Nikon D80

The good: Good build quality; top LCD screen to display settings; in-camera editing functions; intuitive user interface; multiple exposure mode; supports SD high-capacity memory cards; snappy performance; good image quality with noise showing up at only ISO 1,600 and beyond.

The bad: Slower top shutter and flash-sync speed compared with D70s; bundled software does only basic RAW conversion; slight barrel distortion at the wide end of kit lens.

The bottom line: The Nikon D80 hits the sweet spot between the entry-level and midrange dSLR market and will appeal to photographers looking for an all-rounder with a range of useful features.
