    Looking to get a Nikon D80 and have found several combo deals, was wondering if anyone had any good dealers to go to on the net?

    Beware of unknown dealers who offer deals too good to be true. At a minimum always check them at Reseller Ratings.

    You can't go wrong with B & H. I've bought numerous items from them, both online and in person and they've been great.

    I deal with B&H also. No complaints so far.

    Make sure you check out the warranty info on the camera before you commit to buying.

    How do you figure $106? Their website shows $670, provided of course you ever get it. Reseller ratings shows them with 3.3 out of 10. That means "run". ;)

    It is either refurbished or a gray product. Stay away from that one.

    Beach Camera or BuyDig (sister stores) have great prices, good customer service and high ratings. I've dealt with them many times and was satisfied each time.

    found several deals on ebay that the others just can't touch, all say USA models, not refurb, not gray models, am I missing something?
    D80 with two Nikon lenses, 4GB card, usb reader, tripod, hard case, soft bag case, flash, 1200.00 ? The other can't even touch that.

    Do not be sorry. EBay is buyer beware.

    Use B&H.

    purchased via DSN, digital shopping network,which is also known as sunshine camera/electronics out of New Jersey, sent the whole package, good price some of the stuff which was not worth having, case, tripod, small tripod, cleaning kit, etc other add on junk that just "added" that looked much better in the picture, lol, should have gone the B&H route, might still return it, the lenses that came with it are not what I expected either, we will see.

    Good luck with the camera. Someone should have warned you about those package deals.

    Don't forget to mail in your registration form. They frown on tardy submissions.

    Sunshine electonics has a rating of 7.64 out of 10 for the last six months which is not close to the 9.47 that B&H has.

    I was warned but did not pay attention in time, lol. Have already ordered some other stuff from B&H.
    Any good sources on used lenses? Trying to save a little and was curious if there any places that sold good used lenses. Thanks.
