    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
