Greetings,

Call me daft but I've just purchased a used D2h that will replace my D80.

I seldom crop and I don't shoot wildlife so the 10 MP sensor is not a priority for me. Quite honestly, I'd have liked the D80 better if they offered it with a 6 MP option.

I shoot scenics around water quite a bit and I also shoot pooches for hire. Not traditional canine portraiture, but active captures while doing that which dogs do best - running around making idiots of themselves!

I use mostly non-AF-S primes and I'm after the faster and more accurate focussing of the D2 body for the dog work.

The body has 20K clicks on it, and comes with three batteries (all level 1), and a Magic Lantern guide which I'm sure I'll need!

The body was cleaned and had the metre replaced a few months ago. Its supposed to be in excellent condition so hopefully I've spent my $1000 wisely. I'll know by the end of the week when I receive it.

If the D2H fills my needs better than the D80 then I'll have to market that camera as I can't afford to keep both.

I'm really looking forward to next weekend! Can't wait to lug around a pro body
