    After months of teasing, sifting through tons of officially unofficial deets, finally getting some good pics of the camera itself, and being envious of all those previewers who got their grubby hands on this beauty before anyone else, the dust has begun to settle and the verdicts are out. It probably doesn't come as a surprise that the Nikon D80 DSLR is essentially everything we hoped for, and the bottom line seems to be that this digicam borrows a myriad of features from the wallet-abusing D200, but won't force you to refinance your home (well, hopefully not) in order to own one. For the Nikon faithful, this one's a no-brainer, but for those without any particular allegiance, it probably wouldn't hurt to give Sony's Alpha A100 a once over, considering its noteworthy bonuses -- such as the Super SteadyShot and anti-dust features that you won't find on the D80 -- before pulling the trigger. Nevertheless, reviewers are (practically) unanimous in giving their recommendations to this camera, especially at the sub-$1,000 (sans lens kit) price, but comb these reviews with your own discerning eyes before jumping on (or off) the D80 bandwagon yourself.
