs a few hundred more and for me it is a better camera. For people with really large hands (like me) the extra battery pack extension makes it even more comfortable to hold, though it is more useable than the Canon without it.
Pretty much you'll love this camera, whatever you choose. It's great for a beginning hobbyist. It does waaaay more than the average camera user needs, but will reward the dilligent. If you have Nikon lenses you'll want to stick with this one. If you have Canon lenses you'll want the XTi. For newbies, you just need to pick a brand 'cause you'll probably be sticking with it for years to come (unless you have a wad of cash to spend on identical lenses for different brands).

My husband bought this for me for christmas and it's the best digital camera I ever had. The pictures are so clear. When I use the zoom lense I can take pictures of wildlife from a distance and I can see the wiskers on the animals faces. I would recommend this camera for the professionals and the amateur like myself

The Nikon D80 is everything I dreamed of and more. Easy to use as a snap-shot camera, fantastic for professional settings.
However, It is lacking as an astro-photography camera in which very long exposures are needed. The BULB setting doesn't work as the ''bulb'' of older manual film cameras in which a cable was screwed into the shutter. Such cameras would keep the shutter open until you released it. Often such photography requires several hours. With this camera, the bulb setting is only good for 30 minutes.
Purchasing remote triggers (infrared and USB control) are really essential if you need this camera for astro-photography, and even then, you are still limited on the duration.
