You might find this informative:

http://theonlinephotographer.typepad...camera-le.html

(No, I don't have an interest in the website; the guy is just knowledgeable and I like the way he writes ).

The whole article is a bit long, but worth the read.

No problem on the referral, it's my favorite blog.

My problem is, those cats are always about 12 rungs above the ladder I'm clinging to . But I'm learning a bit and often it's fun to read.

(And I need serious psychological help. I've got a bid in at B&H photo to trade in my perfectly usable D70s on a D200. Lord, what am I thinking? Jeeps and cameras. I should just take up an inexpensive hobby, like collecting aircraft carriers...).

Sigh.

That's IS without a doubt dust on your low pass filter. I don't recommend blowers because it just blows the dust around to settle in another place. Plus if you've never cleaned your low pass filter, then that spot probably came with the camera and the little gears and such splatter factory lubricants around the inside of the camera body when it's new. I'm not a fan of blowers, although I do own one, but it's never gotten my sensor really clean. I use the Copperhill Cleaning Method. It's a wet cleaning method, but it DOES work!!!!!! The first few times are nerve racking.....kinda like brain surgery, but once you get the hang of it.....it's only mildly annoying. The guys at Copperhill Images are quick to get back to you and talk you through the process if you have any trouble.....Like I did. Once you get it right your sensor will be cleaner that it was the day you bought your camera! The best test to see how dirty your sensor (low pass filter) is, is to stop your camera down to f22 or tighter and take a picture of the sky. You'll really be surprised at how much dust you have. Check out copperhillimages.com

I've been watching lenses on ebay. I think I understand when something is described as, "no fungus".

What does it mean when a lens is described as having "no oil'?
Is there a seal someplace inside that can leak oil?
If a lens has oil, is it readily repairable?
Is there another online site with lenses for sale besides ebay?

"A lens that has been subject to extreme heat can develop an oily aperture. Grease from the focus gear liquifies in the heat and works its way centrally into the aperture area where it wreaks havoc."

Source: http://reviews.ebay.com/How-To-Detec...00000001005542

Just a personal opinion, I'd stay away from lenses that have oil, or fungus, or creep, or...and or...and or .

B&H has an excellent reputation and sells used gear out of New York:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/catego...Equipment.html

I've dealt with them and have had good service. (Although my recent attempt to trade in my D70s on a new D200 was less than a rousing success, much to the relief of my wife ).

http://www.keh.com/onlinestore/home.aspx has an excellent reputation but I've not personally dealt with them yet.

Whaddya lookin' for?

Congratulations! One of my kids has the D80 and loves it.

Thanks for the offer on checking on a D200 - but I promised the hunny that I'd hold off until I get the flooring in her home office replaced .

She's been pretty patient (I got the 18-200 VR zoom and the Canon G9 since January) but she's about all done with me getting new gear . When B&H lowballed my trade I took it as a sign from the divorce lawyer gods and ordered in the wood flooring she wants .

I think, in the interest of domestic tranquility, that I'll stick with the D70s for awhile longer this year.

I but I really do appreciate the offer!

If you decide on the D80, post some pics!

edit - have you decided on lenses for the '80?

i think you made a wise choice to wait on getting a new camera

when i went on the dell website to see if they had nikon stuff i only found the kits being sold instead of just the body however jarrod (my brother in law) said that if other places sell just bodies then they can too. hes suppose to check into it today or tomorrow.

My boss told me a few days ago that my D300 is on the way. I get to keep my D2hs as well. It will be cool to shoot two cameras again.
