Have sold all of my Canon film camera and was looking at the Nikon D90 to
replace it. Can get a really good deal on a D80. Is the D90 worth the extra
money.
Any feedback from D90 users would be appreciated.

Most of my cameras have been chosen from models just before
they've been discontinued. The D90 was an exception, as (for me) it
was sufficiently better than the D80 that it replaced. Here's a
good D90 review that compares it with several of Nikon's other
DSLRs, but primarily with the D80.

I have a D200, same image & viewfinder as the D80, it's alright but the
D90 looks like a good deal. It's a D300 in a D80 body plus some
improvements for $500 less ($1000). OTOH the D80 seems to be selling for
around $600 which is a bargain.

I would have said the two primary advantages are higher ISO and video.
The sensor cleaning is a minor item.

I absolutely second the analysis in the cited link!
Before my shortly finished travel to Egypt (2 weeks) I had the D80
but could get the D90 in time and used it intensively to document
the travel (short under 2000 fotos, JPGs and often NEFs).

My main points are (compared to the D80):
Obviously better colors, reduced noise and therefore usable ISO
automatic in situations where one is in a hurry, and one should not
underestimate the Chromatic Aberration correction which is tedious doing
it manually on such a lot of fotos taken in a country with so much
light. Video was nearly useless but served comfortably for adding
comments to the fotos.

Regards Udo
