I'm sure. I thought it was REALLY odd as well but here is the reply I got from Nikon Canada.

Dear John,

Thank you for your request for more information on F80. Nikon Canada Inc. appreciates your business.

Yes the camera has been discontinued. The F75 has replaced it. "

It was Black's Cameras that initially told me they no longer stocked it as the model had been discontinued.
