I have owned D80 for many years and still used it when I want to walk about shooting anything; I leave D300/800 for more specific shooting tasks. Lenses are for more long term investment. You always need a collection of lenses more than the bodies to extend your capturing capability, from macro to wide angle to telephoto. I found out the keeper images I have we're from D80 with various lenses because it is so easy to forget the equipment you are using and focus on the subjects. Just my 2 cents. Cheers!
