Tip- Buy the F100 or the F5 or 6, for that price, don`t complaint.

Now, that`s a good piece of advice!

And your comparison also sucks, how can you compare those two machines?
One, a flagship of Canon, the other one, a semi-professional body from Nikon, ridiculous!
I live in Helsinki/Finland, I can asure it`s cold enough, have worked with the "little wonder" outdoors with -25c and never shut down, maybe your one was a lemon?

The bottom-line is, for the price, the F80 it`s the big bargain of that class of machines.
