I've been comparing my D50 to my D80 today with interesting results.

The D50 holds up very well against it. In the shade shooting flowers the D80 had more fine detail but the D50 shots just "looked" better.

Indoors with flash the D80 was a clear winner with better color and detail.

Outdoors in overcast the pics were so close that it took real hard looking to tell them apart.

The D80 does great with high ISO, every bit as good as the D50 plus it goes to ISO 3200 which is usable.

If I had to go take good pics right now, I would grab the D50 because Iknow it so well. I think the D80 will be just fine, but I'm going to have to learn its personality.

With the D50 I used to shoot in RAW and then learned how to make camera adjustments to make jpegs be as good. I think I'lll need to shoot RAW with the D80 for a while and figure it out.
