Good Points
its a scaled down model of the f100, loosing only the build quality of the pro model. fast auto focus, custom fuction viewfinder grid, great ttl flash metering.all controls well set out, with a great focusing diaopter built in to the camera.

Bad Points
slightly dim viewfinder. cannot meter with manual focus lens. when using multi zone predictive focus fuction, it doesn't light up the focus point it is uses batteries if a lot of inbuilt flash is used.

General Comments
As a sports photo-journo, i find using the multi frames per sec function switch and the 5 focusing points on the Nikon N80 locks on to nearly every fast moving object i photograph giving sharp photos.

in dim or night conditions the dim viewfinder can be a problem seeing whats in the photo area.using it with an sb 22 or sb 26 on programme gives well lit flash photos all the time.

the small size and weight is great after a few hours walking around sports fields with two cameras with different sized zooms around your neck. people with large hands can fit the extra aa battery pack for an extra grip and longer camera battery life.
