Good Points
Exceptional value in terms of price/features.
Many features of the F100 at a fraction of the cost.
Accepts standard threaded cable release.
Accepts Nikon glass.

Bad Points
Light poly carb body build - would hate to drop this one.

General Comments
When I purchased this camera new about 5 years ago, I had a hard time deciding between it and the F100 which was 3x the cost. I knew the camera shared nearly all the same features of the F100, but was built on a poly-carb body rather than the metal frame of the F100.

I expressed my concern to a camera sales person at Hunt's and he told me, "Buy the N80...if you drop it, buy another, you're still ahead on the cost over the F100."

Excellent advice - I love my N80 and even though I shoot my D80 digital SLR frequently, I often come back to the N80 when shooting film "old school." It really can't be beat if you're looking for a feature-packed modern film SLR. Buy one!
