Odds are, yes. But if the speculation is correct that they have been holding back production of the D50 and D70 in anticipation and stockpiling these then maybe not.

All the Nikon reps are suggesting that the D80 will have no supply problems. Evidently this explains why the D70s and the D50 have been so hard to get hold of - they have been manufacturing this new camera for a while.

A nice thought but... let's see.....

It will be tough to get. If it's as good as I suspect I'll order all of them.

Hi,

I think it will be very easy to get one. Honnestly i even think we may be able to get it within one week. Why do i think like that? Well i have to say that i don't know much about marketing, but i can't see why a company like Nikon would do a teaser campaign for 20 days, telling it's potential customer that the new camera will not disapoint them, and them tell them :''here's the new D80, you will get it at your favorite Nikon shop in time for Christmas 2006''...

I mean, what's the point of doing a teaser, if you can't deliver the camera after the teaser? Just annouce the thing and tell people to wait 2 months.
If the D80 is not available really fast, i think they'll lose some customers. Not people like me that are equiped with Nikon lenses, but customers that currently own point and shoot camera, and that are looking to get a DSLR.

Tomorrow morning i'm calling my dealer and i really hope he's going to tell me he will have them fast.

Well, after 9 months since introduction of D200, B&H still cannot keep body in stock. Production capacity is limited. They can only produce certain number of units a month and initial demand will almost certainly exceeds the production capacity.

I however really do not see it is gonna be as hard as getting a D200. I have not seen the excitement here for D80 as I saw that for D200 before it was available.

The excitement may not be there but the demand will be.

I got a feeling that the above will fall into the famous last words category.

Yup...the D80 will probably be as big as the D70, which is to say way bigger than the D200. Price point is important here. While I own the D200 and like it, I have not found it to be as good a value as my D70 or the D2Hs I've used. Many D70 and D50 owners will make the jump to the D80. Looks like the D200 will probably be the only Nikon entry point for faster shooting under 2K, which still gives Canon a serious advantage against the D80 is it's just 3 fps.

Can't get a Camera ? Move to China.
We have D50, D70s, D200, 18-200 VR , Supply is no problem
Compared to UK costs are cheap, D50 for £280, D70S kit £450, D200 £750, so I'm hoping that D80 won't be a problem, cost should be about £500 (7500 Rmb).

The launch of D80 may reduce D200 prices for UK residents, its a thought.

That is because RMB is the no 1 speculation currency right now 7500RMB will soon become $1000, not a so impressive price

On second thought, how much is an EN-EL3e?
