A friend has asked me to purchase a used DSLR for her husband for Christmas. For those of you who have or have had the D80..... do you think it is a good choice for a relative DSLR beginner?

I personally came from a D90 and now have a D800 with a lot of good glass...so I know about good glass vs new bodies etc., but if you have a D80... or came from one ... do you think it is a camera a DSLR beginner can learn on and still grow with for a few years? I have read mixed comments so far.

We are trying to put together a kit for only a few hundred dollars and I can do that with a used D80 and some used glass, but if I move to the D90 (for example) it can almost double the cost. I would like the opinions of current D80 users whether they think the D80 has been good to them and delivered good pics.

All opinions welcome.
