I'm not a professional photographer, but I love taking good quality pictures. Please bare in mind that this will be a review from someone that doesn't know a lot of professional camera terms. This review will be based on my experience with the camera.
This was the first SLR i've had the privilege of purchasing and I will never go back to a normal digital camera again. This was way more than I expected, being only used to standard digital cameras, all the buttons were quite a bit confusing at first. But even with all the button confusion the picture quality doesn't lie. This takes HIGH quality photos, they look professional if you get a good shot which you do most of the time with the shutter speed. The body is also incredibly lightweight compared to other slrs'. After reading the manual and playing around it was generally easy to learn the aperture, white balance and other features.
All in all the D80 is amazing and I can't fault it, however, I wouldn't recommend it for first time users or people that aren't really keen on learning and using all it has to offer. For the price you really are paying for all of its features to get the best quality picture possible for your needs. Taking this in mind if you want to start taking professional quality pictures this is the camera for you. It really does have it all.
Summary: Professional quality camera, although very expensive and a lot to learn feature-wise
