Hi bthall17, welcome to the Cameralabs forums!

It's always worth searching for a shop on www.resellerratings.com as they have reviews from previous shoppers, who'll tell you if they got mucked around. If there's no reviews, then they're too new an operation to judge and I'd steer clear. Basically though if the deal is too good to be true, then there's normally a catch.

As for store recommendations, you haven't said where you're based!

If you visit our Nikon D80 review though, you'll see prices for major - and reputable - stores in the US and UK listed down the left hand side of the intro page here: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/NikonD80/

If you scroll down to the bottom of that page you'll see extended price boxes which also list the prices of various D80 lens kits.

I live in Arizona (USA) but have been looking for an online purchase so I do not have to pay the sales tax. This is the other package deal that I have found on a different website...

18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 ED-IF AF-S VR DX Zoom-Nikkor

D80 10.2 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera W/ 3D Color Matrix Metering II

4GB Secure Digital Memory Card

Full Size Lightweight Tripod with 3 Fluid-Head and Quick Release

Medium Size Stylish Black Water Resistant Camcorder and Digital Camera Case

SD/MM High Speed Card Reader

Instructional DVD

Protective Lens Pouch

Memory Card Case (holds sup to six cards)

Lens Cap Keeper

Deluxe 3 Piece Photo/Video Lens and LCD Cleaning System

Universal Digital Camera Screen Protector

Wrist Strap

Retail Store Price: $2577.73
You Save: $1178.73
Our Price Today: $1399.00

Any suggestions/comments? Does this sound "too good to be true"? I don't really care about all the other random things, I jsut want to make sure the camera, lens, and memory card will be up to par.

Hi bthall17!

As Gordon says: Most important is the reputability of the shop. Look it up at reselleratings.
As to the price of the combo: It looks fair, not overly agressive (I assume w/o tax?!?). But don't expext the tripod to be the most stable or the SD card the fastest one.
B.t.w. a 4GB card will cause probs, if it is not of the SDHC standard. and the card-reader will be junk too, if it does not support the same standard. So this could be sort of an acid-test to find out whether thei're selling you junk add-ons...

I looked it up on that site, and it had horrible reviews. Thanks for the information. I'll try to find a local shop or soemthing. I basically just want the body and the 18-200 VR lens. If anyone finds a good deal on the web, feel free to shot me over the information. Thanks!

As to the price of the d80+18-200VR in Europe that can be had for 1400EUR incl. 19% VAT.
That would translate into approx 1650$ w/o tax. But the pure $ conversion could be misleading: many Sigma lenses cost the same amount in $ as they cost in EUR (that is a price of 280EUR in Germany translates into 280$ in the US, although I'm not sure whether the US-prices include taxes).
So you can judge yourself whether a price you see at an american dealer seems ok or ridiculously cheap.

I'm not sure if this if worth having. Nikon provides a rather nice (if basic) guide to both the D40(X) and the D80.

bthall17, it's also always worth checking Amazon.com - this link will take you to their Nikon D80 and 18-200mm page.
