hi, i have been offered the opportunity to buy either the nikon d80 or d200 both are in very good condition with about the same shutter count (5000). Any advice would be appreciated in which one to settle for.

D200 every time......
Agreed. Though I am biased as I have one....but as far as I remember it's a step up from the d80 as far as functionality etc. goes.
D200 ........... its expected shutter life is longer as well as being a step up the ladder
Another vote for the D200.
Yup! Agree with all the D200 is a better bet all round...!
Not only is it a better build, The shutter is way better built, Many have been reported as only getting a little dodgy at over 400,000 actuations, Lots have made it to half a million before going splat.....
The inner gubbins are better too, Check out the specs especially the processing department, All in all a used D200 is a better/wiser investment than a D80 any day.
hi to everyone who has taken the time to advise me on which camera to consider, no choice then its the d200.
Again the D200 that's not to say the D80 wasn't a great camera ( i still have mine converted to IR) for what it's worth image quality wise there's nothing to choose as they both had the same sensor
I have the D80, and would recommend the D200.
I had a similar decision to make and chose the d200 for a couple of reasons
1. it'll work with my manual-focus Nikon primes - if you don't have any, they're worth getting, especially the 55mm Micro Nikkor because AF is useless for close-up.
2. it's rugged and nicely weather sealed.
I use mine for walkabout so it won't have heavy use but it could be used in the studio as a backup.
