#15. "RE: D80"
In response to In response to 14

I do not think this is an either/or situation. A longer term plan could address specific weaknesses and shifts in priorities.
What about selling the D80(yes, it is fine....until shooting with even a D90 when the display, noise performance, metering, etc are experienced it is a worthy upgrade for almost no money since used D90s are $400 or so) to improve in just about every category of performance, a little, not dramatically but those little improvements translates to a better image and use.
Consider what you shoot and get at least one lens that you feel will work better for your main interest. For example if you are interesting in portraiture, a $450 85 1.8G is a great lens, at a great price that would sing on a D90, and up, even a D800.
If you have an interest in more creative control of your lighting, getting a good speed light or adding to your collection. Nothing increases options and image quality as much as photographer optimized lighting.
There is a total of about $1200 and almost assured of having more appealing images.
