    I have an N80, which I like quite well. It seems to be well made, metering is quite good, exposure is spot-on. My only real concern about the camera is how small it is. I purchased the optional battery pack so it isn't too bad, otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought it.

    This is a (today's) quote from the Nikon Mailing List in regards to this question:

    I emailed Nikon USA & they state that the N(F)80 is still in
    active production & sales. They further state that it has not been
    replaced by the N75.

    Anyway, these are the advantages I found for the N90s:
    * Better build quality (better protection for rain, dust, etc.)
    * Possibility for MF lenses
    * PC-connection to transfer exposure-data to a computer (I heard the software for this was discontinued or something? Can I still find it, and can I find the connection-cable?)

    Advantages for the N80:
    * built-in flash
    * New, so easily obtainable, more warranty, more easy to get it repaired

    Anything else I missed?
    (The AF system isn't very important to me. A simple centre AF (like the N90s) is enough)

    Does anyone has some experience with those cameras?
    I read for example that the N90s isn't so easy to use as the N80. Also that some new lenses don't work with it..

    Thanks in advance,

    F90x wins hands down!!! :-)
    I wholeheartedly recommend it over anything Nikons that is not F5/6 or maybe F100.

    I bought a second hand F90X and think it was my best investment yet. I use it more than my Hasselblad 501c/m (so far)... I don't mind bumping it around and giving it a good workout and it comes with me EVERYWHERE!!! :o)

    I have had the N80 for a few months now and love it. If you want to record exposure time you might try to find an F80s, they can record the exposure between the frames of the images. Its a grey market(imported through a third party) camera but I know B&H carries them, and B&H offers some warranty since you don't have Nikon's warranty on grey market cameras. I know there is a huge debate over grey market equipment but if its a camera thats just not offered any other way I don't see the problem.
